Sometimes your home will need to have the wood siding taken down and new wood siding installed. This can be for many reasons such as:
- poor water drainage;
- insect infestation;
- woodpeckers making holes
- home being 20+ years;
- rotten wood siding
In this video, I walk through a recent project we did. I compare the old boards and new boards:
I show two brand new pieces of beveled siding. They lay on top of each other with about an inch or one inch and a quarter reveal. The new cedar siding boards will lie flat. Now see in the video how I compare a brand new board and the old board. As you can see, the old board really cups up and does not lie flat. What has happened is as the boards age, they dry up and cup up. This then allows:
- bugs to get up in between the boards;
- water to get into between the boards;
- animals to get in there;
- not keeping your home well insulated either;
This will cause major rotting to occur over time. When fixed, this will solve these problems and give your home a much better look.
So how do we prepare the new cedar boards being installed so you get the most longevity? We back-prime the new boards. Install the new boards, and then stain up the whole home. This makes it hold up and gives the project more durability.

Your powder room is desperately in need of wallpaper removal. You know that you lucked out and had picked out a great wallpaper years ago which lasted for more years than you imaged. But it’s time. It’s time to remodel your powder room. But you don’t want to do a full scale remodel project.
There are inexpensive ways to update your powder room. One of the quickest and easiest ways is having
your wallpaper removed. It is a simple solution that can revive that boring room. Be prepared, though, that when having your wallpaper removed, it can take off part of the drywall. This is very common and expected. If that happens, the drywall will have to be patched and repaired. Afterwards, you will need to make sure all the paste is cleaned off, prime the walls, and apply the paint. For most, this is too much to figure out, which is understandable. We would be happy to help you get your bathroom up to current trends and strip the wallpaper and get it painted.
You know that whenever someone comes to your home, your guests will be needing to make frequent trips to the powder room to freshen up. Update your powder room by having your wallpaper removed and a clean coat of paint applied to your walls and ceiling.
Let Brenda and I help you get that one bathroom in the home that is most used up to speed with current decorating trends.
