Good preparation and a clean, solid base is critical in making a paint job last. Sanding is underway at this Essex Fells home that features great architectural details like the corbel pictured above. Sanding the corbel and the surrounding soffit to bare wood ensures a great surface for bonding primer application. The copper gutter will be removed or completely covered prior to primer and paint application. We can’t wait to see how this home looks when it’s completed.
