Before we could paint the old sections with old or mixed shingles the house needed to be cleaned well.
The area that needed it most was the wall between the conservatory (left) and the kitchen bump-out (right). And the oil tank (which someday I’d like to hide).
The other bad area is on the east side of the house.
These two places get minimal sun and grow a mossy layer which I would not want to paint over.
Charlie started by pressure washing the back area with the double window that looks into the dining room. (I was not home so I can only report before and after.)
He also gave special attention to the back stairs since those, too, will be stained and painted.
Like any house cleaning chore, this took longer than Charlie expected but now that it’s started we can paint the rest of the shingles.
Can’t wait until the entire house is Sandy Hook Gray.
What cleaning chore is at the bottom of your list?
