I showed you how we got ready to paint the west facing area above our covered porch here.
Because the set-up requires putting holes in our new roof we didn’t want to drag the job out and do it in stages like the rest of the house where we’re painting the shingles first then planning to come back later to paint the trim.
Charlie started at the peak of the roof scraping, caulking, and priming.
Charlie worked his way from the peak of the roof downward and to the left.
He scraped the vintage round window which opens by rotating the bottom half.
He removed the downspout and painted the perpendicular wall which is the side wall of the master suite’s walk-in closet.
Charlie has been following a plan of caulking all seams then, while the caulk is drying, painting the large areas.
After the caulk has dried he paints the trim “Ultra Pure White” by Behr and cuts in the house color, “Sandy Hook Gray”.
It has taken a few days but this area above the porch is painted.
The only thing that remains is replacing the shutters for which a ladder on the roof is not necessary.
We’ll strip and paint the shutters in spring, 2016.
Do you work left to right, top to bottom? Or in a patchwork manner, like we do?
