This estate in Morristown was in need of painting & some small handyman repairs and improvements: maintenance of the home’s exterior including repairing some shutters and repainting a corner that had become very dirty over time. CraftPro fixed everything.
Exterior House Painting
The picture above shows the preparation that went into the refinishing and repainting of this small nook of this very large estate in Morristown, NJ 07960. The second picture shows the finished product: a like-new, clean corner free of chipped paint and mildew. After the washing with bleach, the power-sanding and the oil-priming of the cedar siding we applied three topcoats of a 100% acrylic, top-shelf paint-and-primer in one, making this once-dingy little corner effectively brand new.
Maintenance & Cleaning of the Grounds
The rest of the project was essentially maintenance or handyman work. There were two shutters that needed replacing but the homeowner opted to have us simply temporarily fix the shutters by nailing, screwing and gluing them back together. This homeowner, a charming elderly woman, had trouble keeping up with the maintenance of such a large house, so we helped her: we cleaned the steel trap door (pictured) to the basement that had mold growing on it. We cleaned the windows and the doors and their respective frames, and dusted and swept the grounds, using a powered backpack-blower to clean and make the place presentable. We even cleaned off the table tops on the porch. The homeowner, who lives just down the street from me, expressed her gratitude and appreciation several times. For me and for CraftPro that’s what it’s all about: customer satisfaction.
Interior Priming & Painting: Windows & Textured Ceiling
The textured ceiling in the basement had a large water-leak stain, so we used an oil-based stain-blocking primer on that stain and other discolorations throughout this very intricate ceiling. Then it was given two coats of a high-quality paint-and-primer-in-one with a Matte finish for added durability. Our owner’s brother, Michael D’Angelo, was part of the crew on this job and was a huge part of this home improvement project’s success. He is pictured below in a vintage-style photo of him at work. The homeowner was so pleased she provided a substantial tip upon the job’s completion. Interested in our house painting and versatile handyman services?
