Exterior Painting

May 30th, 2010 § 1 comment § permalink

Part of owning an old house is knowing when to do the work yourself and when to hire someone to do it for you.  I’m still learning.

When I bought the house the front gable end and the 3rd floor window above the driveway were in rough shape.

Last year I rented some scaffolding and set it up in front of the house in an attempt to repaint the 3rd floor gable end.  It turns out that I’m not comfortable that high up on shaky scaffolding.  It was also too far a reach to be able to scrape, prime and paint properly.  The scaffolding went back and I moved on to other projects.

This spring I called the professional painters and finally got the job taken care of.  A Genie Lift was delivered first thing in the morning and the painter showed up shortly after.  The job was done in a day and was professionally completed.
