Painting and Staining Porches
Been very busy lately with some big projects but thought I needed to get something up here! Been quite some time so here you go. We were able to squeeze a few small jobs in recently and painting and staining porches are the project for the day.
Trouble with older stained porches is getting the color to match the new stain. Even more troublesome is new boards and old boards. This porch had recently been fixed and had two new pieces. Using Benjamin Moore Arborcoat solid stain we had at it.
There are a good many colors to choose from and we wanted to compliment the siding and awnings. Anita, the home owner, was very happy.
The second porch was painted before and needed some of the older paint to be sanded and scraped.
The bottoms are usually always worse than the top.
Once the loose material is scraped away, sand the edges down with 100 grit paper then 180 or 220 grit. Using a good thick paint like the PPG Manor Hall line will hide any slight imperfections.
Once cleaned up and painted, the porch will look much better.
