Merritt Island – Wood Siding Repair – Exterior Painting

Merritt Island - Rotten Wood Siding RepairThis Project Blog is about wood siding repair and exterior repaint on a home in the Diana Shores subdivision Merritt Island, FL.
We were contracted to repair a section of the wood siding that had water damage from years of just being in the elements of the harsh Florida climate and then repaint the entire exterior of this Merritt Island home.

First task was to remove a 2′ x 16′ section of the wood siding at the bottom of the north side of the home that had water damage and wood rot.

After the rotten section of the siding was removed, we checked the wood framing to see if any of the framing need to be replaced due to water damage. No damage was present on the wood framing or bottom plate.

You can do it and will save $$

Put time into doing it right; you need to clean surfaces, remove blistering and chipping paint, repair dry rot or damaged siding other wood/stucco areas. Find paint schemes that work (look at other homes in your neighborhood) and apply samples before buying in 5 gallon quantities.
Consider renting a sprayer to do large surface areas and do windows/trim with a brush. You can even paint eaves using a sprayer and this saves a lot of time.
Chances are it will take at least 3 full weekends to do an average size house.

I would definitely ask

It's much better if you initiate the discussion than wait until it gets sprung on you.
Often the windows are the biggest expense in a deleading project but seems that won't be an issue for you. It will cost you some for an inspection but it will be worth the $$$.
Is the exterior of your house aluminum or vinyl siding or is it wood? Is the trim (window and door frames, baseboards, window sills) painted or stained? Either can have lead but paint is much more likely to. Are the doors painted?
Flat wall surfaces are not an issue if the paint is not damaged but you'd want to know if there was lead in case you ever needed to cut into those walls for say an electrical or plumbing repair or something
