An ounce of Prevention
is worth a pound of Cure
Most Kansas City area homes built within the last 25 years have moisture sensitive siding, window and trim materials. Preventative sealing, flashing, repair and updates are critical to maintaining products commonly used in our area. Particularly vulnerable are builder grade window and siding systems (including Masonite, Abitico / Abitibi, Louisiana Pacific Smart Panel, and Stucco). Using our 19 years of experience in maintaining (and replacing) these systems, we design a comprehensive approach to maximizing the life of your existing materials. Although time consuming, hand painting exterior materials (with a brush and roller) provides superior lasting protection to these vulnerable exterior surfaces. This premium method, combined with strategic caulking, repairs, flashings, and other improvements can prevent the premature failure (and expense) so often seen in today’s newer homes.
Our product of choice for most substrates is Sherwin Williams Duration. Although more expensive than regular paints, Sherwin Williams Duration Coating provides unsurpassed performance on both wood and cement based substrates.
