Pro Finish for T1-11

Schedule Paint Doctors Painting for soon after the siding is installed.

According to the The Engineered Wood Association, real wood surfaced siding comes in several configurations including reverse board and batten, T1-11, and channel groove.

Weather can cause damage to the raw products within a few weeks so schedule Paint Doctors Painting for soon after the siding is installed. The APA recommends an all-acrylic latex house paint system of primer and topcoat.

We know the prep and application techniques to finish your T1-11 type siding for long lasting protection and beauty. Getting proper penetration and thorough coverage requires experience and extra work – often a combination of spray and back rolling because of the texture of the wood fibers.

Repaint should be done before the surface shows deterioration and peeling. If UV and weather damage are present it may take some extra work to get the walls prepped for paint. We can explain these details after looking at your building.

2021 Color of the Year: Urbane Bronze

Tap into nature with a hue whose warmth and comfort breathe down-to-earth tranquility. The Sherwin-Williams 2021 Color of the Year, Urbane Bronze, captures that simple sophistication every space is searching for.

Find Your Sanctuary

Now more than ever, our homes have become the backdrop to our lives, reminding us that the moments worth cherishing have always been right in front of us. As we’re looking to create the ultimate retreat for reflection and renewal, we’re turning to a hue whose natural simplicity and nature-inspired energy cultivate a sense of calm from the ground up.

Rooted in Nature

The trend for biophilia continues to shape our spaces, proving that nature is never far away. Urbane Bronze might be a color rooted in nature, but it also has a unique ability to ground a room through organic appeal. Whether it’s accentuating window trims or accent walls, this warm hue draws from nature for a feeling of relaxation and serenity. It also works well with other biophilic elements including, light-filled spaces and foliage.

Coordinating Colors & Materials

Bold and understated, our Color of the Year is the new neutral that can be used wherever and however. Pair it with other warm neutrals and bone whites, like Modern Gray, to create an updated take on minimalism. If you want to bring in more color, modern greens, like Messenger Bag, can be introduced to add a hint of bolder style. Complete either look with natural materials like wood finishes, stone accents, and mixed metals that tie these earthy neutrals back to their nature-inspired roots.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets

Upgrading your kitchen with some vibrant color changes is a trend these days. A change in color scheme can make a big difference. Check out some cabinet project information at Sherwin-Williams.

Call the Paint Doctor for professional help because this project comes with a WARNING: Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.

After removing the hardware, we recommend that the cabinets be thoroughly cleaned with a good cleaner degreaser to remove all grease and oils that normally buildup on kitchen cabinetry over time. Once cleaned, we recommend applying a test sample of Extreme Bond Primer in an inconspicuous area.

Let the primer dry at least 24 hours and sand again using a “very fine” grit sandpaper. Gently smooth out the primer coat, then wipe the primed cabinets with a damp cloth to remove any debris before applying your first coat of paint.

Using a 1″ or a 1½” angled brush, first apply paint to the recessed or detailed areas of the cabinet door. Avoid getting brush marks on the flatter and smoother areas. Next, immediately paint the remaining flat areas of the door using a mini roller. Gently roll over any overlapping brush marks or paint drips to smooth the surface.

Let your first coat dry for about 24-48 hours, then apply a second coat in the same manner. Again, wait 24-48 hours and once the second coat is dry, you can reinstall your existing hardware, or add new hardware to complete the makeover.

All Angles

Applying a solid wood stain to a structure like this shade producing pergola requires a deft touch on a properly calibrated spray gun. Much of the material was pre-stained on saw horses before the structure was built. However, for looks and to protect the wood from the elements, literally every angle must be considered to complete the covering of the wood surfaces.

Pergolas, shade covers, corrals, fences, bandstands, kiosks, trellises and lattices require some serious skills. Call Mike at 541-497-3804. It’s a pro move.

Painting PPE

The Paint Doctor knows personal protective equipment (PPE) for jobsite safety. This knowledge starts with the chemical characteristics of the product being applied. We take all of the precautionary steps to mitigate against harmful vapors and the products which can be invasive through the skin.

It’s another good reason to call the pros!

Curb Appeal

Few things can improve the curb appeal of a house like new exterior paint. Dated colors, dingy trim, UV damage, mold and dirt can all be addressed in the prep and paint process of an exterior re-paint job.

But there are other benefits as well. These include improved weather protection, lower energy costs and added protection against insect invasion.

Weather protection comes in the form of a caulking that prevent water intrusion and a quality paint top coat that protects against moisture and damage caused by ultra violet light. Many homeowners underestimate the importance of paint to the longevity of the home’s exterior.

Caulking also helps seal a house against heat loss by preventing air movement through the joints and transitions at the trim boards, siding seams and corners. This can be very helpful to your energy costs for both heating and cooling.

An exterior paint job also gives you the opportunity to change your color schemes. This can both update and improve the looks of your home. Multi-color paint schemes can really accentuate the right features of your house.
