We all want our houses to look nice
but it’s not always fun to spend money on the basic upkeep of our homes.
Over the past year our roof has developed a black discoloring on the front. Our neighbor had the same problem and used a pressure washing company to clean it up. I figured I would try them out too. I mean, what did I have to lose? Look at this disaster…
Under each of the windows, you can see discoloration.
And here is the roof after the power washing!
So much better!
Supposedly it will get even cleaner after a few rains.
(Oh and the stucco is much cleaner too!)
I really am thrilled with the results!
Like a new roof!
Here’s a quick look again at the before and after…
Big difference huh?
I feel like clapping…
“Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof”
(I had to throw that it because my son just loves that song!)
Anyway, I really am thrilled with the results. But as we all know, home projects tend to snowball….
While they were washing the house,
I had them also power wash and re-sand the pavers.
I don’t have a “before” but trust me,
weeds were growing up between and they weren’t pretty!
But like I said about the snowball effect…
Since everything was so clean, we discovered the trim on the house needed to be repainted.
You can see some nail pops above.
The boxes in the dining room bay window also needed a fresh coat of paint. We had replaced the trim on this window with PVC a couple of years ago but inside the boxed areas are still wood.
And after our harsh winter,
the trim around our garage desperately needed some repair!
At the moment, this is what is going on at my house…
Now I have to be really careful not to crash my car mirror into the trim again!
For those of you from NJ who want your house or roof cleaned, I highly recommend PSI Pressure Wash.
I am not being compensated in any way to mention them. I just thought they did an excellent job!
Have you done any maintenance at your house this summer?
