Exterior Repairs and Moisture Protection for a 100-Year-Old Home in Mission Hills

 Exterior Repairs and Moisture Protection for a 100-Year-Old Home in Mission Hills

The environment unfortunately is always working against your home. Weather, damage, and natural decay are what you and I fight against as we maintain, repair, and improve our properties’ exteriors.

This becomes especially important when the structure you’re dealing with is an older home, where time has created more opportunity for a breakdown of essential systems. Our goal, and this is a huge part of why we love what we do at Chism Brothers Painting, is to then complete quality repairs and painting that do not just turn back the hands of time, but make your surfaces better than ever.

Repairing Caulking and Fillers to Protect from Moisture

Moisture is an enemy of your home, working its fingers into any cracks and crevices that it can find and then systematically making small problems bigger. That was the scenario we found when we were recently asked to complete an exterior repair and painting project for a century-old home in Mission Hills.

As you can see in the photo below, there was a major caulking and filler failure, allowing for moisture to creep in and begin rotting the siding.

One of our craftsmen, Bernie, cut four, one-inch-wide metal strips, then shaped them perfectly around the decayed corner. He secured them into place with galvanized finish nails, ensuring that these corner caps will be here for another century.

We then matched a paint to the existing exterior color, painted the new strips, and blended them into the home.

At the end of the day, not only was the unsightly, decrepit crack repaired, but this weak area is reinforced and protected from further moisture damage. Great work, team!
