 Repairing and Painting a Patio Cover in San Diego

We’ve recently been showcasing a variety of home painting and repair projects we’ve finished here in the San Diego area, ranging from garages to decks to exterior paint and stain. It’s been a busy summer, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Today, we thought we’d share a closer look at a fantastic paint and repair project one of our longstanding craftsmen completed. Rather than involve a deck or siding, however, this repair involved a patio cover.

How Can You Repair Extreme Dry Rot? With Extreme Craftsmanship!

Dry rot is an insidious foe, sneakily working its way into any weak points in your home’s exterior. Once it finds a good base camp, it sets up a buffet line and begins working its way through any healthy wood fibers it can find.

In this case, there was substantial damage done to the wood in our client’s patio cover.

We began by completely rooting out the issue and starting from scratch with replacement wood. The patch would later become a seamless, invisible repair, but it began (as you can see in the slideshow above) as an addition of healthy wood to replace the section that was beyond saving.

After the Repair It Was Time for Painting!

Well, technically this was a SuperDeck solid body stain from Sherwin-Williams. As you may know, stain is offered in a variety of opacities, and solid acts very much like paint. It finds a home on decks as well, but oftentimes homeowners prefer more transparency to let the natural grain shine through. That wasn't a necessity in this case, and the solid body stain offered the kind of complete protection that the sunbaked wood needs.

At the end of the project our client was left with a restored, attractive, and healthy patio cover. It was a pleasure to put our expertise to work!
