 Trim Repair and Painting in Del Mar, CA

If we could boil down two of the main take­aways you often hear in our blog arti­cles, they would be: 1) keep up on your main­te­nance paint­ing, and 2) make sure the job is done the right way. 

Main­te­nance paint­ing is a big deal for your San Diego home because it helps to pre­vent big­ger prob­lems and expens­es. Ongo­ing care is much more effec­tive (and cost-effec­tive) than ful­ly restor­ing your exte­ri­or after years of ignor­ing it. Pow­er wash­ing, touch-ups, wood repair… All are critical.

And doing the job the right way is essen­tial too. Cut cor­ners and band-aid fix­es nev­er offer real solu­tions, and often need to be redone in a short amount of time. It’s more expen­sive to pay for three bad paint jobs than it is to pay for one real­ly good one. 

With all of this in mind, let’s talk wood repair and care, plus exte­ri­or house paint­ing. Win­dows, doors, and trim are par­tic­u­lar­ly vul­ner­a­ble to wood rot and decay, mak­ing it essen­tial that you invest in proac­tive, rou­tine main­te­nance. This is espe­cial­ly true of our more coastal com­mu­ni­ties, like Del Mar, where the air­borne mois­ture con­tent is higher. 

How about a real exam­ple? Let’s take a look.

Wood rot repair and paint­ing in Del Mar

What a beau­ti­ful home! Unfor­tu­nate­ly, how­ev­er, there were sev­er­al areas of wood rot that reared their ugly heads around the win­dows — very com­mon. The best thing to do is catch the issue as quick­ly as possible. 

We were able to patch these par­tic­u­lar sec­tions, remov­ing the infect­ed wood and fill­ing it with spe­cial­ized prod­ucts designed for the pur­pose (more on that below). Then, we sand, prime, and paint.

Repair­ing or replac­ing wood rot

Your first option is to ful­ly replace the wood. This is the best route if the sur­face is just too far gone, or if it’s in a place where con­tin­ued mois­ture expo­sure is going to guar­an­tee a recur­ring prob­lem. In that case, you may want to switch to a com­pos­ite prod­uct, like PVC

The sec­ond option, if the wood is still a good can­di­date, is to repair with spe­cial­ized epoxy and wood fillers. This is ide­al for spot repairs, where a skilled car­pen­ter can remove the rot­ten por­tion, then fill the blem­ish with a com­bi­na­tion of wood seal­er and epoxy. After sand­ing, prim­ing, and paint­ing, you’ll nev­er know a repair was done.
