Paint It Right! – May 2, 2014 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
It often just seems easier to replace wood siding that never holds paint for more than 3 to 5 years. This workshop will show how to achieve a paint job that can last from 12 to as many as 20 years. For property owners and small contractors, cost effective painting of wooden exteriors is an excellent way to save money and preserve original materials.
Exterior Wood Repair – May 1, 2014 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Too often it just seems easier to rip out the old and replace exterior wood materials on old and historic houses with shiny new products. This workshop will teach the techniques to preserve original, exterior wood components while saving money while doing so by repairing rotted trim, columns, balustrades and other wooden architectural features rather than replacing them. Architectural epoxies as well as real wood repairs to original wood surfaces will be the major focus of the workshop.
