The Kind Woodwork Process
Your dedicated Account Manager will work with your schedule to make sure your wood replacement can take place prior to your scheduled paint dates.
You don’t have to be present for the actual wood replacement but we’re happy to accommodate your schedule.
Your Service Technician will complete a woodwork walk in order to confirm your scope and mark up the boards to be replaced. This helps make sure nothing is missed.
This usually happens at the same time as your pressure wash, if applicable.
You’ll receive an email the week before letting you know which day our Carpentry Team will be out to your home.
The carpenters will go directly off your work order to complete all quoted wood replacements for siding, trim, etc. Your painters will be sure to prime and caulk at the start of your project.
- Siding Replacement: Any damaged or swollen siding should be repaired or replaced. Our estimator will guide you to the best option before paint begins.
- Trim Replacement: Exterior trim often shows signs of damage and wear before anything else. If you have trim pieces that are failing we can help get those replaced.
- Fascia Replacement: We can help repair fascia even if it’s underneath your gutters. Rotten fascia boards can lead to significant damage to your home to replacement is often the best solution.
- Soffit Replacement: Soffits can be challenging to replace but our experienced carpentry team is here to help!
- Eaves Repair: Eaves are often damaged by pests like squirrels or birds. Damage to your eaves should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent any bigger issues with your roof.
What We Do Best
Frequently Asked Woodwork Questions
Wood replacement is a common necessity when you are painting the exterior of your home. Kind Homes can assist with light to medium wood replacement including replacing rotten trim, siding, fascia, and soffits. There are additional carpentry services available so be sure to discuss any concerns with your estimator at your paint appointment.
Does Kind Home Painting Co. offer woodwork as a stand-alone service?
We take pride in the warranties we offer our clients so as of right now, we only offer carpentry services to our paint clients because we know that the new wood will be sealed and protected properly.
How do I know if I need wood replaced on my home?
This is a great question and we’ll be sure to do a thorough inspection of your home at your estimate and point out any areas of concern with you. If you have boards that are swollen, damaged, bowing, or are soft then it is likely time to replacement them. Options for repairing and protecting existing boards will be discussed when that’s a viable option.
How are new boards prepped out?
All bare wood and metal will be primed and caulked at the start of your exterior paint project. This ensures the board is sealed and paint can adhere to the surface.
What if it rains between having my boards replaced and the start of painting?
Nearly all lumber is stored outside in a lumber yard so there shouldn’t be any issue if it rains between your carpentry work and the start of painting. We just want to make sure that the new wood has time to dry out before it is sealed and primed. During peak season this usually only takes about a day or less.
