After pressure washing the exterior, we had to remove the drip cap because the old was draining water back toward the house causing the bottom of the siding to deteriorate.
Because it had been a while (11 years) since it was last painted we wood puttied quite a few areas.
Then we installed, caulked and primed 1×4 trim.
Then we primed all raw wood.
The entire exterior of the house was then painted. This project was completed in the March 2014.
