We bought this place about two years ago and knew that it was not really big enough for my needs, so I decided that I would build something and call it a guest house. In reality it is going to be the place where I do my hobbies and where I watch sports with my buddies. I got a painter in bergen county nj to help me with the exterior of the house, but he does vinyl siding too and what I wanted was a very specific look that would have been a huge pain if it had been done in wood and then painted. This way it looks very close to the real thing and you can not tell that it is vinyl unless you have the expert eye.
Of course when it starts to get dirty I shall just get some RV cleaner and a pressure washer. It is goin to be very easy to take care. If you painted something like this, then you would have the devil to pay when it came time to re paint it all, as there is a ton of fine detail in this job. You would have to climb up on an extension ladder with a roll of painter’s tape and spend hours masking it off before you could start painting. Then you would be force to remove the painter’s tape and mask off the parts that you had just painted. You would be talking about a tremendously difficult and tedious process, the sort of thing that I do not have any real time for. Of course that painter would have been just as happy if I had wanted to pay him to do it. He loved the look of it and took some pictures after we got done with the job.
