Redwood Siding Restoration in Davis, June 2013

Redwood Siding Made Beautiful

Siding can be a beautiful feature on the exterior of your home.  Over time, however, it weathers and changes color.  Sometimes it becomes blotchy with dark areas.  When you want to stain it, you really need to take the time to prepare the siding the correct way.

We recently painted a home in Davis, CA with redwood siding only in the front, but the siding had turned a dark brown in areas and red in other areas.  The homeowner wanted to see the beautiful grain, but the siding sealed with an oil base product and had become sticky.  In order to restore the wood, the prep was crucial in bringing it back to life.

The first thing we did was wash it with Sherwin Williams product called Revive.  It is a stain and sealer remover and it has to be rolled on, let sit, scrub with a brush, and rinsed off.  As the product comes off, the wood becomes fibrous and looks like horse hair.  The siding then was sanded and it became beautiful and smooth again.

Because the wood had light and dark areas, we combined Sherwin Williams Woodscapes Semi Transparent Stain in Chestnut and Woodscapes solid stain in Ranchero Red.  The two stain colors married the Cape Cod Red solid stain on the eaves with the Sherwin Williams French Roast brown on the fascia and gutters, bringing everything together for a beautiful new finish.

The key to this process was prepping the siding properly to allow the absorption of the stain.  If done poorly, the stain would not be able to penetrate the wood.  All in all, the homeowner was very happy with the new fresh look of her siding and her home now stands out in her neighborhood as one of the best.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

You are an excellent company and I couldn't be any happier with your work. This is your second job for me and both were excellent.

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

What a difference!! We hired Brooks Painting to do both an interior refresh painting and a completely new exterior color. Everything was handled professionally and as promised. The team, from estimator to office to painters on site, was responsive, friendly and skilled. Brooks Painting is the most reliable contractor we have ever hired. Thank you Jeremy, Dan, Israel, and Kristen.

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

Dale S.

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.
