Removing oxidation for your cement board siding is a must before painting.

Oxidation is a formation of fine powder on the surface of the paint film during weathering, which can cause color fading and failure of the new coating if painted over.

Lake Area Painting can get rid of the oxidation by using a Hot water pressure washing and special cleaners.


Exterior Semi-Transparent Stain

30 years we have been taking care of this customer. We have re-stained the wood siding every 10 years with a semi-transparent stain. The average life span for this type of product is 5 years.  Preparing the surface is the key to any paint or stain job.
