The historic Congress Park area of Denver has many beautiful turn-of-the-century homes that, over the years, were converted into multi-unit apartments. Usually, much of the architecture was kept intact as much as possible. Walls were added or torn down, doors were installed, plumbing had to be redone, but the main structure was the same. So it was with this lovely home. The owners were in the finishing stages of renovating this colossus back into a single-family dwelling from a four-plex. The inside was done, the brick work was complete and it was time for the HappyPainters to protect it for the decades to come.
We use the same process for brick as for frame homes – there’s not a lot of slats to caulk, but the transition between sub-straights is a natural problem area, so we still had our work cut out for us. In the end, the results were fantastic. We sprayed the body, paying special attention to coverage on all the angles, sprayed the soffit, then brushed the ‘trim’ eyebrows above the windows and doors and all the exposed rafters. A classic look for a classy house.
