El Patio Building in La Jolla refinished with Dunn Edwards Evershield

The El Patio Building in La Jolla California needed a face lift! The owner watched us working for months on the restoration of St James by the Sea just down the street. Impressed with our level of preparation and attention to detail, he asked Peek Brothers Painting to attend to his building as well. Extensive wood repair was necessary and to protect from further wood rot, we installed drip flashing on all exposed beams and rafter tails. Finished with premium grade Dunn Edwards Evershield, the building has now been restored to its original beauty. Thanks to Dunn Edwards Representative Dan Harris and his team for helping with color and specifications. A special shout out to Jennifer, LeeAndra and Joe at the Kearney Mesa DE store for mixing 100’s of gallons of paint for us!

Another Unique Client Request for Christmas

Every so often a client will have something unique that needs coating.
Here is the story of this unique paint job:
Our client’s father made these Christmas lawn decorations back in the 1950’s. Over the years, due to weathering, the colors have started to de-laminate from the Masonite backing. The client wanted to preserve these precious family mementos and send them back east to the next generation.

We were asked not to touch up any color but to seal everything so that no more de-lamination would occur. After 4 coats of clear with a little extra on the damaged areas….they are ready for their Christmas trip back to the east coast.
