This project involves removing all of the paint from the siding, deck & rails, & facia. To remove the old surface, we must cob blast the siding. This technique involves a 185 CFS air compressor & a cob blasing machine. Bits of ground up corn cob are blasted at the walls, as with sand blasting. The surface paint is removed, leaving the natural wood siding. The surface is then sanded to remove paint around the knots. Two coats of wood iron is applied. To remove the paint from the deck, we will dismantle the deck & rails. The paint will then be sanded off on a machine called a "Time Saver". It will handle up to 6 - 2X6 decking planks - a real time saver. All of the baulisters, planks & cap rails will be sanded to new wood. Then two coats of Wood Iron will be applied.

This home had an old finish that could not be removed with stain removers, so we cob blasted it. This removed the old finish without damaging the wood. After rinising the house, we applied Wood Iron.

The Atha home was painted with a purple, which the owners did not like. Cob blasting is similar to sand blasting, except we use ground corn cob as a medium with a high pressure air compressor. It raises the grain slightly, however removes 99% of the old paint. The cob is recycled through the blaster several times before it is too round & full of wood pulp to use. We rinse the siding to remove all dust & pulp before applying Wood Iron on the surface. It is now returned to natural looking wood.
