  6. Preparation of Work Surfaces
    Contractor shall exercise extreme care in preparing the wood siding for the application of the paint. The wood siding is cedar and is basically soft wood. Power wash equipment must be operated by an experienced operator so that the wood is not unduly damaged. The intent of the power spray is to remove the loose, scaling paint and the portion of wood siding which has been degraded by ultra violet light exposure. Too strong a spray will remove the pulp and raise the grain causing an unsatisfactory appearance. The equipment to be utilized shall be capable of delivering a minimum of 2400 psi and 4 gpm. The operator shall use a 30 degree tip and maintain a distance of 12-14 inches from the surface or as needed and/or unless directed otherwise.

    For mildew and algae contaminated areas, the washing solution shall be Power D Mildew Sterilizer and Detergent as manufactured by Finnaren & Haley. The Power D Mildew Sterilizer and Detergent is to be mixed with clean water and applied at 200-250 sq. ft. per gallon (4-8 wet mils in thickness) in accordance with Finnaren & Haley recommendations. Wait at least 20 minutes for the material to do its job and rinse thoroughly with a garden hose. TSP may be used to help clean the surface, however rinsing is required. CAUTION: Do not let the Power D Mildew Sterilizer and Detergent dry on the surface. If applied in hot weather, a light water mist should be applied to keep it damp for easy removal. Wait at least 48 hours after using the Power D Mildew Sterilizer and Detergent and cleaning operation - or longer if moisture is not at approved level - before applying the Storm Plate 30 Acrylic Stabilizer and Hardener.

    The wash spray shall be directed so that it’s force will not direct the solution under the siding, back of the flashing, or directly against glass surfaces. The operation of the spray unit shall be controlled so that the wooden surfaces are not damaged by excessive force of the spraying materials. The power washer shall be operated at about 1500 PSI, using a 30 degree tip or as required by the job to remove all dirt, loose paint, fibers, etc. to provide a clean, dry rough paintable surface.

    After the wooden surfaces have dried from the power washing, exposed weathered wood must be sanded approximately 1/32 of an inch to remove deteriorated wood fibers, thus exposing the un-weathered wood surface for the Storm Plate 30 Acrylic Wood Stabilizer and Hardener. NOTE: Contractor shall re-nail the areas where nail heads were removed by the sanding process. Contractor shall sand and/or scrape as required to feather-in painted to unpainted surfaces, and to remove any remaining loose paint, lifted wood fibers or grain raised by the power washing. Contractor to scuff sand any glossy smooth areas. Flat grain boards are a problem and the darkened grain areas shall be scuffed-up to provide a suitable paint surface.

    Contractor shall power wash a sample area consisting of the side of a garage unit to gain approval of the power washing technique. Loose paint shall be removed by scraping, and the area will then be hand sanded as required. This area will then serve as the model for the project. In instances where the Contractor determines a particular piece of siding is too severely damaged by ultra violet light degradation to permit a suitable appearance after the painting, or if the siding is badly warped or rotted, it shall be the responsibility of the Contractor to mark such pieces and the Managing Agent shall review same on a case by case basis. The Managing Agent will have any unsatisfactory siding replaced at their expense.

    The Contractor is responsible for the following during the course of the work:
    1. Covering all trees (as possible) and shrubs for their protection during the pressure washing and spray painting.
    2. Flushing with clear water after the power washing, approximately ten (10) minutes, or until no residue remains.
    3. Removing all loose caulking. Replacing caulking with a clear or brown paintable extended life silicone product.
    4. Siding board ends, exposed to packed snow and/or rain, should be sealed and protected, areas such as dormers are of particular concern.
    5. Re-nailing any loose boards discovered during the course of the work and replacing all nails where the head is removed during the preparation of work.
    6. Removing all downspouts, house numbers, unit numbers on garages, mailboxes, etc. before painting and replacing same immediately after paint has dried. All disconnected downspouts and mail boxes must be reconnected at the end of each work day.
    7. Masking windows, gutters, downspouts, light fixtures, sliding doors, roof shingles adjacent to siding, etc. as required to prevent overspray onto these surfaces. The masking shall be removed and disposed of each day at the completion of work on the unit.
    8. Protecting all plantings, shrubs, decks, patios and all residents’ personal property with drop clothes. Debris created by the Contractor shall be removed at the end of each work day. Any spills or splatters of paint shall be cleaned and removed by the Contractor.
