Wood House Painting

Let your beautiful Wood home get the top notch care it deserves!


The foundation of Bentler Painting was built on exterior painting of wood houses and Victorians.  


We are experts in how to properly maintain and restore wood siding through proper preparations and painting.  Owner/Master Painter, Vince Bentler,  is also an experienced carpenter and performs repairs and replacements on wood siding.


During your estimate with Bentler Painting, we will:


  • Inspect the entire exterior of your wood home for needed repairs
  • Discuss existing and preventative problems with you
  • And, based off your suggested wants and needs, we will offer you different options for the solutions
  • Discuss paint colors


Proper surface preparations are necessary to achieve a lasting finish on any type of house siding; however, with wood siding, it is critical. 


  • We apply House Cleaner, scrub the wood siding with a house cleaning brush, and rinse with hose. 
  • Scrape entire house (board by board) with Hyde Carbide Scrapers & Blades remove all loose existing paint
  • Perform Repairs - we repair or replace wood siding, window frames, steps, porch floor boards, rails, pickets, and gutters.
  • Fill all holes found on the house exterior, caulk, sand, and patch.
  • Prime (we hand-brush Peel-Stop Triple Thick bonding primer by Zinsser)
  • We finish the house by hand-brushing professional grade exterior paints/stains from Cabot, BehrBenjamin Moore, Coronado, or Olympic and we use high-quality professional paint brushes from Corona & Wooster.


The end result on your house will be a smooth, even, detailed, long-lasting paint finish.


It is important to note that Bentler Painting does not pressure-wash wood siding.  It is one of several reasons why our hand-brushed exterior painting of wood houses lasts a long time.  We will be happy to explain why pressure-washing wood siding is not a good idea when we talk to you.
