Owning a home with a bit of history is a unique experience. Each creaky floorboard and aged brick tells a story of its own. But sometimes, even the most cherished homes need a little rejuvenation to bring them back to life. That’s exactly what happened with a 60-year-old house that recently underwent a remarkable transformation using ZAR® Deck & Siding Solid Color Coating on the front door, garage and windows and DRYLOK® Latex Concrete Floor Paint on the front porch and steps.
The House with a Story
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, this 60-year-old house had seen its fair share of memories and wear and tear over the years. The homeowner, who was keen on preserving the house’s charm, decided it was time to give it a facelift while retaining its unique character.
Bringing New Life to the Front Door, Garage and Windows
The front of the house was the perfect place to start the transformation. The old wooden front door and windows had weathered decades of sun, rain, and snow, leaving them faded and tired. The homeowners opted for ZAR® Deck & Siding Solid Color Coating, knowing that it could breathe new life into these essential elements.
Choosing the Perfect Color
One of the exciting aspects of using ZAR® products is the wide range of colors available. With the help of the ZAR Visualizer, the homeowner was able to select the color with ease. After careful consideration, the homeowners decided on a beautiful, deep shade that complemented the house’s classic architecture. The color breathed new life into the façade, creating an eye-catching focal point that beckoned guests to the front door.
Application and Results
Applying ZAR® Deck & Siding Solid Color Coating was a breeze. The homeowner was impressed by how smoothly it went on and how quickly it dried, allowing them to complete the project in just a weekend. The result was astonishing. The front door and windows looked like new, and the rich color brought warmth and elegance to the entire front of the house. Passersby couldn’t help but admire the transformation. ZAR® Deck & Siding Solid Color Coating combines the opacity of paint with the penetrative properties of stain. This innovative formula embraces self-crosslinking Core-Shell Technology with a performance-enhancing Urethane to yield a material with unmatched performance in durability, adhesion, weather ability, and color retention.
Reviving the Front Porch and Steps
With the front of the house looking stunning, the homeowners turned their attention to the porch and steps. Over the years, the concrete had lost its luster and was in need of some attention. DRYLOK® Latex Concrete Floor Paint was the perfect choice for this part of the project.
A Clean Canvas
Before applying DRYLOK®, the homeowner cleaned the concrete thoroughly. First, by sweeping away any dirt and debris and then power washing the area to ensure a smooth and even finish. She then filled any cracks in the concrete with DRYLOK® Pourable Masonry Crack Filler.
Application and Protection
The application of DRYLOK® Latex Concrete Floor Paint is an all-in-one paint and primer solution specifically formulated to beautify and protect concrete surfaces. It was straightforward, and the results were nothing short of remarkable. The homeowner chose a shade that complemented the new front door, garage, and windows, tying the entire project together seamlessly. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, DRYLOK® offered essential protection against moisture, ensuring that the porch and steps would stand the test of time.
The Final Reveal
The transformation of this 60-year-old house was truly astonishing. What was once a tired and weathered façade now exuded charm, elegance, and durability. The front door and windows gleamed with their new coat of ZAR® Deck & Siding Solid Color Coating, while the porch and steps were both beautiful and resilient thanks to DRYLOK® Latex Concrete Floor Paint.
As the homeowner stood back to admire their handiwork, they couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride and satisfaction. Their home had not only regained its youthful appearance but had also been fortified against the elements for years to come.
This project was a testament to the power of quality products like ZAR® and DRYLOK®, which not only make home improvement projects more accessible but also allow homeowners to preserve the character and charm of their cherished spaces. The 60-year-old house had received the facelift it deserved, and it was now ready to welcome a new chapter of memories and stories.
