Some of the most coveted homes in Philadelphia have one thing in common: deck space.
Everyone wants their own private bit of the great outdoors where they can gather with friends to enjoy a meal or a drink with a view of their beloved city!
Homes with a deck are almost never left vacant for long, so long as the deck space looks great and has been cared for. If you’re trying to sell or rent a home in Philly with a deteriorated deck, it can make the process surprisingly difficult.
A homeowner had recently transformed their Center City house into a rental property. Unfortunately, after years of neglect from its tenants, the exterior had begun to deteriorate. Even the deck was discolored and in need of repair – see the before photo!
The customer didn’t want the home to be left vacant for too long and risk missing out on income from rental payments. LaffCo. Painting sat down with him to discuss all of the work that needed to be done to make the home rental-ready.
We custom matched the colors of the exterior, touching up areas which needed a bit of TLC. The deck was refinished with a stunning stain called Lodge Brown by Sherwin Williams.
Despite the very small window we had, the LaffCo. team got the job done quickly, efficiently, and thoroughly. We met all expectations, and delivered yet another home run project. The home was immediately rented out, and our client did not have to miss out on any monthly rent payments!
