Equipment: M.A.B. Sea Shore Satin Paint

It’s been two years since the wooden railings that surround a second floor terrace had been stripped, sanded, resealed and painted and unfortunately, it shows.

The solution — called Mr. Handyman of N.E. Queens for the following project:

General details:

  • Remove any remaining paint (mild soap/water);
  • Apply supplied primer;
  • Apply supplied paint;
  • Remove any resulting debris.
