Hi, my name is Steve with Master Craft Painting here in San Diego and I will show you a little bit about stock patching today here at Stock O Homes that we have in California. A lots of times what you’re going to see is damaged stock o.
Right now, this is the finished product after we’ve applied the stock O but if you have a whole and loose stock O like this. You might need to come back and use the stock O patch. So some of the tools we’ve been using are floats, hand trials and buckets to mix the stock O in.
The first step in this process like we washed you before is power washing the house and that’s going to remove any of the loose stock O and the deeper holes, what we want to do is go ahead and float on and fill those deep holes with stock O.
After we let this dry, were going to come along behind it and use a little bit looser mixture and were going to do what’s called a Spanish lace. The texture on this particular home and were going to do almost like a skip trial and it’s a little bit tricky and you actually might be more comfortable hiring a professional for this. Takes years of experience to perfect this, after this texture is applied you’re going to wait until that dries and were going to put a coat of primer on that.
In the patching, in repairing phase, we’ve got one additional stuff that we used. We got this stuff called Flex Tech. Special two-component epoxy. It mixes in a special gun at the tip of your and—it’s a little bit expensive. It’s about $50.00 for a kit but its superior to Bondo and any other patching materials because of its flexibility.
What we’ve done here is we’ve got a French window where again the moisture got in to the surface of the wood and it have rotted out the wood. So were going to go ahead and mix up the epoxy and smoothen it in to fill up this hole here and here. Now were going to sand it down and prime it and finish it. The advantage of this like I said is wood when it gets hot and cold, its going to expand and contract and if the patching went through you use this too hard. Its going to end up popping that patch out. This stuff is going to remain brutal and flex and move with the normal thermal expansions of the wood.
