Over years of weathering and miscellaneous contractors adding and removing material to the façade at the Hen House in Prairie Village, it was time to renew the storefront. On the East elevation wood rot was caused by leaking gutters as well as failing paint. On the North elevation the complete façade had to be reworked due to water penetration causing excessive damage and wood rot.
On the East elevation, approximately three wood sign panels were removed and replaced, latticed were reworked, new crown molding around the upper windows was installed, new gutters were installed, two faux columns were removed from the front entrance, and all of the columns received new trim. This elevation also received a fresh coat of PPG Exterior WeatherKing Satin Paint to match the existing color scheme.
The North elevation was in the worst shape. Due to poor flashing and excessive water damage, all of the wood sign panels had to be removed and replaced. The paneling was replaced with 4x8 smooth primed siding and the existing vinyl trim was replaced with 1x3 cedar trim. The whole façade was then repainted using PPG Exterior WeatherKing Satin Paint.
This project was completed over a two-week span. The largest challenge faced was the heavy flow of store traffic. Store interference was minimized by taping off work areas and redirecting the store traffic when around the front entrance of the store.
