More often than not when we’re estimating projects, we find some wood rot that needs to be repaired. When Great Plains Painting was brand new, we looked at estimates from other companies and noticed it was impossible to tell what was included, how it was priced, if labor and materials were included, etc…so we decided we’d price our wood rot differently than everyone else.
Note: we only estimate and complete wood rot repair when full exterior painting is also included. At this time we can't take on wood rot only projects unless they are significant in size (i.e., 1 whole side of your houses siding needs replaced).

How We Price Wood Rot Repair Services In KC
We want to be as clear and transparent with you on the wood rot repair estimates as possible. As such, we itemize the wood rot repair on each estimate.
Here’s what included in our wood rot repair estimates:
All labor and materials required. The price you see on the estimate is what it costs
Itemized list of what’s being replaced, quantity, unit price, and location
We use software to take and markup pictures and we’ll show these to you. They also get printed and given to our crew so they know exactly what’s included and what needs done. We can also email you the report if you want it
We separate the wood rot repair price from the painting price so it’s clear what it costs on it's own. This way you can compare it to others or if you have a handyman or carpenter show it to him and get an estimate for the exact same items

Sometimes wood rot issues are the result of using the incorrect materials for the project. We look at some projects and see others have used cheap pine or poplar (common board) to perform the repairs and within a couple of years it’s already rotted again.
Not all materials are created equal when it comes to working with exteriors in the Kansas City area. We exclusively use the following materials because they are designed to perform well in our climate:
LP Smart Siding and LP Smart Trim
James Hardie Siding and Trim Products
Roughcut or Milled Cedar if a Real Wood Product is Required
Yes, we are capable of residing one, multiple, or all sides of your home. If we do so, we think the best product on the market right now is James Hardie siding. It is fiber cement, so it does not rot, is engineered to minimize joints and caulking, therefore minimizing failure points, accepts and holds paint extremely well, is hail proof, is fireproof, and looks great. James Hardie has an excellent warranty and can even come pre-colored (factory painted) making it a top competitor for longevity vs cost.
