Painting Exterior Stucco House
3100sq ft 2-story with two 9' garage doors; stucco on concrete block. Just did re-roof & re-stuccoed chimney + first floor front of house and would like to repaint entire exterior...but can use some guidance.
gutters are down
awnings/shutters are down
lights are down
2 estimates so far for 1 coat primer + 2 top coats...
1) Flat rate $3650 Labor & materials included. (Porter Paints).
2) "Day rate" i.e $250/day PLUS materials (Benjamin Moore).
They both seem disagree on whether or not to pressure wash the newly re-stuccoed areas and what is the best primer & paint to use especially on the chimney, which previously leaked but was caulked & patched prior to re-stucco so my chimney guy says I need to use a waterproofing paint called elastomeric <sp>.
