Home Owner's DIY (General painting) Forum / Exterior Paint issue.
« Last post by J2roch on May 25, 2017, 05:56:08 PM »
Newbie here.

Just had our exterior of home painted by a company that was rated A++ here in Phoenix area.

I had a lot of hairline cracks on the stucco.  Vertical, horizontal and spider web look.    Tbe company pressured washed, then put on a coat of Dunn Edwards Evershield Flat on.   After the coat thete were still hairline cracks visible.  They applied Dap Custom Patch Sanded with a brush.  They then applied a 2nd coat.   After the 2nd coat dried you can see where all the hairline cracks were because the Custom Patch was bleeding through!  The company said they would be back to fix.  Tbey came back and applied a coat of flexible masonary primer which is for stucco hairline cracks.   Then they applied another coat of paint,  but still can see all the brushed lines from Custom Patch.  Anothet coat of primer and paint again and lines are still visible!!   My stucco finish is becoming non existent because of so many coats.   They want to apply another coat of primer and paint!

Anyone have any ideas of what happened in my case and how to eliminate the Custom Patch lines?

Thanks

Home Owner's DIY (General painting) Forum / How to prep rough textured plaster
« Last post by Jeremiah on May 24, 2017, 07:35:45 PM »
I was just wondering if someone could suggest how to prep rough textured, painted, indoor plaster walls? There is no peeling paint whatsoever. You can't really sand the walls. So, is it best to just thoroughly wash the walls etc???

As soon as it's dry.

Off Topic / RAILROADS IN PHOTOS AND PAINTING
« Last post by demi on May 24, 2017, 04:17:26 AM »
Photos and paintings of railroad stock is another of the things Im interested in. One of my favorite artists is the late Ted Rose who painted several classics for the Santa fe and the Union Pacific. He also did hundreds of watercolors of freight stations and caboose. If you have any photos or paintings of this subject,please share them.

Planning on painting our house ourselves due to budget. We are going to power wash the exterior this weekend, how long does vinyl siding take to dry before it can be painted? Thanks for any info or tips!

Hi Guys,    That time of year again up here outside of Boston.

I know I've posted a couple of years ago on this topic.  I have two sides (house and garage) that get hammered by sun year-round.  Older cedar shakes.  Originally painted Benjamin Moore Ticonderoga green (A deep forest green) no longer available .   When repainting in 2011,  I used SW Duration satin which they tint matched to the old BM color.  The house was prepped well.

After 5 years the tinted Duration satin is badly faded and blistering here and there.

Do any pros on here know if the Benjamin Moore Aura with the Gennex technology is a better choice for fade resistance than the SW Emerald that is now available for my particular problem

I Thank You for your time in answering or giving an experienced opinion.

YES indeed
