in this video by ABN Painting we are working on exterior a two-story stucco house and this is the look of the house before we started preparation work.
There's quite a bit of paint that is peeling especially around the trim a few holes in stucco.
On a back patio ceiling joint tape is missing, on the front patio ceiling there is a lot of peeling paint, metal side gate has a little bit of rust on the bottom.
We scraped any loose paint by hand and applied elastomeric patch to scraped areas to fix any hairline cracks.
To fix any larger cracks and in trim fascia we used latex caulk and after we squeezed it out of the tube using caulking gun we used the brush to spread it evenly throughout the trim.
We musked all windows using plastic and green tape.
Green tape gives approximately three days of clean removal.
If the tape is removed within three days from the windows it will not leave any residual glue.
Using green tape and 12-inch masking paper we masked off staircase and the wooden patio that will not be painted.
We masked off the unpainted block wall.
To protect the floor on the back patio we used paper around the perimeter and covered the middle witrh tarps.
After scraping loose paint near the foundation of the house we applied elastomeric patch.
The side of the house that belongs to the neighbor we covered with paper.
On the front of the house we covered with tarps all concrete surfaces.
To protect roof shingles from all spray we run a 12-inch masking paper next to the stucco and when we're ready to spray paint the second level we'll cover the rest of the shingles with tarps.
We fixed all holes in stucco using stucco mix.
On the front patio ceiling we scraped all loose paint.
Re-textured the ceiling using drywall mud and using latex caulk filled any gaps between the stucco and the drywall.
On the back patio ceiling after we applied joint tape we textured the ceiling as well.
We're sending both ceilings on the front as well as on the back before applying the primer.
To prime repaired areas on the ceilings we're using general-purpose primer ultra grip by Dunn Edwards.
It is of dark color for no specific purpose it is just leftovers from one of our previous jobs.
After we are done with priming we apply the first coat of paint of the body color.
Before spray-painting metal gate we're using an oil-based primer to cover the areas that are rusty.
After we are finished spray painting the body of the house we're using a mini roller and a brush to paint the trim fascia.
After were done with cleanup and touch-ups this is the look of the house.
Preparation work and spray painting stucco house with wood trim.
Painting is an easy and less expensive job to carry out if you are able to do it yourself. All you need is to follow the interior painting step by step process given in the sections below.
The first step is to have the area selected. As a beginner, use the room, that you can use for practice first. The room which is not seen often. For example, your laundry room. Choose the colors and paint sheen. Make your selection according to the area you want to paint. For instance, for your laundry room get paint that is easily washable and also that holds well in the areas where there is moisture. Semi-gloss paint would be the best choice here. Do research when you do not have any color in mind. Look into interior magazines and skim pages with colors that appeal to you. You may also visit a paint store and look at the color pallets they provide. Buy a few samples of paint. Apply a sample on the wall, wait until it is dry and see if that is the color you had in mind.
Start to paint walls once the ceiling is dry. Do all the cutting in first working with a brush. Use a high quality brush to make a job easier. Then proceed to painting the rest of the area with a roller.
To avoid spilling of paint on the floors, cover all the area that is being painted very carefully. Remember that painting is always the easy part. It is the preparation work that counts the most.
