Wonder if anyone can give some guidance re painting the outside of my house.
Just been made redundant so can work full time on it.
I have read a few books and they all make sense except for a few ( probably
stupid ) questions.
I have a few hairline cracks, that have been checked and are not serious.
What would be the best way to fill these so the hopefully do not open up.
I understand I should clean the walls first, is it a case of a bucket of
water and sugar soap and scrubbing ?
The walls are quite rough, is it still possible to use a roller ?
For the wood behind the gutters etc , is it ok to use "one coat" paint,
(trying to lessen the time up the ladder.)
The paintwork at the moment (magnolia) has a few light green stains, where I
think rain has dripped of the rough wall finish. Is there anyway to reduce
this happening ?
Am I right that two coats are better in the long run ?
Can anyone recommend an exterior paint for an exposed house on the coast?
Thank you in advance
