Were going to be painting our house which is stuccoed my question is
which would be better? should i use a brush and roller or a paint
sprayer? and if i do use a sprayer would i be better off buying one
from hd or renting one my budget will only allow me to spend $300.00
for one which is the max dx model is this a good model or would i save
time money and frustration by renting? the house is small enough to be
sprayed in one day.
Our place in AZ was 120' wide and averaged 20-25 feet deep. Total distance
around foundation was over 300' lin. Ext. walls upto
20' high..A very large exterior. It had an attached 3.5 car 1450 sf. garage
w/ 9' ceiling.
Total 5000 sf under roof.
I sprayed a coat of stucco seal on the whole place.. IIRC, that alone took
7 - 8 5 gal pails. Then a coat of stucco paint.
Inside and in garage, I did 2 coats of PVA drywall primer, then a coat of
interior acrylic latex throughout.
After that, I had a lot of empty 5 gallon pails..the neighbors were asking
for them for years <G>
BTW, after 4 years in the AZ sun, a bobcat whacked a chunk of my stucco &
underlying Styrofoam SM board on the south (sun) facing side of the house..
After I patched and retextured the stucco, I painted the patch. I was
surprised to find that after it dried, the patch blended in so well, it
couldnt be seen- the original paint hadn't faded enough to make the patch
noticeable..That was good paint.
