I am getting ready to paint my house. Stucco. The paint is about 12 years
old and not in pristine condition.
Harborfreight sells a power washer for 79.99: 2 Hp motor, 1300 PSI, 1.7 GPM
Would something like this be suitable for cleaning stucco and removing dead
First determine what kind of stucco you have and what condition it is
in. You can easily damage stucco with any power washer.
Second I would recommend renting the proper washer in the ideal size for
the job. Harbor freight stuff can be useful, but it is not usually of very
good quality. Renting a really good unit is going to make that part of your
prep much easier.
Note: My comments are based on the assumption that power washing of any
stucco is a good idea. I do know it is not recommended for some stuccos.
