On this Cocoa, Florida exterior repaint we repaired several staircase stucco cracks and a buckled stucco area.

Water had gotten behind the decorative stucco piece and rusted out the wire lathe at the front entrance of this South facing 10 year old home.

Which ultimately caused the stucco to buckle and fail in that area.

The whole house had chalky and faded paint that we had to deal with by priming all of the surfaces to be painted first, before we could start the exterior house painting.

1) We first pressure washed all of the exterior surfaces to be painted on this stucco home.

2) Repaired the buckled stucco areas.

3) Next we spot primed the repaired stucco areas with Richards- Rich Flex alkali resistant acrylic masonry primer.

4) Then we applied Richards- Rich Flex multi-surface conditioner (due to chalkiness and also to assure good adhesion of the finish coat) to the rest of the surfaces of the home to be painted.

6) Lastly we applied two colors and two coats of Richards- Signature Series 100% acrylic satin house and trim paint to the stucco walls, bands, columns, garage doors and all exterior entry doors.
