I NEED TO REPAIR CRACKED PLASTER EXTERIOR WALLS ON MY 1937 SPANISH HOME.I ALSO HAVE SOME AREAS THAT WERE REPAIRED WITH STUCCO. UGLYYYY! AND, NO I DON'T WANT TO USE A FINER STUCCO, IT JUST ISN'T THE SAME LOOK AT ALL.
I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY A FRIEND IN CONSTRUCTION THAT THERE ARE PRODUCTS THAT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE AND OR NOT ADHEARE WELL IF NOT USED PROPERLY OR WITH THE RIGHT COMBINATION OF MATERIALS.
I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO PREPARE THE CRACKS, THE STUCCO REPAIRS AND THE OVERALL ORIGINAL PLASTER FOR A FRESH PLASTER COATING.
I ALSO NEED TO KNOW THE SECRET MIXING TECHINQUES AND MIXTURES THAT CREATE THAT BEAUTIFUL SMOOTH FLOWING LOOK. I WAS TOLD BY AN OLDER PAINTER TO PUT BOILED OIL IN YOUR EXTERIOR PAINT TO KEEP IT LOOKING NEW MANY YEARS LONGER. COULD SOMETHING LIKE THE BOILED OIL OR MAYBE SOME TYPE OF ACRYLIC MIXTURE BE ADDED FOR DURABILITY AND BETTER ADHEARENCE TO THE PREPARED SURFACE?
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ AND RESPOND TO MY QUESTIONS.
