      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Painting Stucco

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if this is possible and what type of paint to use? My house could really use some paint on it but not sure how to do stucco.

Thanks

Painting should be your last resort. Once you start painting you won't be able to stop and it will become a fairly regular thing. Consider calling a stucco company and ask for a quote on 'redashing'. In that process they put on another top coat of stucco. It will be a bit pricey but that should take care of things for a very long time. It also gives you the chance to change colors or texture.

I have painted stucco in the past. As stated above once you start, you will have to keep painting. Stucco is create, so latex is your material of choice. I thing I used Supper Paint from Sherwin for the job. Contact a paint store like Sherwin or Hirshfields. THey will stear you in the right direction.

I say paint until you need new windows. Then get new windows, doors, and stucco. Besides mold, the windows are the biggest problem wit stucco. You need to be able to get them out and replaced as they only last 15-20 years or so.

I hate painting and I have no idea why someone would want to paint their house, and keep painting it, but that is what I would do in your situation.

I have painted for 20 years. I agree with Tom. If it is not painted now I would not ever paint it. I would save some cash and have it re-dashed. If you paint it and then later decide to re dash(stucco) it will have to be sandblasted to remove the paint.

If you do decide to paint dont cut cost on paint. Use something high quality like Sherwin williams Duration. Or elastomeric.

If you like I could get you the number for my stucco contractor. I do stucco tear offs then they re-apply the stucco for me. He would gladly come out and give you an estimate for a re-dash. I could email you the info if you would like.

If you really want to paint it check out permcoat. I've heard good things about it and I think it has a lifetime warranty.

Got new windows two years ago. It looks fine, but the house is white and kinda has a "dirty" look to it. Just kinda wanted to freshen it up you know.

Have you tried Crud Cutter house wash and a preasure washer? If you are just looking to freshen and clean it up, that will do the job.

I get mine at menards, but it is available at home depot as well, usualy in the paint department. I dilute it in a 5 gallon pail with about 3 gallons of watter and apply it with a garden pump type sprayer. If it is realy dirty, the foaming head will let it set on the wall a little longer. Give it about 10 min or so to work, then rinse off with the preasure washer.

Strait crud cutter, not the house wash, will do the job as well or better. But it will eat some paints, so if you stucco has been painted it is best to test it so you dont strip your finish.

I pressure washed my mothers stucco with just water and it made a big difference.

My house is also stucco and I painted it 18 years ago. Used a sprayer and did two coats. It still looks good and has not been painted since. The only reason I painted is that the previous owner had painted a couple of panels and you could see the painted vs unpainted sections. My first coat was a top line Enterprise brand (since out of business) and the second coat was Sherwin-Williams brand.

    • Someone is telling me Nils is out of auger business.  True?
    • No problem, if your looking for something pre-made just google 'speaker spacer rings'.  There are a million options for different sized speakers all pretty cheap.
    • Thank you, that helps a lot.
    • Anyone here know anything about this round?  My father-in-laws's uncle used to have a lever action rifle that shot .35 Whelen. I just did a search to try and learn more about the round and see what the gun may have been but it appears that lever action guns were never really available in .35 Whelen and it was most likely a .30-.06 that was altered.  If that is true it sure makes me want to learn more about that gun.  Does anyone here have any knowledge of .35 Whelen?  I'm thinking of getting a lever action soon and because of price and availability of ammo was only considering a .30-.30 but now am looking harder at a .35 Remington. 
    • Loaded weight 3450 lbs i think it was 450 on the tongue.
    • id rather fall through the ice and listen to tom yammer on and and on in his defensive videos.  i've got extensive hours with the proview.  no thanks.  tying cone angle to the sensitivity knob is one fo the dumbest designs i've seen.  it has application sure, but its limited
    • Well they won the 2 out of 3...keep it rolling boys
    • Do you know what model that would be? I suppose it's possible but it's just not reality. The large majority of criminals identify as Christians and that's a fact.
    • Brings back memories and reminds me of something I had totally forgotten!!   Decades ago was at a wilderness cabin with a couple guys and on of them had this carbine. I shot it a few times (open sights) and took it out for a walk next morning. Shot two deer at around 50 yards and they both dropped dead.  Am surprised the item you have in photo has a recoil pad since I do not recall any recoil at all. Always thought it was a handy little piece but never used it again and had no inclination to buy one. Do have a 10-22 of course
      (doesn't every home have one:) and other items. Many don't know Ruger makes their BIG rifle in .22 caliber with a laminated stock. Had one with nice Zeiss glass and it was a tack driver.  Don't recall what I did with it. Okay, back to standby.
    • Lots of different opinions on this topic apparently.  I've done about ever single one listed so far and the best way I've found is to lower the ice shack all the way, pop the tops on your catch covers and start drilling holes (try and be as close to the center as possible, no big deal if you're a little off).  Don't clear any of the slush just yet but place the hole sleeves down your holes.  With all the slush still there you may have to step on them to cut through the slush but it makes a really good seal.  Then I sweep what shavings have come up to the house (if any) back down the holes.  Get yourself a slush copter http://www.slushcopter.com/ and start clearing your holes.  I spent the $60+ on a slush bucket and totally regret it after spending my first season hauling slush all season.  The slush copter takes 10 seconds to clear a hole filled with slush and you don't have to lift anything or scoop your holes afterwards.  By far one of the best investments I've made for my ice shack.  Never blocked my shack either but not a bad idea to at least have a spud bar with to break yourself free if you do freeze down.    For some rookie advice:  Get yourself a slush copter and a set of IC Nuts https://winchdrivertools.com/.  Your back will thank you.  Also, if you have a Honda Generator it is mandatory that you get CLICK HERE to change your oil.  It makes empting your oil so much quicker and cleaner.  Other nice add-ons for a Honda generator is the extended-run fuel tank or an hour meter to keep track of hours (for oil changes).    Congrats on the new toy.  Tight lines!
