A most beautiful paint, but...


Recommended Posts

Doesn't sound like it should be put over Redwood?

ColorTek Paint Grade Exterior Stucco may applied over the following products:

1. One coat stucco

2. Brown coat

3. Stucco

4. CMU/poured-in-place and/or tilt-up concrete/masonry

5. Approved Omega base coats and/or cementitious finishes

Fake stucco paint.

The house I did today was covered with that crap.

I was once told they freeze old tires using liquid oxygen or nitrogen or something like that and then pulverize the frozen tires to get the texture material for that stuff. It's then mixed with the equivalent of garage floor/porch paint and applied over the wood siding. It tends to peel off in large patches whenever the wood beneath it gets damp.

Have no idea whether the frozen tire story is true. Back in 2001 during the one year non-compete I did rescuing bungalows in Seattle we stripped all of the T1-11 siding off a really ugly electric blue 1923 Bungalow that some Numbnuts had stripped the original claps off of, installed the T1-11 and then coated the T1-11 with that crap.

Jacked the porch overhang up about 4-inches to get it level again, installed some full-span LVL beams under the second level to keep things straight and then replaced the posts at the front corners. Resurfaced the porch in period authentic douglas-fir T & G and re-clad the whole thing in Hardiplank and replicated all of the trim details found in an old 1933 tax assessor photograph. Went from the ugliest house within half a mile to the best looking house on the block.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
