Stucco acrylic finishing over an existing stucco finish
Hello, in this video, we are going over an old tired, beat-up, stained cementitious color coat finish applied over a retaining wall.
In this video were are spreading a stucco acrylic finish.
Keep in mind the first necessary thing.
Pressure washing with at least 3500 PSI to remove all the dust, dirt, and grime.
Note: after the wall is immaculate, “this means absolutely, No dust, dirt, grime or moss.”
FYI, all stucco acrylic comes with their unique primer. The wall must now be primed; then, you are ready to apply the stucco acrylic finish coat.
What is an Acrylic color fining that’s used for resurfacing stucco walls,
Good question. It’s like rubber mixed with sand and color pigments.
Remember that acrylic stucco sticks to everything, so you must cover the ground well; however, no stucco acrylic stucco will adhere to a dusty surface, at least not forever.
I mention this often as I get many calls saying, Kirk, the plastering company who applied my stucco finish less than a year ago, it’s now coming off, help. There is a lot of prep work involved in acrylic refinishing over stucco walls.
Allow this video to be your guild.
Images and how to apply acrylic exterior stuccoes.
In this video, we are demonstrating and explaining how to apply acrylic stucco applied by hand. These are maintenance-free colored finishes over an existing stuccoed retaining wall.
In this video, we do make it appear much easier than it is. Why?
We were going over a light dash that uses twice the Acrylic stucco.
Not only does this application require extreme troweling on pressure, but as I was floating, I had to push as hard as I could to fill all the void with this glue-like acrylic because the existing finish was a heavy dash finish.
At the end of this video, my wrist and forearms were tight as a drum and a bit tired, which is indeed rare.
My daughter Madeline had to use both hands towards the end of this wall as the strength needed was a bit too much as she has been in Spain teaching English for the last year and lost some wrist strength.
Use it or lose it, we used to have fun here, plus the owner was a super friendly fellow.
The advantages or benefits of spreading an acrylic stucco finish coat color.
They are fifty to seventy times thicker than paint. How else can any finish cover the existing stucco texture?
