After priming has been accomplished, removing old caulking is necessary that is showing separation on one edge if not both. If new caulk is covered up over old, which is showing separation, new long term caulk will not last near the warranty either. Best to use a razor knife, cutting old caulk out. Using a wet or damp cloth wiping new caulk bead, smooths edge, giving a nice transition at 90 degree angles from wood trim to siding.

The price we charged for painting the stucco wall around the back of the house was $1700. The approximate square footage of the wall was 3000. The cost per square foot was $0.56. This was a brand new stucco that was applied to the wall just a couple of month ago and the wall did not need any repairs at all. The above price included pressure washing, masking, priming and painting. Since painting of the perimeter walls usually requires very little in terms of the prep work, that is the reason for low per square foot price.
First, we worked to remove all wallpaper throughout the house. There was a wallpaper border in a couple rooms, so it wasn’t too big of a deal taking it off. I basically scored the paper, wet it, then scraped it off. We did a more in-depth post last year. The main thing to keep in mind when removing wallpaper is to score well, then soak soak soak. The longer you let the paper soak up the removal spray or water, the easier it will peel off! Don’t paint over the wallpaper. Like most short cuts in home repair, it will lead to more problems down the road. Which I ran into in this house. In the dining room, I was removing the wallpaper when I realized somebody had previously painted over wallpaper. In the entire room! Which leads me to the second thing we did.

Another great tutorial. You guys really put out some great and helpful posts. I was especially happy to see that you kept the popcorn ceiling! I feel like there is so much pressure to get rid of your popcorn ceiling if you have it, but it is so expensive especially if you have asbestos. It is really such a minor thing I don’t think it should get as much flak as it does. Besides, I am convinced if I wait long enough, the popcorn ceilings will make a comeback;)
