Congratulations on your decision to paint! Exterior Painting is one of the fastest, easiest ways to add real value to your home. A good paint job does more than just add color. It can affect your mood and productivity and even lower your utility bills! Quality materials and proper technique are critical to achieving a durable, cleanable, and easy-to-maintain finish. This is true even if you are putting on the same color as before. Keep in mind, using paint of a good quality can even make a surface more abrasion-resistant, easier to clean and capable of washing without the risk of removing the paint.
Non-structural cracks will always occur on masonry surfaces. They can either have a random distribution or occur in large numbers. These cracks can range from hairline to 1/4 inch wide. Caulk can be effective on small tight cracks, but will fail when applied to large cracks with a lot of movement. A better alternative is to use a brush grade elastomeric sealant to help blend into the surrounding surface.
