ABOUT THIS PROJECT

ASSESSMENT:  David called from a flyer on his door. He recently purchased a beautiful home that was not well taken care of and had multiple needs. Upon the walk through estimate I noticed the home had the wrong sized smaller gutters for the large style tile roof. This was causing additional weathering on the stucco and soffits. Gutters are the single most important item to keep snow and water off the home and protect your stucco and paint job. There were multiple cracks in the stucco body and many small horizontal and vertical cracks proceeding out from and around many of the windows. There were some sun-spotting and fading spots ins some areas as the stucco was never coated or painted before. I noticed that the large stucco fence on the back of the property also had issues at the joints and seams and the top ledge was weathering due to the stucco layer being more thin and not thick enough. That issue caused large holes to develop throughout the top of the ledges from water and snow resting on it many years.

ADVISE: First Lime recommended replacing gutters with the proper larger 6 inch gutters and downspouts to allow proper water drainage and balance out the masculine look with the larger roof tiles. Second Lime thoroughly power washed, caulked, peel bond primed, and stucco patched all of the areas on the home that needed it. We focused additional prep by lightly caulking around th outside of the stucco windows to the wood trim itself due to the thinning stucco around the window seams. Lime also put a new stucco patch top coat over the top of the thin stucco ledge around the large fence in the back of the home. After all prep was finished, audit was performed by Ernesto, and we finished with a beautiful thick top coat of SW Duration Satin which is twice as thick as average paints on the market and will prolong life, repel water, and has a beautiful sheen that both repels water and reflects the sun and keeps the beautiful color in the paint.
