My house exterior walls are cement - how do I prep it before painting? Here's some photos. I'm thinking maybe a pressure washer but would prefer an easier, less messy alternative if available. I read up on some websites but the info conflicted. But I did read about using KRUD KUTTER KK32 instead of trisodium phosphate??? My goal is to do it right, do it once so it will last as long as possible. I'm thinking of using KRUD KUTTER KK32 to be neighbor friendly (due to over-spray???)
- Do I power wash the paint off, then use the KRUD KUTTER KK32 and then paint or can I skip the KRUD KUTTER KK32?
- any technique for catching the paint to make cleanup easier?
- What paint type is best to use (for a flat finish - white or brown; not sure yet). I've read about using enamel, oil and latex
