Tan Elastomeric Masonry, Stucco and Brick Paint from the 70's. Recoating compatibility?

I have Tan Elastomeric Masonry, Stucco and Brick Paint from the 70's on my Baselite Block Home.  What are the options for matching color for repairs and compatiblity of materials for painting over the original material?  I would apreciate tips on surface preparation.  As you can imagine a surface like stucco is hard to deal with beyond pressure washing.  Thank you.

Hello wkrause2!

 

I am not familiar with Baselight Block, however if your original coating was Masonry, Stucco, and Brick Paint, then the current version of that product should work well.

 

Today, Behr Masonry, Stucco and Brick Paint has the following properties:

1) Self-priming;

2) Mildew resistant;

3) Remains flexible and can bridge hairline cracks;

4) Stretches up to 600 percent;

5) Withstands 98-mph wind-driven rain; and

6) Cleans up with soap and water.

 

Quite a list of features at a very reasonable price!

 

Clean your existing surface with Mold Armor House Wash.

 

Rinse with a garden hose after 10-minutes.

 

Then allow to dry 5-6 hours.

 

Use Elastomeric Caulk or pre-mixed stucco patch to repair surface blemishes.

 

Then paint.

 

You can spray, brush, or roll.

 

NOTE:

Expect to cover approximately 125-square feet of surface per gallon.
