I have a block house that was built in 1978. It seems to have a white textured finish on it. On the front of the house, you can hardly see the block grout lines.
I need to paint the house. A few questions:
1. Best method to repair cracks in grout lines. Approx. 1/16-1/8 wide. I've heard to use a caulk, but have also heard to use morter.
2. What method can be used to re texture an area that has been repaired?
The surface texture, almost looks like a light "interior popcorn" finish.
3. What type paint is recommended? Oil, latex, acrylic? etc???
4. I will pressure wash, before painting, but need a recommendation for a primer, if needed. I'm not sure if the white coating on the blocks is paint or the white colored coating, that was applied to cover the grout joints.
