Paint manufacturors/formulations for exterior stucco
We plan to have the exterior stucco walls (and wood trim & doors) painted later this spring. I'm interested in suggestions on which manufacturers' paints to consider. Ditto on formulations. Related question: is it necessary to use special paints for the stucco? Or will any high-quality exterior paint suffice?
Given the difficulty of accessing some of the second floor- and attic-height areas of the house, we want to use the "best" (ie, longest-wearing) paint we can find in our area -- or at least, an excellent, high-quality paint. Those areas are not ones we'd be comfortable doing ourselves, and, any time they'd have to be redone, they would require scaffolding and, possibly, very long extension ladders.
Thanks in advance, everyone, for your thoughts & ideas.
