We live in a home with a weathered, peeling, lumpy, many-textured, oft-repaired stucco exterior. While looking for someone to completely redo it, we have encountered stucco folks who have bid to power wash, coat and stucco our place. But two of them recommended sandblasting first, taking it down to concrete before re-stucco. This is more expensive, but supposedly more likely to last for many years without peeling, cracking, etc.
Does anyone know if this is true? Worth it? We are flummoxed!
Thanks for your help!!!
