I have a 1200 sq foot 3 bedroom home, 15' high roofline, a-frame with brick veneer and clapboard on 2 sides.
Problem is eaves need a lot of prep work- paint is peeling, chipping, cracking or down to bare wood in some places.
Simple scraping and light sanding for prep work will not cut it on the eaves- will wind up with uneven patches. So what kind of prep work for the eaves is needed? Mechanically sc**** down to the bare wood? Paint remover?
What level of additional prep work should be bargained for on the eaves- written down in the contract?
What else should be agree to or specified in the contract (exact brand of paint? # coats?) to get a good job?
