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 scrape 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?
