The terrace floor had cracks. Crack's were repaired and floor were painted with waterproof paint.
After

Cost of repairing and painting of three terrace walls: work and materials was $480. Repairing and painting of terrace floor and little brown tower - $600. The architect came over to do an estimate (free) and the next day he sent a laborer who did all these work under his supervision. 
After this work was done I asked the architect to arrange window washing, sealing in between outside window perch and the window with silicone and to paint outside window perch. I have living  room window, the biggest, two kitchen windows, hall window and bedrooms windows - total was $150. 
Viva Ecuador!
