We often get asked, “Is it okay to paint stucco homes?” The answer is, yes! You can paint a stucco home but it takes some TLC. The exterior will need to be scraped, cleaned and perfectly primed.
We recently had the opportunity to paint a stucco home in South Glens Falls. Here is the before picture:
And here is the after picture.
We are very pleased with how this project turned out! We painted this stucco home in traditional earth tones, using a dark blue hue from Sherwin Williams.
Before are a few common questions that we get about painting your stucco home.
Is it okay to paint my stucco house?
Yes! With proper preparation, the right paint, and correct painting materials, it is okay to paint your stucco home. Painting can offer many benefits including resisting UV Rays, provides better curb appeal, flexibility with paint color, etc.
What kind of paint do you use on a Stucco home?
We recommend using paint and primer from Sherwin Williams.
How often do you paint a stucco house?
Stucco is a very durable surface. The good news is that proper application of paint on stucco homes can last over 20 years without peeling if high-quality paint is used and completed by the right painting professionals.
How do you fixed cracks in stucco homes?
Cracks in stucco homes can be fixed with paint. If left untouched, the damage will only become a bigger problem over time. When left unpainted, chunks of stucco will appear and the repairs can be costly. Painting your home with high-quality thick paint can fill these cracks naturally.
