Stucco is a versatile and durable product that has been used in many different areas of the country, including Florida, New York, and Los Angeles. It has been around for more than 100 years. However, enduring materials are not as durable as they used to be. Many homeowners wonder what they can do to change the stucco's exterior color. You can paint stucco.

 

How do I prepare stucco for paint?

 
The stucco must be cleaned from dirt and dust. A stiff bristle broom can be used to remove dirt and dust from stucco surfaces. However, if the stucco is very thick, a power washer may be necessary. To fill in small cracks in stucco, a caulking that is compatible with masonry can be used. To remove larger cracks and loose material, you can use a putty knife. The dry stucco repair product may then be mixed with water and used as directed on the packaging.
 
 
It is best to allow stucco to dry for at least 7-10 days before painting it. Instructions for stucco repair products include information about how long they should be left to cure.
 
 

What type of paint should I use for stucco?

 
Elastomeric paint is one of the most preferred products for exterior painting stucco homes. The clay-based product is flexible and waterproof. It is waterproof, so it won't absorb moisture. This could cause mold or rot in your home. Its flexibility allows it to expand and move with the material beneath, so that if there are any hairline cracks, the elastomeric painting will continue to cover them.
 
 
Elastomeric paint is also heat-resistant. Some insurance companies even offer a bonus or discount for using it on your home or business. To reflect the sun and keep your home cool, choose a lighter color.
 
 

Painting Techniques

 
Some homeowners prefer to seal and color their stucco differently. You can use a penetrating sealing agent with an additional colorant. Another option is to apply a thin coat of stucco on the surface with a colorant. If the house is new, these options are great.
 
 

How do I apply paint to stucco?

 
Spraying is the best method to paint stucco. Spraying is the preferred method of application because it is labor-intensive and can get paint in all crevasses.
 
 

Do I need to prime stucco before painting?

 
Your coating will perform better if it has a good primer that is resistant to alkali. It acts as an intermediary between stucco and the coating, keeping moisture from getting into the coating and causing stains.
