Stucco Repairs and Painting for Renewing Your Home

Stucco homes have a beautiful finish that can’t be denied. This strong material that looks like cement has been used as home siding for hundreds of years and can last for more than 50 years if it is taken care of. The people at CMB Wayne Stucco & EIFS know that painting and fixing your stucco can help keep it in good shape and make it stand out.

Benefits of Painting and Fixing Stucco

It keeps moisture out.

When stucco isn’t painted, it soaks up water. So, it needs to be painted every so often, especially in places that get a lot of rain and snow. When you paint stucco, the paint seals the surface so that water can’t get in. This will give your house a uniform color and protect it from the weather. If you fix any cracks or other problems, water won’t be able to get inside and damage your walls.

It Hides Spots

When water runs off your roof, gutters, and windows, it can leave streaks and rust stains on the stucco that make your home look less attractive. With the right preparation and painting, you can get rid of or cover up these stains, and they won’t come back for years.

It fixes tiny holes and cracks.

Using high-quality paint made for stucco can help seal tiny cracks and keep the surface of your home from getting worse. Professional painters and repairmen use special caulking and masonry materials to fill cracks and replace pieces of stucco that have fallen off. Once the job is done, these flaws will be so well hidden that you won’t even know they were there.

It helps protect against UV rays.

UV rays can damage any surface outside and cause cracks and other damage. Depending on what color you paint your stucco, it can protect your home from UV rays and even keep it cooler.

It adds to the curb appeal

By painting and fixing your stucco, you can keep your house looking great and protect it for many years. When it comes to picking paint colors, there are a lot of options that let you show off your own style.

Even if you don’t plan to sell your house, making the outside and inside look nicer will make it more fun to be there. Painted stucco gives a home a clean, classic look that guests, neighbors, and potential buyers will like. Then, if you take care of your stucco, it can add value to your home when you want to sell it.

Why you should hire a professional to paint and fix stucco

Painting stucco isn’t a good do-it-yourself project because it requires tools, materials, and skills that most people don’t have. If you want your stucco painting project to look great and be done right, it’s best to leave it to professionals who have worked with stucco before.

Professionals can also fix cracked or damaged stucco and get rid of discoloration, chips, and other flaws. Some of these problems not only make your house look bad from the outside, but they can also affect how well it is built. Every five to ten years, stucco should be painted to keep the outside of your house in good shape.
