However, there are a few types of damage that can occur at stucco homes over time including cracking, staining, and color fading. Luckily, our local team of painters have the skill and experience you need to paint and repair your stucco home seamlessly in the Atlanta community.
How Our Painters Fix Stucco Damage
Repair: Cracks appear due to the gradual shifting of your building and the seasonal weather patterns. Cracking can also be caused by the improper fitting of lath and an incorrect mixture of stucco. We can repair all cracks to increase the stability of your home.
Replace: Sometimes, repair techniques are not enough to fix your stucco problem and your need for remediation. One of the most common problems with stucco siding is water damage. If it’s left untreated, there is a high risk that mold will develop. If the stucco is damaged, we assess the functional flaws and replace it.
Primer: The main reason you want to use primer on your stucco is that it covers the sites of your repairs, leaving a smooth finish. The last thing you want is for the stucco to absorb moisture from the coating. We seal the cured stucco with elastomeric/waterproof primer to create a uniform surface for applying a coating.
Paint: Apart from the fact that painting your stucco makes it look better, paint also helps protect the stucco from rain, pollution, and mold. It also helps to preserve stucco and prevent cracking and crumbling. We want you to enjoy your stucco for years to come. We apply a coat of waterproof paint which will expand and contract to provide superior protection.
