3 Tips for Stucco Repair and Painting

Stucco is a common exterior material for homes in the Lake Apopka area––for good reason, too! The surface offers protection from weather conditions. The surface is also very aesthetically pleasing and comes in a wide variety of colors. It truly is hard to go wrong with stucco. While the surface is durable, it is not indestructible. There comes a time for every homeowner with a stucco exterior to take on the project of stucco repair and repaint. In this article, our stucco professionals have lined out three tips for getting the best stucco finish possible. Let’s get started!

#1 Fix What Issues You Can

Our most important tip actually pertains to what you can do before the paint even arrives. The first thing you’ll want to do is take a good look at what state your stucco is in. Are there any patches or cracks? Is there any peeling going on? Take inventory of everything that isn’t in tip-top shape. You’ll want to repair these before slathering on paint. Otherwise, water will enter your home and lead to more expensive problems.

Once your exterior is repaired, enough for a paint job, it is time to bring out the pressure washer. If you did any patching to your surface, you may need to wait 15-30 days before completing this step. Otherwise, you’re good to go. A thorough pressure wash will help the paint adhere to the stucco and fend off maintenance down the road. If you’re going to hire the professionals, they can complete both of these steps for you.

#2 Know When It’s Time to Replace

While it is always best to take care of these issues as soon as you notice them, we know this can’t always be the case. If your stucco exterior is damaged to a point that it needs to be replaced, don’t worry! There are professionals out there that can take care of this for you in no time. The best companies will also provide a warranty with their work, so you don’t have to worry about repairing any of the above issues for three to seven years!

#3 Choose the Best Colors for Your Home

As everyone knows, tan is the most common color for stucco exterior. However, the best color for your home may not be one you see on your everyday street. These uncommon colors, however, are quickly rising to popularity and astronomically increasing home value. The most important aspect of any stucco painting project is choosing a color that fits your home. To make this decision easier, CertaPro Painters® has designated color consultants ready to help you with any painting project. These color professionals will take your specific project into consideration and assess what colors would look best on your home.
