Professional Stucco Repair & Painting in Loudoun, VA

Stucco is an extremely common type of exterior finish for residences within our service area. As time passes and the elements take their toll, it’s not uncommon for stucco to exhibit signs of wear, such as fading or cracking. Should you detect any cracks exceeding 1/8″ in width, protrusions in the walls, or a powdery residue known as chalking, it may signal the need for surface repairs and a fresh coat of paint. Many homeowners enlist our services not only for painting but also for addressing any necessary repairs to their stucco exteriors.

One prevalent issue we encounter locally involves lawn sprinkler systems inadvertently contributing to color fading by dousing the sides of homes when they are activated. Our team of professionals possess the expertise to rectify water-induced damage to stucco in most instances.

Advantages for Painting Stucco

  • Seals out Moisture – Stucco is porous and absorbs a lot of water, which makes Stucco homes so popular in drier climates. However, in the off-chance that it does rain in California, it’s great to have your home already prepped for these weather elements.
  • Filling the Cracks – Stucco is prone to cracking, which doesn’t suit an earthquake-prominent environment. Painting your home with high-quality, thick paint can fill in thin cracks. However, it’s important to note that with bigger cracks, these will need to caulked or patched. We do offer repair services for stucco as well.
  • Resists UV Rays – Just like most materials, sun damage can take a toll on your exterior. Painting your stucco helps keeps your exterior properly insulated, especially if you choose a light color that will reflect sunlight.
  • Covers Stains – Stucco is also know for staining, and painting stucco is a great way to cover these stains!

When painted by professionals, we can ensure that your stucco exterior will last. Ideally, stucco should be painted every 5 to 10 years. With our team of skilled, meticulous painters, we will provide you with successful results to keep your house looking fresh for years to come.
