Why Should You Paint Your Stucco Home?
We are all too familiar with the homes in Thousand Oaks, CA. Stucco Homes are one of the most popular exterior finishes in the area, as it’s low maintenance and can last for years when taken care of. If you have a stucco home, you’re probably asking yourself if your stucco home needs to be painted. While there are no requirements to paint your home, there are several benefits for painting stucco.
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.
