Professional Stucco Repair & Painting in Tysons,VA

Stucco is a popular choice for the outside of homes in our area. Over time, it can start to show signs of wear like fading or cracking due to weather exposure. If you notice cracks wider than 1/8″, bulges in the walls, or a powdery residue called chalking, it might be time for repairs and a fresh coat of paint. Many homeowners trust us not just for painting but also for fixing any issues with their stucco exteriors.

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.
