How Often Should I Repaint My Stucco?

This is a good question and unfortunately there is no clear answer. We usually recommend that people have their stucco repainted every 5-10 years or at least inspected to see if there is any chipping, fading, etc. happening. One thing to keep in mind is that some walls might see much more exposure to the sunlight, rain, wind, etc. and might need more attention than other walls around your home. In Southern California for example, the walls that are exposed to the South will usually get battered by the elements and will have most of the issues, while the walls facing North will sometimes seem untouched. Elastomeric paints from manufacturers like Sherwin-Williams are also available for direct application over stucco. These elastomeric paints cover minor stucco cracking, allow the stucco to “breath, and offer a significantly longer time between the need to repaint your stucco. They are “tintable” and resist efflorescence. How Often Should I Repaint My Stucco? Local San Diego House Painters Wnen you’re ready to paint your stucco, don’t do it alone!

I wondered why this question was asked, seeing as how it seems to be a simple answer (YES!), but there are a few things to take into account, so it is a deeper question than it appears to be on the surface. Special elastomeric paints designed to be applied over stucco are available, and are highly recommended for painting over stucco (previously painted or not). Yes, you can paint over already painted stucco and it is usually easier than painting over a non painted stucco finish. You do not need primer, in most cases either, and the paint will usually last for quite a while before needing another coat. There are some advantages to repainting an already painted stucco finish but the prep work is usually the same. Pressure washing the stucco first is the best kind of prep work you can do and will increase the chances of the new paint sticking to the stucco or the old paint. If you have any patches to address on your stucco, then …
