Why Should I Paint my Stucco Home?
Stucco is a natural fit for homes. The insulating material does well to keep out hot temperatures and insulate on cold winter nights. Most stucco homes can help cut costs by keeping your home well-insulated.
Beyond the practical nature of the material in hot, dry climates, stucco also provides a unique aesthetic. For homes built in this style, exterior stucco can be a great way to embrace the home’s architectural features.
Stucco is also fire-resistant. Homeowners get an extra level of security in dry climates that are prone to fires when they have stucco finishes.
Stucco Paint Colours
Luckily, stucco surfaces are so versatile and a large variety of colours looks good on stucco homes. The most commonly used shades are usually within the neutral colour scheme. Stucco painting in a shade of grey can make the home look more modern sophisticated. For a more traditional look, a pale blue painted on the stucco, or even a nice shade of beige is a great option. If you want to accomplish a southern-style desert home, terracotta stucco is the best colour to achieve the look.
Professional Stucco Painting and Repairs
Updating your home’s exterior painting palette requires much more attention and skill when you have a stucco finish. Exterior paint provides more than just a facelift for your home’s exterior. A well-applied paint project will help protect your stucco from rain, pollution, and mold. It also helps preserve the stucco by preventing cracking and crumbling.
