Stucco

bkrerin78August 14, 2012

I live in a home that has a stucco exterior. The home is 12 years old. Recently a debate has occurred among the neighbors as to weather you should or should not paint stucco. I would love an opinion on the power wash vs painting of stucco. Thanks!

You can pressure wash stucco using a low-power nozzle. It is important to seal & repair any cracks BEFORE pressure washing. You should not have to paint.

You can definitely paint stucco with elastomeric paint as it is breathable. Sto Corp out of PA sells this type of paint.
