Let Us Take The ‘Pain’ Out Of Painting
Stucco painting is a beautiful external finishing touch, although over time the weather and aging can make it appear a little worn out. When compared to other siding options, stucco is cheaper, has a long lifespan, and improves the appearance of your home. For assistance, consult our comprehensive guide to painting stucco. Alberta Painting has the best Edmonton painters who can understand the importance of painting stucco and delivering excellent services.
Get the right painting done
Elastomeric paint is the suggested paint for stucco. This heavy-duty acrylic paint applies substantially thicker than regular acrylic paint. Thick paint provides greater flexibility to span minor fractures and gaps and penetrates the plaster texture more efficiently. By preventing moisture intrusion, this helps prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and decay. The greatest elastomeric paints are vapor permeable as well as water-repellent, allowing the building to “breathe” and preventing blisters from forming beneath the paint due to trapped water vapor. Our company has a team of experienced painters who are skilled in handling these types of painting.
Prepare the Stucco
Like any surface, the finish lasts longer when it is properly prepared before painting. To begin with, if your stucco painting is fresh, give it 60 days to settle and dry before painting. After that, pressure-wash the stucco to get rid of debris, chalky buildup, and paint chips. Observe recommended pressure washing procedures. Our professional team use pressure washers for detail-oriented high-end projects. While the stucco is drying, we carefully inspect each area for cracks. We typically fill small cracks elastomeric paint, and larger cracks with a patching solution so that the edge of a credit card can be inserted. In order to improve the likelihood of the patches matching the texture of the surrounding stucco, you need our help. Our expert team is always there to guide you throughout the entire process.
When painting stucco, you have two choices: roller or sprayer. Although most of us are familiar with rollers, they must have a very thin nap in order to penetrate the strongly textured plaster and uniformly apply paint. Remember that you will need access to every region of the stucco if you decide to apply it using rollers, including possibly higher areas that call for longer poles and ladders. Rather, the best choice is to spray. It takes less time, uses less paint, and produces a better finish. To prevent any potential problems, it is better to plan things out beforehand with our professionals.
