Exterior Painting Calgary | If you have a stucco house and want it to look fresh again. Painting the stucco is something you may want to look into. However, there is quite a bit to consider when painting your stucco.

There are some tips and tricks that you could implement to make the job easier and make it look like a professional did it. Here are some of the things to consider.

Do you need stucco repair?

Exterior Painting Calgary | Most importantly choosing your paint

Exterior Painting Calgary | In order to get the finish, look, durability, and breathability you want for your stucco you will need the right paint for your home. We recommend a paint that will allow your home or business to breath. Full elastomeric does not allow your home to breath properly, neither do rubberized coatings. We recommend a matt finish paint with good breathability this will help your stucco, not weather or trap in moisture as it allows for evaporation. A matt finish paint will also keep the stucco looking more natural as stucco has a very dull finish. We also recommend that you research the UV protection in your paint. Many paints do not last under the suns UV rays, a good paint will have proper protection from this. With some research and proper paint your home will look good for years to come.

Advantages and disadvantages and other things that you need to know before making a final decision.

Stucco Repair

Does your home need Stucco, Siding, and Parging Repair? Take a look at the stucco on your home or business and assess if that is a job you can do or do you need to hire out for? Sometimes a good paintable acrylic calking can help bridge gaps and clean up the cracks before painting. If it is a more serious stucco repair with larger areas falling off, wire showing, or even envelope deterioration these might be a job for a professional. 

Surface Preparation

How Clean is the Surface Is the stucco that is currently on the house painted or not? It really doesn’t make too much of a difference, both scenarios will require a good pressure washing (2,800 – 3,100 psi) to get rid of all of the loose paint and material that may prevent the paint from sticking to the walls. Sometimes the addition of a cleaner such as TSP may be needed. 

Product knowledge

What type of surface you have will change the way your application is completed, the product you use, and durability. Example: Stucco must have a breathable or vapour permeable coating. This eliminates paints that have a rubberized coating like elastomeric. If you have an acrylic stucco, rolling the stucco with a heavier nap roller is recommended. If you have a conventional stucco, spray painting your stucco would be the recommended, with brush and or roller touchups. Brick would be sprayed with a back roll. And different applications for different types of sidings. Sometimes a primer would be advised depending on the colour or surface.

Weather conditions and Temperatures

Weather Permitting: Be sure that you will have a period of good weather when you paint or plan on painting, water can break down the durability of the paint or cause other issues. Some paint products can be applied and lower temperatures, and higher temperatures than others. Product knowledge is key!  


How Will You Reach: If you have a single-story house or building you are painting, then a simple step ladder and/or extension ladder will probably be more than enough to reach the highest walls.

Measure Your Walls: In order to buy the correct amount of paint, you will need to measure your walls, so you can buy the correct amount of paint. I would add 25% to this because stucco tends to suck up paint and you almost always end up using more than you anticipated. As with many things in the last couple of years, a paint shortage has been in effect for a while!
