Stucco Painting and Repair

Homes with stucco exteriors may believe that stucco is better than other siding materials. However, even stucco will need to be repainted occasionally to get a face-lift. Think of it as a makeover for your exterior walls. Stucco, which is a durable plaster-like material, does protect  your home from the elements, but eventually it could become worn out or cracked. Repairing and a fresh coat of paint can make all the difference in the world for your home’s curb appeal. The repair will do more than that, though, it also protects the surface from moisture, and could prevent leaks and mold. 

Custom Painting, Inc. is your go-to experts for stucco painting and repair services for residential properties. We do our best and take pride in transforming your home’s exterior. By using skill and creativity, our team specializes in giving your house an exciting makeover while safeguarding the durability of its stucco layer.

Our Services

We offer these two key services in this department. Let’s discuss Stucco Painting first. 

Stucco Painting

Stucco is a home exterior using cement to cover the substructure, creating a strong and durable surface. Stucco painting enhances and preserves the home’s exterior and can transcend mere aesthetics. This painting process is vital to improving the appearance but also adding to the  structural integrity of your residence.

Stucco has a porous nature which makes it susceptible to moisture. Once moisture is present, it can lead to cracks and discoloration. At Custom Painting, Inc., we use our expertise to safeguard against structural wear and tear. As a leading painting contractor in San Ramon, we offer the following as Stucco Painting services.

Premium Elastomeric Paints

Homeowners may consider elastomeric paint to be too expensive. However, choosing premium elastomeric paints is more than a preference—it’s a calculated decision based on understanding stucco’s behavior. The specialized paints function as flexible armor. They are carefully formulated to not only cover the stucco but also adapt to how stucco naturally expands and contracts. This paint is not just a fresh coat; it’s a resilient shield providing a crack-resistant surface that is crafted to endure the elements and the passage of time.

Color Palette

The process of choosing colors goes beyond mere aesthetic considerations. The painting companies we work with have a wide color palette with colors curated from neutrals to vibrant tones. The paint we use undergoes a rigorous examination to consider more than mere visual appeal. We consider each for the impact it has on stucco’s thermal dynamics. 

The art of selecting colors is intricately intertwined with individual style choices. This creates a perfect balance that not only pleases the visual senses but also enhances the character of your home.

Consider, for instance, the dilemma of choosing between a bold, deep blue and a gentle, sandy beige for your home’s exterior. You may love the deep blue color for its aesthetic allure. However, our specialists will help you navigate through the practical aspects of color selection. Lighter hues, like sandy beige, have the advantage of absorbing less heat, which can contribute to a cooler home and potentially lower energy costs. In this instance choosing sandy beige goes beyond its visual attractiveness; it’s also a logical decision for an energy-efficient home.

Application Mastery

Since we offer top-rated stucco painting and repair services in San Ramon, we are committed to using industry-leading techniques to complete the work. This could be using precision spray application followed by meticulous back-rolling, thus surpassing the ordinary method of stucco. Our goal is not only to cover the surface; it’s about taking the time to penetrate every minute  crevice. By doing this, we are sure there is an even coat of paint covering the surface going  beyond how it looks to provide protection. 

Stucco Repair

If you have had your stucco painted in the past, but the job was not done well, you may be hesitant to have it painted again. If you hire Custom Painting, Inc., we’ll fix the stucco before we paint it to ensure you will be satisfied with the results. Here are the stucco repair services we offer.

Common Culprits: Cracks, Chips, and Water Damage

As a homeowner, it is vital to understand that certain elements can damage your stucco. 

  • Cracks: Whether microscopic or large, if you see cracks in your stucco, you know there is a constant battle going on against the elements. Cracks can form from thermal expansion, the foundation of the home settling, or subtle vibrations of your daily life leading to structural fissures. The best course of action is to address cracks as soon as you notice them to keep them from getting bigger.
  • Chips: Whether chips are from impacts to the surface, the age of the stucco, or improper installation, chipped stucco is not appealing. It mars the aesthetic appeal of your home and exposes the vulnerable inner layers to further damage. Again, you want to address these as soon as possible to keep your home looking good and keeping it safe.
  • Water Damage: Stucco is a porous surface which is great breathability, but it can make your home susceptible to water infiltration. As time passes, water infiltration can lead to discoloration of the stucco, mold growth, and structural compromise.

The Repair Process

It is important for us in the repair process to make sure the stucco looks new. We will ensure you cannot see any damage. To accomplish this result, we follow this step-by-step process.

  • Clean: Before we begin painting the stucco, we start by thoroughly cleaning it from top to bottom. We take our time pressure washing the structure to remove dirt, grime, mold, mildew, or any loose particles. Cleaning the entire surface lays the foundation moving to the next step for a seamless repair.
  • Patch: After the surface has dried, we begin addressing any cracks and chips we found. This is more than a cosmetic cover-up. We go to the core and apply high-quality stucco patching compound. Some may consider this patching compound to be a mere band-aid, but it is so much more. It is more akin to surgical repair that guarantees structural soundness.
  • Match Texture: We understand that stucco is more than a color. Texture is also important. Our team use their keen eyes and trained hands to recreate the texture of your stucco. We ensure the repair blends in seamlessly by matching the existing pattern from float to dash.

Why Timely Repairs are Important?

As we’ve stated above, it is vital that stucco repairs are made whenever damage is noticed. If you neglect a small crack today, it could lead to water infiltrating the surface tomorrow. You may not notice the moisture, but it could lead to more severe structural damage over time. Repairs are not only about how your home looks, making repairs is vital for protecting your home against further damage which could have been avoided.

We are committed to precision when completing stucco painting and repair services on any structure. We know that you depend on your stucco to protect your home, and we understand that once the stucco is marred, it will need meticulous detailed work to return it to its original state.

With experience and expertise, we use our technical abilities to meet the artistry of restoration to provide the best results. Custom Painting, Inc., does not simply repair stucco; we do everything carefully to preserve your home’s exterior.
