Painting stucco exterior

sierraeast
16 years ago

Out here in the mojave desert, the majority of exteriors are stucco, or combinations of stucco, sidings,brick/stone veneer, but predominately stucco.I was told by another that painting the newer stucco's the paint will peel and fail. I know on older exterior plastering before stucco,(hardcoating), paint was the final finish coat.Im asking this for a friend who has a heavy textured stucco exterior. To scrape the existing texture down and re-color coat is pretty involved effort as well as a hefty expense.I have seen it done on a few residenses,(painting), but it's not real common practice. Looking for some more opinions/advise on this.Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Mark
