Getting Your Stucco Exterior PaintedFind the right painting pro. The first step in getting your stucco exterior painted is choosing a professional painter. Look for one who has good reviews and who is licensed and insured. As with any pro you hire, you’ll want your painter to communicate clearly and be someone you feel comfortable working with. It’s a good idea to speak with two or three painters before you decide whom to hire. Before work starts. It’s typical for painters to come to a home for a free consultation and to offer a cost estimate for painting a home’s stucco exterior. A good painter will also be able to spot any portions of your stucco in need of repair, and to determine whether they will be something he or she will tackle, or whether problem areas should be addressed by a stucco specialist. Your painter should provide you with a contract that makes clear what work is to be done, how much it will cost and how and when your payments will be due. Additionally, you’ll want to know the cancellation terms, meaning what would happen if you’d have to cancel the job. Last, you’ll want to know how long the painter warranties the work. Before work begins, you should take down lights or other decor attached to the home. Also trim any bushes or branches that are brushing the stucco exterior or close to it. Move any planters or plants that would prevent the painters from accessing the home. Be sure to close your windows and keep pets inside when the job is scheduled to begin.
