Looking for stucco painters in Edmonton?
When it comes to painting stucco, we prefer to paint with exterior flat latex or stucco coat, one full coat followed by another full coat 3 or 4 hours later. Which is my understanding of what two coats of paint means?
Some of the other painting companies out there like to use Elastomeric Coatings which when applied properly by your stucco painter is a good system.
We are consistently rated one of the top three painting companies in Edmonton. We take pride in our work and it shows. Call us today for a free estimate!

THE BENEFITS OF STUCCO PAINTING
If your home is looking lackluster, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders to transform your abode. Or perhaps you have a commercial building that looks a bit outdated. With a paint job from Painters Edmonton, you can update the look of your building, impressing clients and employees alike. You can also “rebrand” the look of your building with a color scheme that matches your business logo and brand colors. If you’re not content with the look of your building at the moment, then you’ll be surprised at how effective a coat of paint can prove to be.
Better Building Protection
Stucco is an incredibly hard, durable, and cost-effective building material. It is often used to cover unattractive structural elements such as metal, concrete, cinder blocks, and clay bricks. That said, it’s not impervious to damage and weathering, and the paint on its surface provides added protection against the elements. If you have stucco on the exterior of your home or commercial building, it is especially important to make sure it is taken care of regularly. Your stucco will require upkeep and a fresh coat of color and coating from time to time in order to ensure its longevity. Depending on the conditions at your building, you should paint your stucco every five to 10 years, at the very least, to ensure that the stucco remains protected. Also, keep an eye out for signs that your stucco requires painting right away, including all of the following signs:
Chipped or peeling paint: If you notice that your building has paint that’s peeling off or chipping away, then your paint isn’t performing as it should. It may have been poorly mixed, poorly applied, or it may have simply been a poor quality paint. Regardless, it’s time to paint over those surfaces, before further damage can occur.
Exposed stucco: Your stucco shouldn’t be exposed, since it will weather faster from UV exposure, rain, snow, and wind. If you notice raw, exposed, tan or grey stucco, then it’s time to paint your surfaces.
A “spongy” surface: Your stucco shouldn’t have tiny holes pocked across the surface. Instead, it should be well-sealed to keep the elements out. If you notice that your stucco surface looks spongy, or covered with small holes, then it’s time for a paint job.
Stucco damage: If your stucco surface is damaged, then you’ll have to perform repairs and then repaint the surface to ensure that it is fully protected. Fortunately, here at Royal Painters Edmonton, we provide both stucco painting and stucco repair services, so that we can ensure that your building is looking its best and its walls are performing their best. We provide repairs around windows and trim, crack repairs, chip repairs, you name it. And once your building is whole again, we’ll get to work applying a fresh coat of paint for added protection.
Discoloration: Discoloration is a sign that your paint is aging, poor quality, or over-exposed to UV rays and weathering. When you notice that your paint is discolored, it’s a sign that your building is due for a paint job. We can revitalize the look of your building, or update your building with an entirely new color.
Color matching: If you’ve had repairs performed, or your previous paint job turned out splotchy and mismatched, we can color match your current paint, and paint any mismatched surfaces, so that your building looks good across all of its exterior surfaces.
A fresh coat of paint looks great, and it adds value to your building. That can be especially helpful for homeowners or building owners who plan on placing their property on the market in the near future. Painting your stucco home will add curb appeal to your abode, and it will increase the overall price tag of your house, should you choose to sell it. The same goes for commercial building owners. You can earn more money from your investment with a fresh coat of paint. Plus, if you’re striving to attract clients or even new tenants to rent your building, a paint job may just do the trick.
How often should I paint my stucco surfaces?
We recommend that homeowners and building owners have their stucco surfaces painted at least once every decade, although, if you mention any signs that your stucco is enduring damage (which are listed in the section above), then it’s time to paint your building right away. You can always paint your building if you’d simply like to change its color and aesthetic, as well.
Can I paint my stucco myself?
While it’s possible to paint your stucco surfaces yourself, we advise against it. First of all, exterior painting can be dangerous, especially if you have a multi-story building. If you’re uncomfortable on a ladder or scaffolding, then its best that you leave your project to the pros. Also, you should be mindful that if you make a mistake, it could be costly. You could end up dropping a bucket of paint onto a car that’s sitting in your driveway, for instance, and you’ll have to pay for that accident yourself. Hire a painting company that is insured against such accidents, so that you can rest assured your property will remain protected. Turning your stucco painting project into a DIY project may be a bad idea, simply because you don’t have the right tools for the job. That means that you could waste hours of time painting your building, while still ending up with a poor paint job. That’s just our two cents on the matter.
