We recently spoke about the advantages and disadvantages of “Whitewashing Stucco.” However, another major option available to today’s homeowner is painting stucco over.
I wanted to briefly touch on the Pro’s and Con’s of painting over your stucco wall for the purpose of restoring the fresh look it once boasted.
As with anything else, I like to provide my opinions and information in order to give people a starting point on their research.
Stucco in general is known for its low maintenance requirements throughout its life. In fact, people estimate that Stucco can last up to 75 years. Of course, depending on the yearly maintenance you provide your stucco wall, you eventually may want to refresh your house’s look. It can also be as simple as just wanting to change colors.
Painting your stucco, although not generally the recommended course of action, is still an option to many homeowners, and here are just a few pro’s and con’s that I have come up with.

The Con’s of Painting Your Stucco Wall
In conclusion, although I personally believe that it is not a good idea to simply paint over your current stucco wall, it is an option to homeowners. In fact, depending on your specific situation it may be the best solution for some at the current moment. Hopefully the aforementioned pro’s and con’s will be a good starting point when making an informed decision.
