How Often Will Paint Last On My Sacramento Area Stucco Home?

 How Often Will Paint Last On My Sacramento Area Stucco Home?

One of the most common questions we get is: How often do we need to paint our home? While there are lots of variables that go into the answer, the material of the home is a big factor. Wood vs stucco, stucco will last significantly longer than wood. In the Sacramento region, we tell people they should expect to paint their exterior every 10 years. With stucco homes, there is also wood trim that needs to be painted. We advise painting the wood trim every 10 years on a stucco home, and the stucco paint should actually last roughly 20 years. If you have a dark color, fading will occur and you may need to do the wood trim and stucco at 10 years.

Other questions we get regarding stucco:

Are cracks normal? Yes, every home shifts and cracks, some are small and others are larger. Smaller ones can be treated with caulking, while some larger cracks need stucco patching.

What kind of paint is used? Elastomeric paint is the most common as it helps with hairline cracking and expands and contracts with movement. Elastomeric paints do fade more than normal acrylic paint, and should not be used when doing dark colors.

My stucco has never been painted, does it really need painting? Stucco can have the color mixed into it, and it can last many years without painting. At some point, all stucco should be painted. You may be tired of the color, it has been stained, has lots of cracks, or has become brittle.

If you have questions about painting your stucco home in Yolo, Solano, or Sacramento counties, please give us a call - we would be happy to help!

Brooks Panting Inc. just finished painting the exterior of our house. The crew did a terrific job. The house is a mid century modern with redwood paneling and an unusual amount of trim work. The Brooks crew was efficient, the quality of the painting was exceptional and the work was completed on time! Because of the age of the house several panels needed to be replaced. Brooks had the expertise to closely match the new paneling with the old paneling. I would not hesitate to recommend this company. They are professionals!

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

Consummate professionals! We hired Brooks to repaint the exterior of our house, and they did a fantastic job. The paint looks wonderful, everyone was also on time, friendly, and respectful of our property. Exceptional communication through the entire process. I was worried about damage to the landscaping near the house (bad previous experience with another outfit), but they were all very understanding and the crew was super careful. Did what they said they would do with no weirdness, no smoking, no radio, and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. This picky customer is very happy!

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

The crew is as neat and reliable as the actual painting job and paint used. No boom boxes!! Cordial staff spoke English. The crew got along with each other and worked as a team. The actual finish is / was beautiful. We would like to use Brooks again!

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.
