How long does exterior paint last on a stucco home?

Stucco is arguably the most-popular home exterior here in Phoenix. It’s a perfect match for our desert environment and the aesthetics of many neighborhoods. Plus, it has other benefits, such as requiring less maintenance than many other exterior types. Yet, stucco requires special attention when paint is applied, which is why you should trust the professionals at Crash of Rhinos with painting your stucco home.

When it comes to your stucco home, the right paint process matters

When done right, a professional paint job on your stucco home should last 7-10 years. However, there’s a lot that influences what ends up being “right” for stucco, and not every painting company puts the time into prep work and quality paint the way that we do!

When you’re looking at quotes for your stucco home painting, be sure to ask about the following:

  • The quality of the paint used
  • The prep process and if stucco repair is offered
  • How the paint accounts for sunlight exposure and UV radiation
  • How the paint and process impacts the lifespan
  • The warranty offered on the painting work

Prep work has an outsized impact on stucco painting jobs. Before painting, all issues with the home’s exterior should be repaired or treated. This includes the presence of insects, mold, cracks, or damage. Acrylic caulk can be used to fill cracks and stucco patching is used to repair larger areas.

Our work is backed by our 7-year warranty

A painting company’s warranty is a general indicator of their work’s quality. After all, the state minimum is two years, so many painters who don’t take the time to do things right or don’t use the right paint will often stick close to that floor. Crash of Rhinos is different. We back our work with a 7-year warranty because we’re that confident in our paint, in our painters, and in our prep process.

Crash of Rhinos only does stucco. That means we specialize in treating the exterior prior to applying paint. This leads to a longer-lasting paint that can better stand up to the elements here in the Valley, ranging from harsh UV rays in June to rain in December.
