Stucco looks gorgeous, but its beauty requires upkeep that can be costly, particularly if it’s not addressed early. Once any significant cracks in stucco are repaired, elastomeric paint can be applied to a home exterior and eliminate future cracks. While some homeowners try to fill hairline cracks with multiple coats of paint, elastomeric paint works much better: it can actually bridge and repair non-structural hairline cracks in your stucco. It offers fabulous outcomes for homeowners, and it gives your stucco a beautiful, lasting finish that helps it avoid problems in the future.
At Approved Contractor, we understand the frustration a damaged home exterior can cause. We’ve developed a proven system and helped over 3,000 homeowners get a beautiful home exterior that endures the elements and stands the test of time. Stucco repair is something we like to remedy with elastomeric paint, also known as texture coating. Texture coating can help fortify your home exterior and save you money because you’ll never need to paint again.
The Nature of Elastomeric Paint
Elastomeric paint forms a barrier that shields your home against moisture. Its watertight seal works well, protecting stucco and other siding materials like brick and metal. It’s up to 10 times thicker than other exterior paint and is so strong that it far outlasts other exterior paint types. A unique part of its makeup is that it’s bendable; it is made up of stretchy material and when there are shifts or movement in a wall, it moves along with the wall. It’s a popular coating for both residential and commercial properties due to its durability and beauty.
The Benefits of Texture Coating for Your Home Exterior
When it comes to stucco siding, upkeep can be costly and continuous. With texture coating, you can stop painting your home exterior forever. It is not only extremely resilient, but also gives your home a permanent finish and more—UV resistance, water resistance, weather proofing, mold and mildew resistance, and heat reflectivity. Homeowners appreciate multiple things about texture coating:
- Enjoy low maintenance on your home exterior.
- Increase your home’s resale value.
- Get eye-catching curb appeal.
- Your home will look new for decades.
- Enjoy color that lasts.
- Get the premium benefits of a lifetime warranty on texture coating.
- Save money and never have to paint again.
- Weatherproof your home.
- Minimize or eliminate water damage, fungus, mold, and mildew.
When Home Exterior Products Are Well Made, They Deliver Outstanding Warranties
Texture coating gives you an exceptional warranty. It is known as a lifetime material guaranteed against peeling, chipping, flaking, and cracking for as long as you own your home. So you really can stop painting forever!
Proper Application for the Longevity of Texture Coating
Texture coating gives your home exterior maximum protection against the weather and beautifies your home for years to come. Our detailed installation process includes:
A thorough inspection is performed to check your home exterior for chipping, flaking, peeling paint, structural damage, pest infestation, or moisture damage such as wood rot, mold, or mildew.
This first step keeps the ground moisture from being absorbed into your walls.
We remove old paint and unpleasant stains from your home exterior.
Scraping and Sanding
We meticulously remove any leftover debris after hydro blasting to create a uniform surface on which to apply primer and paint.
Repair and Patch
We correct defects in your home exterior. If you have oversized fractures or holes in your dwelling, they need to be fixed before it is primed and the textured coating is applied.
We mask off your doors, sidewalks, windows, and shrubs to prevent the texture coating from marring their looks.
Elastomeric Primer Application
This important step eliminates water from penetrating through to your home. After the primer is applied to your home, it is meticulously inspected for uniform application before your textured coating is applied.
The waterproofing and longevity of texture coating on your home is impacted by the amount of primer you put under it. Unfortunately, many contractors use one gallon of primer for every 400 square feet of a home exterior. At Approved Contractor, we use one gallon of primer for every two square feet of your home exterior, ensuring you get the best protection for your home.
Lifetime Exterior Coating Application
After we apply the exterior coating, you really can stop painting forever. With this outstanding elastomeric paint applied over a good primer, the hairline cracks will be filled in your stucco and water won’t be able to penetrate and damage your home. It gives your home beautiful color that lasts, and protects your dwelling from the elements.
Highly protective, durable trim paint is applied to boost your home’s overall appearance and bring out the best in your exterior accents.
Detailed Clean Up
All the masking around your home exterior is removed, windows are cleaned, and your dwelling looks fabulous for years to come!
The Importance of an Experienced Applicator
Because the makeup of texture coating is so different from other types of paint, it is difficult to handle and apply. Some people weaken the product by thinning it out, but Approved Contractor applies your texture coating according to the manufacturer’s guidelines, ensuring you get the best long-term results. We don’t cut corners, and we protect your lifetime warranty by complying with strict manufacturer standards.
