stucco paint


is it better to prime a stucco house with a kind of primer made for stucco or can i use kilz2? ive read about some kind of stucco primer that is thicker than normal paint so it kind of blends the repairs in the stucco with the surrounding area. i couldn't find anything of the sort at home depot.

Special paints you will not find in the big box stores. Well any that are worth while IMO. I recommend that you go to a real paint store ask them about primers. As far as "Stucco paint" I would use a Elastomeric product. Here is a link for a good read......

stucco paint


Stucco can be pretty tricky to repaint especially if you have repairs. Is the stucco cementitous or acrylic. Most acrylic stucco manufacturers (EIFS systems) have specialized coatings for their products. If you know what brand was used contact the local distributor. Some people have use an ultra thick primer like Peel Bond to recoat repaired areas before re-painting. Peel Bond is thick enough to give the surface a consistant texture. The trick is to do a whole panel so that it is not so noticeable.

stucco paint


the house is in cleveland ohio. i don't know what kind of stucco it is. how do i tell? it was built in the twenties. i used a benjamin moore acrylic primer on the front wall and it looks ok. i went to an industrial hardware store and they recommended this kind of primer. it is an all purpose primer where stucco is the last application listed. i want to try something made specifically for stucco on the rest of the house. something thicker.

Drewhart, send me a PM with your contact number.. Since you are local, I can took a look at the job and recommend an economical solution. Peel Bond is not cheap, no doubt. If it does what you need it to then its not expensive either.

BTW- XIM amanufacturing and offices are in Westlake Ohio, suburb of Cleveland.
