Some of the most common stucco projects in Minneapolis and St. Paul are stucco refinishing projects. This stucco refinishing is often called a “re-dash.” When refinishing existing stucco, we typically apply a new two-coat stucco finish over the existing stucco. We first complete any necessary stucco repairs. We then apply the new stucco finish coats, and your home will look brand new!
Foley Exteriors would never recommend painting stucco. Stucco is naturally porous, so paint prohibits the stucco from “breathing.” Paint seals the pores that allow moisture to escape through the stucco. We have found that a refinishing the stucco might initially be slightly more expensive than a quality paint job, but the new stucco finish requires little to no maintenance. Paint requires frequent maintenance, and might only last a few years. A new stucco finish should last for decades, making it a much better value than the alternatives.
If you want to restore the original beauty of your stucco home in Minneapolis, St. Paul, or throughout Minnesota, a stucco refinishing project might be the best option for you.
