Howdy folks, the age old most common asked stucco question, to breathe or not to breathe, that is the question?
If you google should stucco be allowed to breath you will get 20 different opinions from perhaps 20 different guys.
The fact is if you have a three coat stucco system with a cementitious color integrated maintenance free finish and it’s lathed properly, let it alone as this stucco system is designed to breathe, as the rain soaks through the stucco it will slide down the waterproof two layer of paper and come out of the drip or weep holes, this system will last forever without ever giving the owner the burden of painting.
Those who say I don’t like the color, thus I will paint, will be forced to paint every 10 years for this foolish decision.
However next let’s look at the 80% of homes in the entire world that don’t have the luxury of having a cementitious color finish, of course you can paint.
A quality pressure washing to remove all, dust,dirt and grime and or loose paint along with a top notch Primer and paint system should protect the average home for at least 10 to 15 years, yes like our bodies, paint jobs require maintenance.
This particular wall had a lot going on as it has inset windows, among other details that require experts to attach the lath properly, so the wall maintains its waterproof abilities.
The company that did the stucco finish and all the details did a great job, why this wall absorbs moisture is another story which I’m going to leave alone.
