In dry climates stucco tends to be a very popular choice for homeowners. This is due to the materials durability as it allows stucco to last for a very long time, and it requires relatively little in the way of maintenance. This not to say that you won’t need to maintain your stucco siding. Unfortunately over time small cracks or blemishes will appear and could turn into significant problems if they are left unaddressed.

With this in mind, here are a few maintenance tips from CDP Stucco to help you get the longest life possible out of your stucco siding.


One of the most important things you can do to extend the lifespan of your stucco is by keeping it clean. Stucco’s naturally porous surface easily attracts dirt and grime, and the more dirt that builds up, the more it could lead to problems such as stained, dirty-looking stucco or excess moisture. The dirt and debris that gets into pores will trap moisture, and with more moisture, that could result in compromised structural integrity as it freezes and thaws.

One of the best techniques  is to power wash the stucco siding at least once a year in order to remove any dirt buildup. This also allows for the stucco to stay clean and dry.


Make sure you perform occasional inspections of the stucco in order to make sure it’s still in good condition. You can do this by simply walking around the exterior of your home and examine the stucco. You should keep an eye out for any chips, cracks, or any other types of damage. Even tiny chips are worth noting, as they could become problematic if not fixed.


Sadly the sealant on your stucco will not last forever, even if it’s a high-quality one. All sealants will eventually break down, and this means that there will come a time when you’ll need to apply a new one. Make sure you don’t delay when the time arrives—water-resistant sealants are a big difference maker for maintaining high-quality stucco.


If you do find yourself needing to make repairs it’s always going to be in your best interest to have a professional, like CDP Stucco, come in and perform the necessary remedial work.

Whether it’s repairing cracks, cleaning the stucco or doing larger-scale repairs, making sure you have CDP Stucco work done on your siding will go a long way toward creating a long-lasting product.
