Stucco Redash and Skim
To update the top coat of your stucco, opt for redash or skim which can last up to 20 years. A redash or skim of your stucco simply means to reapply the acrylic topcoat. An adhesive primer is applied and binds to the existing finish coat providing a primer base for a new acrylic topcoat. This maintains the integrity of the stucco system and is a far superior option to painting.
A redash or skim keeps the cost down because you aren’t paying for an entire new stucco system. This allows a refresh of the look of your exterior. Redash can completely change the look of the stucco, including adding a new color and texture.
We do not recommend painting stucco to change or refresh the color. Instead, redash or skimming offers the best option to achieve a high-quality look. Painting stucco produces a subpar finish. It dampens the texture and ruins the finish. Paint impacts the breathability of the system which compromises the function of the system. Also, paint makes it more challenging to repair the stucco in the future. Paint only lasts around 5 years versus up to 20 years with skimming.
Stucco’s texture adds the design depth desired from stucco. The texture adds durability as well as beauty. It’s possible to achieve many different stucco textures. Stucco comes in four basic types of aggregate textures. These include: smooth, fine, coarse, and swirl.
First choose the aggregate texture, then select the trowel technique to get the specialty finish you want. Popular trowel options include: float, dash, lace, and scraped. However, we offer a large variety of custom stucco trowel techniques and specialty finishes.
