If you are applying exterior stucco to your home and you don't like the natural color of the material then painting stucco is an option. There are actually three different ways you can color stucco which include painting, using different stucco mixes, and adding oxide pigments.

One thing to keep in mind when painting stucco is that you need to be sure that the wall is ready to be painted. If you have just applied the retaining wall siding then you should wait up to six weeks before applying any type of paint. If you need to repair damaged drywall then you should do this first. Repairing damages should be done prior to applying any type of stucco mixture. It is recommended you repair all cracks and apply new stucco before you attempt to paint.

If you want to paint stucco the best paints to use are acrylic based paints. Don't use oil-based paints because they have a tendency to interfere with the way the paint actually works and dries on stucco. Not only does the paint not remain on the material but the oils in the paint are not good for the material. Acrylic paint is the best option for painting stucco and it should be the only consideration. There are plenty of colors for you to choose from. The best colors of paint that look the most attractive on stucco are the earthy tones. Colors like beige, tan, peach, and sand look the most attractive on this material. However, you can paint a stucco house any color you prefer.
