Stucco Painting Calgary – Stucco Painters in Calgary for over 20 years.
Stucco Painting Calgary – Are you looking for Stucco Painters in Calgary? When it comes to Stucco Painting , at About Painting we prefer to paint with exterior flat latex or stucco coat, one full coat followed by another full coat 3 or 4 hours later. Which is my understanding of what two coats of paint means. You will notice a pretty wide range in the cost of Painting Stucco especially using Elastomeric coatings.
Most manufacture’s specifications call for one coat of Elastomeric sprayed on, followed by rolling out that fresh coat that was just applied shortly afterwards. This is normally followed by another coat of product sprayed on. It would be a good idea for you to check out the application methods suggested to you by your potential Stucco Painting Company.
If you are only applying one coat a day to the project it adds significant time and cost to paint your stucco. If your Stucco Painters are applying two coats of Elastomeric and back rolling the first coat in one day especially early spring or late in the fall, you might want to check out the manufacture’s specifications.
If you are applying the specified amount of product it takes a long time for the first coat to set up properly before applying the second coat. I myself am not a big fan of this product. If you have an old house where you are trying to bridge more than hair line cracks in the exiting stucco or having trouble with moisture entering the interior then this is probably the product you are looking for.
If you have done your research, you will find Elastomeric Coatings are to be applied at 75 to 100 square feet per gallon per coat. (i.e.: 20 to 25 gallons per coat based on 2000 square feet of stucco). Two coats is equal to 8 to 11 five gallon pails at $150.00 per pail for a medium grade of Elastomeric Coating. It puzzles me as to how a 2000 square foot home can be painted with Elastomeric for $4500.00 when the material costs are better than 33% of that cost. To get the paint manufacturer’s product warranty, which many Painters claim; you will need the representative from the paint manufacturer to confirm the proper amount of paint has been purchased and applied to get the painting manufacturers warranty. The 10 to 15 year warranty normally comes from the supplier of the paint product not your painter.

For simply changing the color, acrylic latex paint is the most cost effective product there is. Normally you can apply two coats of latex paint on the areas you are painting in one day no problem at all. If your painting crew has their act together and are professionals they can prepare the areas for spraying the stucco, apply two coats of paint, clean up, and leave the areas being painted ready to use by the end of the day. This allows for minimum disruption to the people occupying the house or building you are painting. It is not pleasant having all the areas not being painted covered up or protected for several days especially when you are at the mercy of Calgary weather. Ideally you want your Stucco Painters in and out fairly rapidly while getting the best bang for your buck.
