Depending on the type of stucco and whether it has been newly applied to your home you may want to reconsider painting. Stucco that has been recently applied to your home needs time to breathe and harden properly before paint can be applied. Without allowing the stucco to dry and harden, the paint could be trapped within the stucco causing it to bubble and peel off. Once stucco is dry and hard, yes your home can be painted. It’s a good idea to have your home pressure cleaned before applying paint.
