The sealant applied to stucco surfaces protects the exterior finish from water seepage, dirt and other substances that can damage or discolor a surface. The sealant also fills in any minute cracks for added protection against weathering, which helps maintain the natural appearance of both new and aged stuccos over time. Stucco sealants are available in a variety of colors and textures, depending on the application needs and personal preferences.

In what situations are stucco sealing an important consideration?

The importance of stucco sealing in the Pinellas County Area is vital because without proper maintenance, cracks can form on a building’s exterior walls and lead to water penetration that will damage interior structures like furniture, carpeting and ceiling tiles, as well as create mold or mildew issues that are unsafe for occupants.

How frequently should stucco be resealed?

The frequency of stucco sealing will vary depending on the climate zone and environmental conditions. Stucco sealants typically need to be applied every two years or as needed when damage occurs, such as due to hurricanes or flooding. If you are unsure of how often stucco should be sealed, call Largo  Stucco and Stonework to schedule a consultation.

Sealants can help reduce the risk of mold or mildew growth by preventing water from penetrating through cracks in the exterior walls. In addition, sealing helps protect the building’s interior structures like furniture and appliances from the elements.

How can I tell if my home needs a stucco sealing?

If the stucco color has changed and is flaking, there may be a need to seal the exterior. Signs that it might be time for sealing are if you notice rain water or dirt collecting on top of your house’s surface despite gutters being used.

The stucco may also be cracking, flaking or peeling. Finally, the water could be pooling on top of your house for a long period during rainfall.

What are some things to keep in mind when selecting a stucco sealing company?

Our skilled technicians perform a thorough inspection of your exterior to determine if there are any damages, which could include stripping the old stucco down to its base coat. The company does not recommend sealing stained or damaged stuccos because it is difficult for stains to be removed in that case. If your home has been remodeled, then it’s likely that you have a new stucco base coat. Largo Stucco and Stonework will also need to know how much square footage your home has so they can provide an estimate for the cost of its services.

What is the best sealer for stucco?

Some stucco will only need a sealer if there are cracks that have been patched. In other cases, you may want to use one like Mastic Sealant or Kilz Oil-based Primer/Sealer. But always be sure to read the instructions for whichever product you’re picking out and make certain it’s compatible with stucco.
