What is Stucco Paint?
Although stucco is a formidable and durable exterior option, its paint can fade at times. Also, if new homeowners don’t like the colour of their recently purchased house, they can paint it a colour they prefer.
As the name suggests, stucco paint provides a layer of new colour to your home. Typically contractors and homeowners will use an elastomeric paint, especially for older homes, because it has better bonding potential and can fill hairline cracks.
What is Stucco Coating?
Stucco coating is a thick, breathable application which has several purposes. Similar to paint, it can alter the colour of your home. However, coating is 8X thicker than traditional stucco paint, meaning it lasts much longer. At CANZ, our stucco coating also comes with a lifetime warranty.
Unlike paint, stucco coating also adds superior protection against external elements and harsh weather conditions. With multiple coating layers, advanced durability, and many other advantages, stucco coating both protects and beautifies your home.

Which One Should I Use for My Home?
Based on the list of advantages and disadvantages, it’s clear that stucco coating is the superior option. If you’re looking for a long-lasting and advanced application, then coating is the best choice.
However, you also have to take your budget into account. Because coating needs expert installers and is designed with high-quality and advanced materials, it comes with a higher price tag.
