For this residential waterproofing project, we sealed the stucco with Elastomeric paint and updated the exterior color of the home and garage.
Our client had recently renovated his home; the windows were replaced and the stucco was meticulously patched.
We waterproofed the stucco, making sure that the patch job would blend into the rest. Additionally, we painted the concrete and wooden stairs with our favorite long-lasting product.

Elastomeric paint is a great solution when applied properly. Our client requested that we fix the appearance of the patching job so it blended in with the rest. After a proper wash, we waterproofed the stucco, paying particular attention to blending the patched parts into the rest of the surface. As a result, the patched areas are not at all noticeable. Due to Elastomeric paint thickness, you would never know it had been patched! Caulking further ensured that the house was properly sealed against the weather.
This is not a large house, so we applied a color combination that would make the building appear bigger: a light airy color with off-white trims and dark black railings. The light grey color we applied on the staircase nicely offsets the color of the house. We used an industrial strength coat of a Sherwin-William product for performance and durability in this high-traffic area.
With the new windows and the exterior waterproofing paint in a light, ethereal tone, this little house is not only well protected against the elements, it has been given a cheerful, new look that even brightens its surroundings.
“AZ Painting recently painted the exterior of our house and garage, and did an amazing job. Amir and his team explained the process and helped us select the correct types of paint for our job, helped with some minor repairs along the way, and completed the job on time. Amir was very personable and easy to work with, and we were able to make adjustments to the scope as the job progressed. I would definitely recommend AZ Painting!”

Exterior waterproofing stucco is a critical step in ensuring the durability and longevity of a building’s exterior. Stucco is a popular choice for exterior finishes due to its versatility, durability, and low cost. However, stucco is porous, meaning that it can absorb moisture, which can lead to serious damage to the underlying structure of the building if not properly sealed.
Waterproofing stucco involves the application of a waterproof membrane to the surface of the stucco, creating a barrier between the stucco and the elements. This process helps to prevent moisture from penetrating the surface of the stucco, reducing the risk of damage to the underlying structure and increasing the overall lifespan of the building.
The process of waterproofing stucco typically starts with the cleaning and preparation of the surface. Any existing cracks or holes must be repaired, and the surface must be thoroughly cleaned and dried.
The final step is the application of the waterproof membrane, which is typically a liquid-applied product that dries to form a flexible, seamless barrier that protects the stucco from moisture.
Waterproofing stucco is a complex process that requires specialized skills and knowledge. It is important to choose a professional with experience in waterproofing stucco to ensure the job is done correctly. A professional will have the necessary equipment, materials, and expertise to complete the job efficiently and effectively. They will also be able to provide a warranty for their work, giving you peace of mind and protection against any future issues.
In conclusion, waterproofing stucco is an essential step in protecting the exterior of a building and ensuring its longevity. It is important to choose a professional with experience in waterproofing stucco to ensure the job is done correctly and to enjoy the full benefits of a waterproof stucco exterior.
