The "Nestucco" Stucco Maintenance Guide

Leave a few feet of space around the perimeter of any stucco finish. Landscape is perfect for the stucco maintenance. Rocks, gravel, bark, etc. will help prevent dirt from splashing up against your stucco finish when the rain came pouring down!

Apply a good quality stucco sealer to help with your stucco maintenance Ohio State Stucco uses and recommends "OmegaGuard™" stucco sealer. This will protect your new stucco surface against stains AND the elements, while maintaining the stucco finish's requirements to "breathe".

Stucco should be cleaned periodically. A standard garden hose with a decent nozzle should do the trick. Nothing too harsh and if necessary, a mild detergent and soft bristle brush can be used for your stucco maintenance. Ensure to saturate the walls in totality first, and begin at the bottom of the wall, working your way to the top before returning down - this will help against dirt & grime penetrating the lower wall areas as it is washed away.

Try and direct any sprinkles or irrigation systems away from your stucco exterior. Stucco is waterproof and sprinkles saturating stucco can be a prime candidate for efflorescence. Proper stucco maintenance begins with adequate measure of protection as opposed to remedies.

Understand that stucco, whilst durable and long-lasting is a porous material. Painting stucco is often the "kiss of death" when it comes to stucco maintenance. Stucco needs to breath and painting stucco will not only mean higher maintenance costs for your paint application (as mold and excess moisture behind the painted surface will cause cracking an peeling) but also higher stucco maintenance costs as your underlying stucco service will experience accelerated product failure due to its inability to breathe.

Cleaning home exterior accessories such as light fixtures, window sills, vents, gutters, and downspouts will prevent a buildup of accumulated rust which could easily stain the stucco surface if left unchecked, stucco maintenance measures such as stucco sealing can also help to prevent stains such as these.
