Q: We have a stucco house. The stucco is in good shape, but some cracks we have tried to repair still show up. Is there a product that we can paint or spray over the stucco to give it a clean, even look?

 

 

A: An elastomeric-type coating will fill in minor hairline cracks and provide a breathable, waterproof protective coating. Also consider radiant heat gain from the sun when you choose your colour. The lighter the colour, the more reflective the coating becomes. If you want to lower the heat gain on the west or south-facing side of your home, choose a lighter colour.
