Can stucco be applied over painted walls?

If you’re considering stucco for your home or business, you may be wondering if it can be applied over painted walls. The answer is yes! Stucco can provide a durable, long-lasting finish over painted surfaces.  The surface should be clean and free of any loose paint or debris. The wall should also be dry and in good condition. If the wall is not in good condition, it is best to repair any damage before applying stucco.

1. Prepare the wall by removing any loose paint and sanding down any rough edges
2. Apply a layer of primer to the wall to help the stucco adhere better
3. Mix the stucco according to the instructions on the package
4. Apply the stucco to the wall in small sections, using a trowel to smooth it out as you go
5. Allow the stucco to dry for at least 24 hours before painting or adding any other decorations
