Fog Coating For Stain and Color Refinishing

Fog Coating should be your first thought when it’s time to freshen up the appearance of your stucco home. One of the big mistakes homeowners make with California stucco homes is to paint them. Stucco was meant to breath and painting seals the stucco surface and it can’t breath so moisture can build up and create some secondary conditions, the least of which could be staining. Stucco finished homes are very prevalent in San Diego, and Southern California. Stucco can come in many textures and patterns from a stippled sand texture to a troweled knocked down look. And when the stucco need freshening or a new finish, the first thing a homeowner thinks of is that the house needs painting.

Why Fog Coating?

The primary purpose of fog coating is to achieve walls of uniform color. The stucco fog coating process also allows for re-coloring stucco in addition to freshening up the existing color. Fog coating can also be used to overlay stains caused by dirt washed from roofs, discoloration due to soil clinging to and staining the base of walls and to cover non-removable efflorescence on the surface of newly-applied or aged plaster. Fog coating can be applied to any stucco texture, whether it be sand float, Spanish, brocade, dash or other.

Advantages Of Fog Coating

Fog coat is a more durable option than painting as fog coat becomes part of the underlying stucco, which never flakes, peels, or requires sandblasting. It’s an easy, economical, long-lasting application that can be matched to virtually any stucco color. So when it’s time to refinish or rejuvenate your stucco, fog coating is the smart solution.
