Stucco is a durable and great-looking exterior finish, but it isn’t invincible, needing repainting every 5 to 10 years and regular maintenance to prevent hairline cracks from growing larger. If you neglect proper stucco maintenance, it can leave a home vulnerable to costly damage. Rhino Shield® is the best way to tackle this problem. Let’s take a look at the common challenges of painting stucco and why Rhino Shield is your best bet against them.

Excessive Moisture

Stucco does not do well in areas with excessive moisture or precipitation. With stucco homes in arid or dry climates needing a more proactive maintenance and painting routine, Rhino Shield’s steps up to the plate with a permeability that prevents coating breakdown by releasing condensation and water vapors.

Hairline Cracks

Stucco is prone to cracking due to settling and expansion of the home, foundation and soil. Hairline cracks pose no problem as long as they’re covered and sealed with paint. If ignored, however, they can let moisture in behind the stucco, leading to rot or water damage. Painting contractors overcome this challenge with Rhino Shield. It's guaranteed not to crack, chip or peel. It also offers superior corrosion resistance, ultraviolet (UV) ray reflectivity and waterproofing.


The white powder or streaks on your stucco is efflorescence. It indicates water damage behind the stucco as water moving through the stucco dissolves salts and leaves them behind. You can't take care of this with paint. With Rhino Shield ceramic coating, however, the problem area can be covered after the water damage has been addressed.

Cracking, Peeling, Mold or Blistering

These are signs your stucco walls need repainting. Before covering them, make sure to find their causes. There could be an underlying problem no amount of paint can fix. Once the root of the problem has been addressed, get your expert painters for outside of the house to apply Rhino Shield ceramic coating.
