Stucco is a favorite finish in many homes in the Las Cruces area. But if exposed, it will act just like your other decorative finishes and your older popcorn ceiling materials -it will start to crack and peel away.
Unfortunately, the bathroom area in your Las Cruces area home can often get to the point where your paint has worn down and your wall texture begins to peel off your walls. At that point, you may think your home builder gave you inadequate or inferior texture product and that’s why your texture isn’t sticking. But the problem usually starts with excessive moisture and exposed texture finishes.
Paint should keep your wall textures protected, but it gets worn easily, especially with the lower quality paints that many home builders use. Repainting the home may have to be done before ten years after the home is built. Waiting too long means your building materials are exposed to conditions like moisture.
Many homeowners don’t know that just a little bit of moisture exposure can completely destroy the textures because it gets behind the texture materials where it continues to stay moist.
Unfortunately, in the bathroom area there is a lot of moisture and humidity created when showering and bathing that will infiltrate the materials of the coating and cause it to start peeling off. Once an area of texture starts to peel, it’s near impossible to make it stop, so removal can become necessary.
If your textured finish is only just starting to peel, it likely can be repaired. Repairing the textured finish isn’t as intrusive and won’t take as long. If your finishes can be repaired, you need a professional who can match what’s already there in texture pattern, material used, and color. It should look as if nothing ever happened with no noticeable areas of repair.
Popcorn ceilings in the Las Cruces and nearby areas are being removed and replaced with more modern textured finishes, or even just replaced with a good paint finish.
