I have a stuccoed house in need of a face lift. Can it be painted?

The stucco is about 6 years old and beginning to show it's age. I've been told that stucco can not be painted, the house would need to be re-stuccoed. Is that correct?

    Stucco can be painted. Sherman Williams sells paint formulated for stucco. You can also use an exterior masonry paint. The pros in the paint dept. can help you out. http://homeguides.sfgate.com/paint-old-exterior-stucco-25797.html

    I do not know who told you stucco cannot be painted.There are many paint companies that offer paint for specific reasons.Choose your color and go for it.

    I don't see why it couldn't be painted. I had a stucco house that was 60 years old and it had been painted several times. Unless the "stucco" is made of something new/synthetic/odd??

    I'd advise you not to hire the person who told you that to do any work for you!

    Absolutely it can be painted! Use a roller with a heavy nap.
