The stucco repair and patching process takes years of experience to perfect.  Our current employees average over fifteen years of experience, so we have many, many stucco patches under our belts.  When patching and repairing stucco, it is important to know what to expect.  It is also is an important step to maintain the aesthetics and performance of your stucco.  A stucco repair might be the first step in the process of refinishing the stucco on your entire home, or you might just want to patch a few areas where your current stucco has deteriorated.

Cracks in stucco are very common. Stucco consists of cement, and cement is constantly going through a curing process.  During the curing process, each time the stucco gets wet, it strengthens while it dries out…but as it strengthens, it shrinks slightly (which can cause hairline cracks). We usually recommend repairing stucco cracks once you can fit a quarter into the crack; hairline cracks are not usually something that needs to be repaired but they should be monitored to ensure they don’t get wider.

A stucco patch that is properly completed will blend the newer stucco in seamlessly with the old.
