To re-stucco a home is not an easy task. Most homeowners are under the impression that re-stucco-ing or re-dashing a home is simple. In fact, many people think it simply means adding a new layer of stucco over the top of an existing layer. The reality is that it isn’t very simple at all. Stucco work is difficult and cumbersome and not really a do-it-yourself type of project.
Because stucco is a construction material made of aggregates, a binder, and water it can be applied wet and hardens to a very dense solid thus making it application a bit more than a weekend project. It is used as a decorative coating for walls and ceilings, and as a sculptural and artistic material in architecture.
There are different types of stucco found on homes, synthetic (EIFS) and traditional hard coat (Portland Cement Plaster). Because of this, the process of re-stuccoing a home will be different with varying costs. Each re-stucco project is different. It may include sandblasting, lathing, repair, or patchwork before the act of applying a new layer of stucco actually begins. Sometimes, only a fog coat is needed to even out the color of existing or new stucco or refresh the look of stucco. To be certain, make sure to contact Stucco Boy to help you determine what type of stucco you have and what approach should be taken.
