Stucco Repair

About repairing cracked stucco

If you have a small crack in your exterior stucco, you can patch it pretty easily on your own – and you definitely should, or you may be in for more extensive repairs down the line. To repair stucco, you can use any number of commercially sold products. While some are designed to remedy larger gouges and holes, others are meant specifically to fix smaller hairline cracks due to things like foundation settling.

If the crack is vertical, such as from the base to the window or from the roof to the door, there could be a problem with the foundation of the home. If you notice vertical cracks, brown streaks near your windows, stucco cracks larger than 1/8″, bulging on stucco walls, or white chalking, then you should consider contacting Stucco Boy to repair and replace any of your home’s damaged stucco. Our stucco professionals are very knowledgeable and will work alongside you to determine what services your home needs.

Smooth stucco repair

PAINT VS. FOG COAT

And the winner is…

After you’ve made minor repairs to cracks on your stucco, you may be feeling the need to paint over the repair work. However, before deciding to paint over the cracks consider this.

Fog Coat is a cement-based finish that is designed to patch, refresh and re-color exterior stucco walls. Fog Coat is superior to paint when it comes to refreshing stucco because unlike paint, Fog Coat lets the stucco breathe. With paint, moisture is sealed in, potentially causing mold and mildew to grow behind the walls of your home.

With Fog Coat, homeowners can repair unwanted cracks in their stucco without painting or completely re-stuccoing the entire wall. It’s an affordable, practical option with superior results compared to other stucco finishing methods.
