Many business owners use stucco as an exterior coating. When properly installed and maintained, the stucco can last for 100 years. Despite its durability, it is possible for the coating to crack or blister. When you have cracks, they should be repaired immediately to avoid further damage.
How Can Stucco Be Repaired?
When you have cracks in the stucco, contractors can fill the cracks with caulking. Once filled, they will wipe off the excess and allow the caulk to dry. Often, you will need more than one coat of caulking. Then, the contractor will add texture to blend the caulking. For heavy textures, contractors may use a brush to create the texture.
How Can You Finish the Stucco Repair?
Stucco painting creates a more natural look for the exterior of the building. To finish the repair, contractors will use paint that matches the area that needed repair. Instead of regular paint, you can also have a fog coat, which is a traditional cement-based finish. Otherwise, you can use an acrylic finish without the aggregate in it.
