We normally price work for repair or patching if there are isolated areas. If the work requires extensive patching or if the home has extensive damage, we will then give a quote based on repair or a total recoating of the entire home/ building. On occasion, we have seen severe peeling paint problems. In these instances, we recommend recoating the entire home to properly fix and remedy this type of damage. We price on a per-job basis.
A stucco coat is usually good for 15-20+ years, depending on environmental conditions.
Usually, spotty or “blotchy” stucco color is a result of variations in the thickness of the cement “base coat” beneath the stucco finish. Slightly thicker areas can retain moisture longer. This drying pattern can cause the slower-drying areas to appear darker. Typically, this happens more during winter months, and on shaded surfaces, color variations are considered normal is stucco and is noted in the manufactures brochures.
Manufactures produce any color or shade that you desire. The only exceptions are ultra-deep tones shades of color are not available in traditional stucco.
You can wash if off the surface, damaged areas would need to be removed or sandblasted off This is probably “efflorescence,” also known as “alkali.” Efflorescence or alkali consists of salts leached from cement-based materials when exposed to excessive, saturating moisture. It appears as a whitish powdery “bloom” on the surface of the wall. A wash down with white vinegar and water will help.
As stucco cures some of the water it contains evaporates. This causes the stucco to shrink slightly. As it shrinks, small cracks called “check cracking” might appear. Applying stucco finishes in hot, dry weather could contribute to check cracking in stucco. Some check cracking in stucco is normal.
