Stucco Patching and Waterproofing

Waterproofing is important in any home, but with a stucco exterior it can be even more crucial. Largo Stucco and Stonework will use your existing stucco as scaffolding to apply the waterproof membrane at an overlapping 12 inch line on all sides of the house (except for windows). They’ll then cover that area with a bottom-coated veneer.

A good rule of thumb is to waterproof the exterior stucco once every five years, but if you see water damage in your home’s foundation or basement then you’ll want to contact our team sooner rather than later because this could be an indication that there are leaks in your home.

What is the purpose of stucco patch repair?

Stucco patching is important because it can be a home’s first line of defense against water damage. Other than caulking, which should only be done after all the other waterproofing has been applied, this will usually be your last step before painting or staining your exterior walls.

Stucco patching is a great way to maintain the stucco on your home’s exterior walls. It prevents water from getting into gaps between brick or stone and entering your foundation, which can be very costly to repair when it happens.

What benefits do you get when your stucco walls are waterproofed?

Waterproofing is done to stucco walls for a few reasons. The most common reason is as an insurance policy against leaks in your roof or gutters, which eventually could cause water damage inside your home. It can also be used if you are experiencing flooding during storms and need to prevent future problems on the exterior of your home.

In order to get the most out of your waterproofing investment, it is important that you invest in a quality product. There are many companies and products on the market today, so be sure to do some research before making any decisions. Largo  Stucco and Stonework is happy to help you figure out what will work best for your home.

How is stucco patched by stucco repair contractors?

Stucco patching is a common repair and maintenance issue. Stucco contractors typically offer this service as part of the regular stucco installation services, so you don’t need to find an additional contractor for this task. The stucco repair contractor will cut the patch to fit, apply a thin layer of adhesive and set it into place. Once in position they’ll use some finishing touches like caulking or dry brushing to smooth out any imperfections. The finished product is usually painted with exterior paint on top of the patch so that it blends seamlessly with your home.

What are the different options for stucco waterproofing?

There are three main options to consider when it comes to stucco waterproofing. The first option is a spray-in waterproofer that can be applied directly on the exterior of your home and works by creating an impenetrable barrier against moisture. The second option entails applying a liquid membrane over the top of your existing stucco, and the third option is to install a drainage mat beneath your stucco.

What happens when Stucco gets wet?

The water can cause the stucco to rise and push away from the wall, making it prone to cracking. Stucco will also expand when wet which may create an unsightly bulge on a house’s exterior. When moisture penetrates behind loose or deteriorated mortar joints in brick buildings, this may cause the mortar to deteriorate and crack.
