Repairing Stucco

A

lthough stucco siding is very durable, it can be damaged and over time it can crumble or crack. The directions given below work well for patching small areas less than two square feet. For more extensive damage, the repair is done in layers, as shown on the opposite page.

Fill thin cracks in stucco walls with a sanded acyrlic stucco caulk. Overfill the crack with caulk and feather until it’s flush with the stucco. Allow the caulk to set, and then paint it to match the stucco. Masonry caulk stays semiflexible, preventing further cracking.

Premixed stucco patch works well for small holes, cracks, or surface defects. Repairs to large damaged areas often require the application of multiple layers of base coat stucco and a finish coat stucco. Matching the stucco texture may require some practice.
