Choosing to stucco your home is an investment, while it may be more expensive to choose
stucco rather than other options there are many benefits of having stucco on your home
- Durability – If done properly stucco is resistant against things such as fire, rot, and mold.
- Low Maintenance – Just like other exteriors, stucco can be washed with a pressure washer in order to get rid of any dust or dirt.
- Texture – Stucco can be applied in a specific texture the client wants, giving your house a seamless unique look.
Stucco repairs can be difficult, depending on where the damaged area is. When stucco is
damaged it can cause major issues in the structural wall such as water damage resulting in
mold and mildew.
Met Exteriors will come and inspect the damaged area then come up with the best
solution to do a proper and cost effective repair weather it be patch work, or replacing
the whole section if necessary.
When repairing stucco it’s important to keep the integrity of the protective properties
while at the same time keeping the texture and colour uniform with the existing wall. If
done incorrectly the stucco can crack, this is due to the structure needing flexibility, in
order to move and settle.
This is why it is important to have a stucco contractor with the skills and knowledge to fix
not only the overlaying problem but make sure the job is done correctly so no further
