repair stucco


Hi, As seen in the pics, the facade of my building is stuccoed. I believe the city cleaning truck knocked into my facade and left some damage.

One damage is in the middle of the surface, about 2/3 sqft big. The other damage is bigger, over 1 sqft.

Any tricks or instructions on how repair such damage would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks yoall.

repair stucco


Hello! You could do a couple of things: 1. hire a company to help you fix the stucco or 2. work with a mixture (like stucco patch/masonry cement and clean sand) and water and spread it on the damaged areas. I think the second option could work for the first picture's damage, but I don't know if that option will do the area in the second picture justice. You will need to get rid of the damaged stucco, to clean up the area first, if you choose option 2. It looks like you will also need to replace the wire on the wall in the second picture. Make sure that the holes are covered with wire before you do anything. If you choose to do the repair yourself, you will need to most likely apply three coats to it - two base coats of stucco and then the cement and sand mix. Apply the first coat and let it sit for a couple of days. Then go back and add a second coat, smoothing it over after you are done. Add the third coat - a finishing coat, and the hard part will be done. Don't forget to paint the area to match the color that already exists. Hope this helps a little bit! Good luck!

Thanks, everlast,

Looks like the red mesh was part of the stucco. How do I repair the mesh? How do I patch up the mesh?

thanks

Instead of using steel mesh, can you use some fibreglass matting instead? Might be easier to tie into the reaining mesh.
