Question

How do I repair large sections of stucco?


I have a house that was built in 1935 in Minneapolis, MN. I was built with a stucco exterior. I purchased it after it sat for 4+ years and the exterior stucco is in need of some repair. There are some large areas that are cracked and starting to pull away from the house. There are other areas that have been very poorly patched that i would like to fix. The stucco is textured and I would like to match the old to the new. I have 8 yrs of constriction history and I would like to think of myself as a pretty handy person. This why I would like to handle this myself, I just don't know the process. I have done some searching and found this site. Hopefully I can get the info I need to do the job from start to finish from the knowledgeable people on this site.

I will try to get some more pics of the damaged areas and texture of the stucco.
This is the only pic I had on file, you can see the patch above the door on the right.


Thanks,

Eric
