Patching smooth / santa barbara stucco


Hello and thanks,

Curious as to what the recommended steps are here.

Whole house is smooth stucco and we are turning a set of french doors into a window so we have some demo to do in order to flash the window and fill in the remaining door area...

Stucco man A says he can patch and blend just the area that is affected

Stucco man B says we need to skim the entire face this window is on (as in this entire wall until we hit a corner or isolation joint)


I do not have a problem with either way but wondering if one is preferred or if both can be done successfully without long term cracking, etc..

Again, feedback is appreciated.

The smoother the surface, the harder it is to hide a patch. I'd be tempted to hire the first guy if he agrees to most of his fee being paid at the end when I signed off satisfied with the job.

Re: Patching smooth / santa barbara stucco


You state smooth?
Is it a smooth like Venetian finish? or a smooth sand float finish/
Is it colored or painted?
All of the above will effect what the finish affect would be.
Smooth Venetian Stucco man B is correct.
Sand float & painted Stucco man A should be able to float it out to match existing.
