We repair all types of conventional stucco, synthetic stucco (EIFS), manufactured stone and interior plaster. Repairs may include anything from bird holes, bulges, or cracks to delamination, terminations below the grade or large scale damage.
The primary objective of the repair is to eliminate moisture intrusion. In areas of high moisture, the stucco is opened and inspected for structural damage. If there is no structural damage, the area is re-stuccoed matching the original color and texture as closely as possible.
If there is structural damage and wood repair is required, depending on the extent of the repair, we may repair the structure and re-stucco or re-stucco after the customer’s carpenter has completed the needed repairs. Repair may also require the installation of flashing.
A kickout flashing is a piece of metal or plastic used where a roof line ends at a vertical wall. The flashing is installed above the rain gutter and/or drip edge flashing and behind the stucco in order to “kick out” rain water and divert it away from the vertical wall. Missing or incorrectly installed kickout flashing can be the source of major structural damage, mold and wood rot.
Exterior caulking applies a bead of flexible sealant to fill or cover cracks, seams and gaps where drafts or moisture might get into your house or where heated/air-conditioned air might leak out. Caulking helps keep your house weather-tight, lowers heating/cooling bills, and prevents damage to structural members. It can also help keep out insects and other “critters.”
We have experience in new construction and remodel projects using EIFS and hardcoat stucco applications on both commercial and residential buildings. That experience includes use of sculptured trim as window trim, quoins, keystones, and decorative crown mold. We do interior as well as exterior applications.
