In this video, you will learn about stucco repair. Stucco is a very durable wall surface. Many homeowners choose to build with it.
However, it is rigid so it can crack and chip easily without damaging the overall structure. This could eventually cause damage. You want to make sure you seal it from water, to prevent more damage. Using a chisel and hammer, widen the crack at least a quarter-inch and remove the loose material. Caulk and sealant products will repair stucco. Stucco repair can be used on horizontal surfaces. Slowly draw the gun down the crack, forcing it into the crack. The repair will form a skin in 20-40 mins. It will harden in a few hours depending on the weather. It needs to cure for 24 hours before painting. This can be cleaned up easily with a damp cloth. Stucco patches are a pre-mixed formula that make repair to cracks easier.
