Time to Restucco?

Does your existing stucco finish look worn, tired, or dated? If it does, your home may benefit from a restucco. Restucco involves working with the existing stucco surface, making any necessary repairs to the stucco substrate, and applying new stucco to create your beautiful new stucco finish. Home restucco is one of the most common stucco tasks requested by San Diego homeowners and the stucco specialists at Nurse Stucco are restucco experts with over 40 years trade experience.

OK, why Restucco?

A complete restucco of a house or building is the best way to address not only problems of deterioration, but also of cosmetics. The advantage to a complete restucco is that the preparation and repair work is sealed under a color coat that allows for a more solid finished product, without the look of a patch job.

The key to a successful and longer lasting restucco lies in the preparation and repair work. The better the procedure taken to repair and restore the structure or dwelling, the longer the finished product will last. The knowledge gained over the past 4 decades by those at Nurse Stucco will ensure that the best procedures and products will be used to renovate prior to re-stuccoing.

What Is Restucco?

The color coat process of a restucco can be accomplished with a cement based stucco or an acrylic stucco. Both products are very good and long lasting. Hear again, it’s really dependent upon the integrity of the preparation and repair work.

Cement based color coats are the most commonly used exterior finish products. LaHabra Stucco and Omega Stucco are the major suppliers of color stucco products in the San Diego area. Their colors are primarily of an earthen base and mixed into each bag of stucco. Colored cement based stucco is designed to be applied over any cement substrate following proper preparation procedures.

Acrylic color coats are not cement based products, therefore, extra preparation procedures have to be taken to make this product compatible with all cement and stucco surfaces. While in many instances an acrylic finish coat can be a bit longer lasting than cement stucco, the product can also be problematic for certain jobs. Selecting the best re-stucco products to meet your specific re-stucco needs, rather than a one-size-fits-all re-stucco solution is a service that we provide to all Nurse Stucco customers.
