What are some of the advantages of stucco?2023-08-18T10:39:43-08:00

Reasonably priced, easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing, stucco has been a popular siding choice for hundreds of years. With a variety of colors and textures to choose from, stucco works well with any home’s exterior. Stucco is a more durable finish and it is also more fire resistant than other types of finishes.

Stucco requires less maintenance than other exterior finishes. You can expect a quieter home with a stucco exterior and a higher degree of energy efficiency. This is due to its superior insulating qualities. Stucco provides moisture protection while also allowing your home to breathe. Finally, in long-term cost analysis, a stucco home provides the highest return on investment for the owner.

Stucco siding has been used for centuries. The ancient civilizations painted wall frescoes onto fine-grained hard plaster surfaces made of gypsum, marble dust and glue. During the Renaissance, the Italians elaborated stucco techniques, which, in turn, spread throughout Europe.

While stucco is not a new building material, the changes made to finishes can make it look completely different. A wide array of styles and colors to choose from as well as different application techniques make stucco unique.

Why do small cracks appear in stucco finishes?2023-08-18T10:15:36-08:00

Stucco Cracks

Another term for this is check cracking. Check cracking in stucco is normal, as stucco cures the water evaporates. This evaporation process causes the stucco to slightly shrink.

As the stucco shrinks the small cracks may start to appear. Environmental factors can increase the likeliness of check cracking. In hot dry weather a light spray(mist) of clean water is recommended. And it may help reduce the appearance of check cracking.

What Is MONOKOTE?2023-08-18T19:59:32-08:00

MONOKOTE® is a life-safety product designed to reduce the rate of temperature rise in steel or concrete in the event of a fire. This prolongs the structural integrity of the structure, which allows more people to leave a building in an emergency situation and gives first responders time to save the building.

MONOKOTE® monokote MK-6 spray fireproofing San Diego Restucco Contractor | Nurse Stucco San Diego Restucco Contractor | Nurse StuccoMonokote® is a popular fireproofing material used in office buildings, schools, hospitals, warehouses, and other large buildings that are constructed out of concrete and steel. Resembling wet cement when applied, Monokote fireproofing is applied throughout a building’s interior in order to help prevent structural failure during a high-temperature blaze.

In many areas, building codes require the use of “passive” fire-protection materials like Monokote in certain structures. Not only will this help prevent a building from collapsing, but it will give the occupants of a building more time to escape in the event of a fire and gives first responders time to save the building.

Nurse Stucco is the Monokote fireproofing contractor of choice for installation in Southern California locations in the San Diego County area. We are a family owned and operated C-35 licensed contractor that has built a reputation for continually surpassing the expectations of our customers. When it comes to protecting your building from a disastrous fire, Nurse Stucco has you covered.  Contact Us for more information and a quote on your project or call our office at (619) 561-7429.

How long does the average restucco job take to complete?2023-08-18T10:19:32-08:00

From start to finish, a home restucco job is normally completed in under 2 weeks. This is partly due to the need for the stucco to cure between the application of the base coat, then the brown coat, and color coat. Finally, the time to set up and take down equipment on the job site. Here are some examples of our work.

Preparing your house for a restucco is an important step to ensure a successful and long-lasting finish. Here are the steps we follow:

1. Inspect the existing stucco: Start by inspecting the current stucco for any damage, cracks, or signs of moisture. Make any stucco repairs needed before proceeding with the restucco.

2. Repair and replace: If there are any damaged or rotted wood surfaces, trim, or moldings, repair or replace them before applying the new stucco. Make sure all surfaces are solid and in good condition.

3. Clear the area: Remove any obstacles or outdoor furniture near the walls to provide easy access to the entire surface.

4. Clean the walls: Thoroughly clean the exterior walls using a pressure washer to remove dirt, dust, and loose debris. Allow the walls to dry completely.

5. Protect surrounding areas: Cover windows, doors, plants, and other structures near the work area with plastic sheets or drop cloths to prevent damage from splatters during the restucco process.

6. Trim vegetation: Trim back any bushes, trees, vines, or other vegetation that may be in close proximity to the walls. This will prevent interference during the restucco application and allows for proper curing and drying.

7. Apply bonding agent: Use a bonding agent or primer recommended by the stucco manufacturer to promote adhesion between the old and new stucco layers. The stucco bonding agent strengthens the bond between the existing stucco surface and any new material applied.

8. Protect fixtures and surfaces: Cover any light fixtures, outlets, vents, or other features attached to the walls with tape or plastic to prevent them from getting damaged during the restucco process.

Proper preparation is crucial for a successful restucco project. Following these steps will help ensure a beautiful and long-lasting finish for your home. If you have questions about getting your home ready for restucco, give us a call at (619) 561-7429 or use our Contact Form to Reach out to us.

Why does my stucco flake off at the bottom of the walls on my house?2023-08-18T10:35:34-08:00
Stucco Flaking San Diego Restucco Contractor | Nurse Stucco San Diego Restucco Contractor | Nurse Stucco

Flaking Stucco

This phenomenon is normally caused by moisture being drawn from the surrounding soil. This is usually caused by the stucco coming in contact with soil and extended exposure to moisture. This allows the salts and minerals contained in soil to migrate to the surface. It can eventually deteriorate and/or cause delamination of the stucco.

There are many common causes. Water from Sprinklers continually soaking the wall or improper site drainage (water draining toward the wall). Moisture in the soil or water sitting at the base of the wall is traveling up the wall. A lack of Weep Screed at the bottom of stud framed stucco walls prior to early 1970’s construction.

This condition is common in older buildings and for this reason, the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) determined the need for “weep screed” a separation device as a remedy in new construction. For an existing structure, a separation of the stucco and the soil with the installation of a weep screed would be the only permanent solution.
