Stucco is a durable and attractive material. It is more expensive than many other materials used in residential exteriors, but it can last fifty or more years. Stucco can result in lower energy bills by keeping places cooler in hot weather and warmer in colder weather. It’s fire retardant, and it is resistant to common Florida problems like mold.
Applying stucco to the exterior of a home is more complex than painting. Done properly, stucco is an excellent protective surface, one that adds value and curb appeal to a residence. Done improperly, it’s a problem, you don’t just repaint it like you can with paint. It’s best left to professionals who have the experience and tools to get it done properly and efficiently.
Stucco can also be damaged and need repair. That’s one of the things our stucco specialists at American Quality Construction do. We repair damaged stucco.

If over time the house foundation settles a little, stucco may crack. In storms, wind can blow debris that can chip stucco, and blown down tree limbs hitting the stucco can damage it. If cracks and blisters appear, there could be water seepage that has damaged the underlying surface. Just like installing stucco, repairing it requires experience and is a job best left to professionals.
