Why You Should Hire a Professional to Repair Your Stucco
Applying or repairing a stucco is a sophisticated and complex job that you should never try to do yourself. In today’s blog, we’re going to give you some of the reasons why should always choose a professional to repair your stucco or stucco system.
Stucco, like cement is caustic. You have to be careful mixing, using it and applying it. If you get it on you, it can burn your skin. Professionals know how to take precautions around stucco.
In addition, working with stucco often requires being up on big ladders. You want professionals who are licensed and insured up on those ladders—not you.
Each stucco professional has his or her own recipe for mixing stucco. If the proportions are off, then you will have a stucco that does not adhere and crumbles over time. If you try to do it yourself and get the mixture wrong, you will have a big mess on your hands and then you will still have to hire professionals.
Do you need colour matching? You can forget about trying to do that yourself. It will be impossible.
Only a professional stucco person can determine the extent of your damage. Is water getting under the stucco? Do you have mold? How much needs repair. The damage that is visible to the untrained eye may be quite different from what the professional stucco person will notice.
It will be more cost-effective to hire a professional. The professional will save you from having to repair the stucco TWICE, and will have the equipment and staff to repair your stucco much more quickly than you would. You will save money by hiring a professional.
