Complete Stucco Refinishing, Lakeland, FL
Stucco is a beautiful and durable finish for buildings which is why it has been in use for so long. It's not at all unusual for a well mixed and applied stucco coating to last for a century. That said any surface will eventually start to show the effects of weather and the Floridian weather does its level best to attack your property with a mixture of heat, humidity, rain, and wind. So it's no surprise that over the years even the best stucco coating will dull in color, maybe stain a little, and possibly crack, bubble and blister, or show pitting. Not a problem. Because while refinishing stucco with another stucco coating does require certain skills and procedures, the experts at Lakeland Stucco Repair Pros are the professionals you need to get the job done and get it done right.
There are many reasons why you might want the finish of your stucco renewed. The obvious one is when there is apparent damage from wind or water, and in particular bubbling and blistering that threaten to crack and let water through the stucco layer and into the walls. You want to head that danger off as soon as possible to preserve your property. Then there's fading as color is washed out by sun and rain or becomes uneven (though some people love that uneven patina as part of genuine stucco). Then there's the simple human fact of wanting a change, a new look, a fresh face for your property. No matter why you want to refinish your stucco we are the team to do it for you.
Stucco on Stucco
Applying new stucco to old is a bit of an art but one we can safely say we've mastered. Stucco is a concrete based product and concrete will eventually crack if exposed to variations in temperature over a long time. Part of our refinishing process then is to check for structural integrity and tap out any cracked stucco because laying fresh stucco on fragile or damaged layers beneath will only lead to the problem showing up again. Then we clean thoroughly, allow it to dry properly – a process which takes a couple of days if done properly, then apply a bonding layer to ensure the new stucco will fix solidly with the old. Only then do we apply your stucco refinishing layer, because when it's done by the pros your new finish should last your lifetime – no matter how young you happen to be.
Are you looking to refinish an entire wall but not others. Not a problem for our experts who can color match new stucco to old so that the refinish is invisible. There's a skill to that since we are matching the color of your old stucco to what the new finish will look like when it dries, not when we apply it. You need professionals for that – our professionals.
