What Is Stucco?
Stucco is a cement-based plaster that is applied over walls and other surfaces inside and outside of buildings. It is made from cement, sand, and lime and hardens into a highly durable material that requires little maintenance and can be used to obtain different textures and finishes.
Making sure you get the right contractor to perform the job is important to prevent rot. If moisture isn’t allowed to escape via proper application, then it builds up, causes rot from the inside out and forces its way out any openings. Typically those openings are around doors and windows which is why stucco homes often have rot at the bottom of door and window frames.

Our Stucco Repair Process
Stucco is close to cement in that it is made with an aggregate, a binding agent, and water. When stucco is applied it is done in a wet condition, and when it dries it becomes very hard.
Do you know the difference between good and bad stucco?
Most people can’t tell the difference until it’s too late and they have to hire somebody like me. Fortunate for you, JCE Painting’s services are affordable compared to what you’d pay other contractors.
A big mistake we see with a lot of stuccoes is using a low-quality mixture. At JCE Painting, we created our own special stucco patching process that starts with mixing four substances (primer, mortar, caulking, and bonding agents) to make a “solid steel” exterior. Our special solution can fill in 2 x 2 ft. holes that hold up amazingly and never crack. We’ll even go as far as to say that it will outlive the house!
We spend a lot of time repairing poor stucco work done by less experienced painting contractors. A tell-tall sign of shotty stucco work is by running your hands over the stucco and seeing if it crumbles to the ground. This means you have weak and cracking stucco which will allow water to leak through the failing areas. Water will seep in and expand as it freezes and heats up causing big holes to appear in your house.

Poorly done stucco is almost guaranteed to fail within the year and cost you a fortune over the long run due to yearly repairs.
Warning! Most Stucco Contractors Mess This Up
Believe me, I’ve overseen hundreds of stucco jobs all across the San Diego area and I see even more while I drive around town from job to job. I see things that the average person and even the average painter miss that can cause stucco to look worse and fail sooner. One of the biggest mistakes is failing to properly caulk everywhere where stucco meets wood. Caulking between stucco and any trim is how we prevent moisture from getting into the two building materials. When moisture gets in, we’re more likely to see mold and rot, two things we don’t want.
