Weston Stucco Repairs Toronto
Stucco siding is a beautiful addition to any home or business. While it's meant to hold up for years to come, once in a while you may encounter problems with cracks or holes in the stucco. These will need to be repaired right away. If left unrepaired, stucco damage can cause leaks and lead to further deterioration in the siding. Because stucco is a textured surface and one that is quite unique, it always poses a challenge to anyone looking for a DIY solution. But stucco repair, done right, by qualified professionals can make your stucco siding as good as new.
The most common stucco repair of all is moisture. Because exterior siding is so exposed to all elements of weather, occasionally you will run into problems where stucco may crack, cause holes, or even need to be resurfaced. Cracking is due to structures settling, and if it is not repaired quickly it can often lead to blistering.
Holes in stucco can occur, as well. Though not as common as cracking, holes can occur because of something hitting the stucco and causing damage that way. Because they leave the entire area exposed, you want to get these repaired right away.
Sometimes, resurfacing may be the best answer to your stucco problems, particularly if the stucco has seen its share of years or if the stucco is deteriorating in several places along a surface. In this instance, an entirely new surface is put in place of the old. This approach can solve any problems you are having with blistering, holes or cracking, and is a long-term solution.
Don't try these repairs yourself. You want to call in a stucco expert, someone with years of experience and answers to all of your stucco concerns. They are best able to offer you the right solution for your every stucco problem.
Stucco keeps your home cool in summer and warm in winter, is easy to clean and maintain, and looks great. To keep it looking its best, you only want the experts to fix it for you.

Why Stucco Cracks
There are several factors that can contribute to the stucco cracking over the years. Stucco is generally laid over metal lath which, while sturdy for construction is susceptible to the elements and can rust over time. Stucco is very heavy and when the metal lath rusts the weight of the plaster causes the stucco to let go and can result in cracks. Another cause of cracking stucco is that it is often times installed without the appropriate expansion joints. Stucco expansion joints relieve the stress of the thermal expansion and contraction of the stucco as well as the natural shrinkage which occurs while stucco is curing. Finally, a leading cause of cracked stucco and likely the most severe is failing flashing or caulking. When stucco cracks for this reason it is imperative that you act fast to repair it as it means that water is penetrating your stucco exterior and small cracks will quickly become large cracks and before long you will have a mold issue which can be detrimental to your home and your health.
The Solution Our stucco restoration experts will visit your home or business to assess the damage and determine which of the above-mentioned issues you’re experiencing. If the cracks in the stucco are small and the integrity of the cladding itself has not been compromised we will be able to patch the cracks. This is achieved by applying a base-coat of cement and epoxy with a 4.5 ounce fibreglass mesh. Once that has cured we will apply a colour coat to ensure that the appearance of your stucco is seamless and there is no remaining evidence of the cracks. Alternatively, if your stucco issues are more severe and the integrity of the wall itself is at risk we will replace the entire panel. We’ll first tear down the existing stucco in a safe manner and then replace the wall either with traditional stucco or with EIFS.
As with any project we undertake, A & N Exterior Stucco will always visit the site first and provide a free on-site estimate.
