I bid her at replacing it and putting actual stucco with 3 coats etc. so my question is has anyone ever used a roll on stucco type material. I will be meeting with the owners and discussing the product but I want to know if anyone has used it and what th ey think. I'm leaving a link for anyone to check out What I'm talking about

A roll on stucco? Hmmmmmm.

Are you factory trained to apply it? I doubt the product would be warranted if you are not. If you go ahead with it, it could come back to bite you.

You might do well to consult with someone who specializes in stucco. There is no shame in selling a job beyond your capabilities, or performing some of the work- demo and sheeting- and letting the experts do theirs.

That normally works out better for all involved:

HO gets an expert job with a warranty.

You get paid for your selling ability and performing some of the work.

You have some recourse if there are warranty issues- call the experts back.


Much better than:

You decide to "help them out" to "save them some money"
You do the repairs, the stucco don't look good or it doesn't adhere. (Ask anyone how hard it is to match drywall)
It's not warranted by the manufacturer
You have to redo it, but if you couldn't get it done right the first home,.....
You have to hire an expert.
You're out of pocket expense is 8 grand.
You have to sell your truck.
You have to walk to work, and you step on a nail.

Do you like stepping on nails?

I just reread your post, glad you are looking at real stucco.

The thought of rolling on stucco seems like it would end like it already has for them.

They went cheap the last time. If they want to do it again, walk away.

No shame at all in subbing out work. Let the experts do what they are best at, and collect a fee for finding them, managing them, and selling the completed package to the homeowners.

Re: Roll On Artificial Stucco??


Oftentimes GC's mark up the cost of the subs 10%.

I suppose it depends on the size of the job.

As a GC, If I have a plumbing repair done for $250, I would charge 20%- bill for $300. Similar for the electrical repairs I have done.

I don't make much money from these repairs, but I can offer "one call does it all" type service. I would rather make $50 than not. Over a year, I would rather make $1000 than not.

OTOH, if I solicit an estimate for a roof I don't want to do, I don't quite add 10%. If I tack on %10 to a $15,000 Estimate, I might not sell the job. I would be happy with $500 for chasing the lead, getting an estimate, adding markup, and handing it to the roofers. That's okay for a couple of hours of work.

It depends on the scarcity of the services/subs you can offer, the budget of the customer, and their level of trust in you.
