Stucco Patch


hey guys, I have a 12 story stucco building in Cleveland where the existing stucco is failing in a few areas (approx 4% of the building). the owner said that they have been using DAP stucco patch.....I dont want to use that product.

Anyone have a stucco material that they would recommend for an environment like Cleveland (lots of freeze thaw)

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Re: Stucco Patch


What is on there now? 3 coat, EIFS, ???

Do you have the experience to match the texture & make it blend in?

My best advice is to remove the bad area's - clean up till it reaches a good solid area & replace with the appropriate system / materials. I would also find someone really experienced in doing this type of work and use them.

Re: Stucco Patch


Quickrete has a product called "stucco finish coat" that works and is easy to use. Maybe use a bonding agent underneath.

However, since you mention that it's a 12 story building, your cost to reach the areas to repair is probably going to be more than whatever material you actually use. So SLS' advice about using someone who really knows what they're doing is probably the best bet. You don't want to get 12 stories up in the air more than once.

Re: Stucco Patch


we have the equipment and experience to work at heights - did a 30 story building last summer. Stucco is not something that we do every day.

Matching the texture will be an issue but nothing a little trial and error wont fix. The substrate under the stucco is brick. bonding agent is a good idea not sure about Quickrete though - its more of a residential product isnt it?

Some quikcrete products are home owner products. Spec mix is owned by quikcrete which is mainly used in commercial work. Quikcrete makes many quality products.

why won't u use dryvit? Just go to any dryvit dealer and they will help you match the color. The reason for peeling off is temperature they applied stucco in or the buckets left outside in low temp. post some picks, i might help some more

Re: Stucco Patch


If you could post a pic of a chunk of the failing stucco showing the layers it would help. Is it lath over brick, foam over brick or simply mortar slathered over it. Pretty hard to diagnose without more information.

Re: Stucco Patch


Well, the stucco is not dryvet its a stucco over block. I contacted BASF and it is a spray on stucco. I am still waiting on material pricing and data pages for the material - I will post the product once i get that info.

We have the equipment that can spray this material so it well be much easier to match now. here is a pic of the building.

Re: Stucco Patch


Just did a sample of the Thorocoat Heavy Tex in our shop. Not even close

I am going to try STO FreeForm 299 if they ever call me back with a material price.

I don't want to use a cement based product - I dont have time for it to cure. We gotta get this building painted.

Any other recommendations on materials?
