What is Chimney Stucco?
Stucco is a type of plaster used to cover construction surfaces such as metal, concrete, cinder blocks and many other materials. Stucco was easily applied and molded and was used not only to cover less visually appealing surfaces but to create aesthetically pleasing ones
When Do We Use Stucco?
Traditional Chimney stucco was used primarily as an aesthetic yet durable and water- resistant wall covering. It can also be used for chimneys, and architectural and sculptural additions
What About Stucco Repairs?
Stucco is a very sturdy material and should last for many years before any repairs are necessary. Although theoretically easy to repair, the reason for the cracking of the stucco should be investigated and this usually requires a professional’s help. All cracks thicker than the width of a credit card should be handled by professionals. Repairing stucco is much the same process as applying the stucco; with the addition of removal of the previous stucco. However, if done incorrectly, inexperienced work can result in many numerous, avoidable repairs in the future. If you have a stucco wall constructed in 1960-1970s, there is a chance you have what is called ‘hard coating’. This potential fourth layer of stucco is very heavy, inflexible, prone to cracking and is very difficult to repair.
