Stucco is an excellent siding material that adds durability, utility, and style to your home. But as durable as stucco is, it may need to be repaired at some point in time.
Stucco repair may be necessary because the siding has become damaged, or damage has occurred to underlying layers. Timely repairs to your stucco can help prevent costly damages down the road.
Stucco repair is typically carried out if the material has become physically damaged or worn out. Traditional stucco is made from cement, water, sand, and lime. It provides excellent protection against external elements but may need to be repaired after lengthy exposure to such conditions.
Stucco can be repaired using adhesives or binders that prevent extensive damage. While you can repair minor issues by yourself (using portable kits), more significant repair work is best done by professionals.
On average, stucco repairs cost $1178, and homeowners can spend as low as $250 for minor repairs and $4000 for significant repair work. The stucco repair cost will depend on many different factors, including materials, labor, and the extent of work that will need to be done.
Labor costs for stucco-related work range between $40-$50 per hour (translating into $60-$120 per square foot). If you’ll need to replace the stucco, each bag of traditional stucco costs between 5c-10c per square foot, while synthetic stucco costs 35c-50c per square foot.
