Masonry & Stucco

As a building material, stucco is a durable, attractive, and weather-resistant wall covering, traditionally used as an exterior finish directly over a solid masonry, brick or wire mesh with a wood sub-frame. The traditional application of stucco and lath occurs in three coats — the scratch coat, the brown coat and the finish coat. The two base coats of plaster are either hand-applied or machine sprayed. The finish coat can be troweled smooth, hand-textured, floated to a sand finish or sprayed. It is usually a mix of sand, Portland cement, lime and water, but may also consist of a proprietary mix of additives including fibers and synthetic acrylics that add strength and flexibility.

Roof4Roof is fully equipped to handle all of your masonry and stucco needs. We have crews who specialize in stucco repair and replacement, masonry walkways and steps, as well as the building and maintenance of exterior walls and retaining walls. Dealing with an experienced professional is crucial since long-lasting performance and curb appeal are both vital when choosing a masonry contractor.

In addition to roofing problems, another common cause of water infiltration is worn or damaged masonry walls adjacent to the roof. The longevity of the mortar joints will vary with the exposure conditions and the mortar materials used. Persistent damage comes from environmental stressors, changing temperatures and building settlement. If not repaired, damaged mortar joints become a waterproofing problem and eventually cause structural damage. Tuck-pointing is an effective method of ensuring structural integrity and decreasing water entry into your building envelope.

When considering an exterior replacement keep in mind that as a building material, stucco is a durable, attractive, and weather-resistant wall covering, traditionally used as an exterior finish directly over a solid masonry, brick or wire mesh with a wood sub-frame. The traditional application of stucco and lath occurs in three coats — the scratch coat, the brown coat and the finish coat.

Modern synthetic stucco can be applied as one base layer and a finish layer, which is thinner and faster to apply, compared to the traditional application of three-coat stucco. Premixed, bagged stucco is gaining in use and is available in coarse graded sand and finer graded sand for creating a variety of troweled finishes; it is available in a variety of colors.
