Masonry & Stucco

Worn or damaged exteriors have you feeling like your place of business is being affected?

Looking to enhance your church's beauty with masonry while keeping the historic look?

Seeing too many gaps in your exterior masonry that is causing worry that water can infiltrate your interior?

Masonry & Stucco Repairs

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.

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.

Masonry & Stucco Replacements

When considering an exterior replacement, one should keep in mind the following. As a building material, stucco is a durable, attractive, and weather-resistant wall covering. It is 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 a one base layer and a finish layer, which is thinner and faster to apply, in comparison to the traditional application of a 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. A bonus to this is that it is also available in a variety of colors to suite your particular design selection.

Masonry & Stucco Maintenance

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 that are 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.
