There is some discoloration after repairs. Painting is easier than coloring the stuco mix.
The wall is particularly bad.
The stucco on this house has started to crumble off in a few areas. It will be pressure washed to remove dirt and loose stucco. The rest will be chiseled loose.
This house located in West Chester needed repairs to the 28 year old stucco. There were cracks formed and loose pieces of stucco that had fallen off or were loosely hanging onto the walls of the foundation.
The exterior surface was prepared for the application of finish stucco. The foundation was first pressure-washed. Next loose stucco was removed using a compressed air needle scaler.. Deep cracks were filled with regular cement. The walls were resurfaced with white finish coat stucco mix fortified with acrylic modifier for strength and adhesion. Loxon XP Waterproofing Masonry Coating by Sherwin Williams was applied to the cured stucco.
This chimney is about 50 feet from ground to top. It needed repairs at the top and along the seems where it met the siding. It also got two coats of Loxon XP.
The following photos show the foundation after loose stucco was removed.
You can see that whole sections need stucco reapplied.
The next photos show the structure with Loxon XP Applied. The color is called "Sand Dollar".
Now that the Loxon XP has been applied, I prepare the area under the deck with a retaining form made from pressure treated wood.
I put a base under the deck using 3/4" clean quarry stone inside the form made from pressure treated lumber.
This stone covering will keep rainwater that runs off the deck from splashing mud on the walls.
