We are looking to paint the exterior of our stucco house. We have gotten 5 different proposals from painters. About half are recommending elastomeric paint and the other half are recommending acrylic paint. Any one else out there recently or have painted their house with either elastomeric or acrylic? Don't want to make a wrong choice since it costs so much! PaintConfused
We have a crack in the exterior of our house (stucco), and I'm not sure how to handle. It starts at the upper right side of a door opening and extends about 1.5 feet upward to a 10 o'clock position. It's about 1/4-inch wide in the widest spot. We didn't notice it last winter and now have some water damage on the inside--and the door no longer opens. There are also about 2 or 3 big cracks (1/4-inch wide and 1-3 ft. long) in the same area of the house, only on the interior. They are mostly around the door, emanating from the corners, but there are also some lateral ones near the floor. My question is, do we just get it repaired, or do we have someone come and evaluate whether these cracks indicate something more serious than simple cracking? Any recommendations on who we should call?
We had doors and windows removed and now have patches of exterior wall that needs stucco. The stucco has small pebbles in it, and was probably done many years ago. The area that needs covering is equivalent to the area of one door and three small windows. I have been quoted $1000 and would like to get it done for far less than that or do it myself, if someone can tell me how to do it. Thanks

I have a brick facade across the front of my house, against a stucco wall. Last winter during the heavy wind and rains, we had water come in between the brick and the stucco, and into the interior. I need someone knowledgeable about brick & stucco who can recommend what needs to happen to prevent further leaking, whether that's repairing the existing brick, repairing the stucco, or something else. Any recommendations? Thanks! L.
Hello. Looking for recommendations for stucco work for cracking and unsightly stucco. BPN archive only lists Ezell's - who has been unresponsive to my messages. Anyone other than him? Thanks so much! suja
Kirk Giordano Plastering Company was contracted in November of 2007 to stucco our new addition as well as stucco around 20 newly installed window and doors. We also wanted a maintenance- free color coat over the entire home to make it appear the home was recently built. We unfortunately had prior issues such as leaking walls and major cracks in the stucco that needed proper attention.
We looked at two jobs located in Berkeley off of Arlington Road next door to each other which Kirk and his brother completed and were very impressed by the results and the home owner remarks.
Kirk and his men were very professional, courteous, and really seamed to enjoy their work. They did an excellent job of clean up and did many extras without cost. I would highly recommend Kirk for any of your stucco needs. You may reach him at his home at 510 521-9546 or cell phone at 510 207-0251. J. S
My husband and I are looking to hire a licensed contractor to assist with a sizable external crack in our house between our main house and an added family room. This might require some bracing of the two parts of the house rather than just filling a crack, so we need somebody with good structural expertise and experience. We would like to get this done quickly before the rain starts. Recommendations would be greatly appreciated ASAP. diane
Looking for someone to stucco one outside wall of my house approx 12 ft x 30 ft. I am a bit of a fanatic and really do not want seams to show. Does anyone have recommendations? Leslie
