Exterior cracks in stucco
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
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?
This could possibly be a Settlement Problem; one of my
specialties is Settlement Correction. Your description
describes what is referred to as settlement problem in
some case it may be simple problem than can easily
corrected or it could a very serious problem any case I
would have to take a look at it.C.
Repair for exterior stucco with small pebbles
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

in between the brick and the stucco, and into the interior. I need

Repair cracking and unsightly stucco
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!
I highly recommend you call Patrick (Paddy) Griffin, 693.5116,
for your stucco work. He did a great job matching my existing
stucco when I had a new door put in. Good luck!
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
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
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.
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
We would like to get this done quickly before the rain starts.
Recommendations would be greatly appreciated ASAP.
For cracks or anything to do with exterior stucco you could try
kirk giordano plastering. He and his brother were very
professional, on time and completed my project with skill and a
good attitude, and cleaned up after themselves. Call him on his
cell phone which is 510 207-0251
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?
We recently hired Joel Rodriguez to stucco the new addition to our home. We were so pleased with the results that we had him do the rest of the house as well, covering the old stucco. His info is:
32 Briarwood Court
Brentwood, CA 94513
Can anyone recommend someone to redo exterior stucco? Thank you.
Ezell's Plastering Company of El Cerrito recently did the stucco work
associated with an addition to our home, as well as seismic reinforcement.
They did an artful job matching the existing stucco in both the patches and
in the new construction. Ezell is a true gentleman with an old fashioned
work ethic, and his crew (many are family members) was uniformly
dependable, professional, courteous and highly skilled at their part of the
job. Ezell's crew was on the job when Ezell promised they would be, and
completed the job on time. You can reach him at 233-5498.
