Sandblasting

Painting stucco with latex or acrylic paint changes the permeability properties of the stucco system. Everyone has found out through error that painting stucco is not the way to go. If your home has been painted, Lemon Grove Stucco Inc. will sandblast to remove approximately 75-100% of the old paint and deteriorated stucco. This process of removing the existing paint with a high-velocity stream of air, sand, and water is the most important and efficient form of preparation. Unfortunately, there are some contractors that will try to hydro-blast, glue and re-stucco over the existing painted surface. Hydro-blasting, gluing and re-stuccoing is a substandard practice and your stucco will fail.

Hydro-Washing

Hydro-blasting and Hydro Washing is a system used by painters to clean painted surfaces before they apply paint. Hydro-blasting will typically remove about 5% of the loose paint. It is not a good preparation tool for removing paint for a re-stucco job, nor is it a substitute for sandblasting. After Lemon Grove Stucco Inc. sandblasts the paint off your home, we will use the hydro-blaster as a high pressure wash machine to rinse down the surrounding areas.

Re-stucco

Traditional stucco is a cement mixture used for exterior finish coat. The cement is combined with water and inert materials such as sand and lime. Walls made of genuine cement sound solid when tapped and will be less likely to suffer damage from a hard blow. Also genuine stucco holds up well in wet conditions. Although, it is porous and will absorb moisture, genuine stucco will dry easily, without damage to the structure. Stucco is not to be watered with your irrigation system or be allowed to stay wet for long periods of time. Lemon Grove Stucco Inc.’s crew will scrape off loose edges that the sandblasting did not remove. Then an acrylic bonder is applied on the walls, cracks are sealed and then the re-stuccoing of your home (following the procedures on your contract as agreed). Our stucco foreman will walk around the job to make sure you are happy with our work. A typical re-stucco is trowel on in one or two coats depending on the type of texture. Finish thickness will vary due to style of texture. Lemon Grove Stucco Inc. will usually sandblast and re-stucco the average house in one to three working days.
