Here is the process you can expect from our Dreamstyle stucco installation team:
- TRENCHING: We trench around your home, where the soil meets the foundation. This is typically done to a depth of 4” – 6”.
- TRIMMING: We trim shrubs and bushes where needed to allow our installers access to the areas that will receive stucco.
- PROTECTION: Our installers will cover all landscaping features, sidewalks and driveways.
- SURFACE PREP: We remove all loose stucco to assure a proper starting surface for the new work that will be done.
- POWER WASHING: We water-blast all areas with a 5000 p.s.i. water jet to clean the surface and remove any additional stucco and open up all cracks for further treatment.
- WINDOW PROTECTION: We mask all windows, doors, lighting fixtures and any additional ornamental items that are not removed from your home’s walls.
- PATCHING: Our team will patch all holes, voids and cracks to level the existing surface for a professional finished appearance.
- PAINTED SURFACE: We will apply a bonding agent to dissolve your old painted surface to make sure the new color coat adheres properly.
- REINFORCEMENT: Depending on the existing conditions, and when needed, we will apply a fiberglass reinforced base coat over lath areas and cracks.
- NETTING/LATH: Depending on your job, we may have to install stucco netting or metal lath to all areas to properly receive the new stucco finish.
- CAULKING: When needed, all cracks are caulked with an elastomeric caulk to bridge cracks up to 1/8”.
- SEALER: A waterproof sealer is applied 12” – 16” at the base of the wall.
- PARAPETS: Our exclusive process totally re-laminates the parapets to assure years of serviceability.
FINISH COAT: We hand trowel the finish coat giving you a sound finished coat for extended life and appearance
