Cracks as small as 1/16” of an inch in stucco can cause water intrusion. All cracks 1/16” of an inch wide or larger should be promptly repaired.
Skimming of existing stucco
Can be done in two ways. If cracking does not exist we skim using a bonding agent with and Acrylic Stucco finish coat. If cracking does exist we skim using the bonding agent with an embedded layer of standard reinforcing fiberglass mesh and complete with Acrylic Stucco finish.
