Pros and Cons of Exterior Stucco:
In Los Angeles, Stucco is a very popular building material due to the dry climate. Stucco is resistant to fire, insects, and sound. It is relatively inexpensive compared to brick or stone. Aesthetically, Stucco is admired because of its unique texture. Another benefit is that stucco is very easy to paint.
The downside of stucco is that it is prone to cracks. In addition, excessive moisture presents problems for stucco. Stucco is a porous material that absorbs water but needs sunlight to dry. In wet environments, stucco can get waterlogged and break down. It’s problematic when water gets behind stucco for a long period of time.
To enjoy the beautiful appearance and durability of stucco, cracks should be patched and painted before they become a problem. If stucco crack repair is neglected, small hairline cracks can get much larger.
The Causes of Stucco Cracks:
The four primary drivers causing stucco cracks are surface deformation, UV rays, moisture, and major impact.
Surface deformation is the process by which substrates expand and contract with changes in temperature. Different building materials change at different rates which results in tension that causes cracking and delamination of the stucco. Stucco expansion joints help reduce this tension as long as joints have sufficient caulk. Besides changes in the weather, seismic activity from earthquakes can also cause surface deformation.
UV rays present another problem by breaking down the stucco. A telltale sign is faded color. Exterior painting will protect the stucco from UV rays by providing a protective coating.
Stucco is a porous material that naturally absorbs water. Stucco takes a few days to dry out after a rainstorm. If the stucco remains wet and waterlogged after a week, water has gotten behind the stucco. After some time, water behind the stucco will cause deterioration and cracks in the stucco.
Lastly, a catastrophic event can cause damage and stucco cracks. The impact from a car crash or accidental firework explosion can be the culprit of large cracks or holes in the stucco.
Our Process For Commercial Stucco Repair:
A visual inspection or infrared inspection is performed to determine if we can fix the issue. Stucco cracks and small holes can be patched and painted by our team. Major damage that requires stucco installation should be done by a masonry contractor.
A thorough cleaning of the surface is performed with pressure washing equipment. This prepares the surface before any coating is applied.
Repair Stucco Cracks:
A primer or elastomeric caulk is applied depending on the cracks width. After we fill the crack there is a waiting period for the material to cure.
High-performance paint is used to achieve the right durability and aesthetic. Our licensed painting crew strictly follows paint manufacturers specifications.
Most Popular Colors For Stucco Painting:
Stucco adheres to any color as long as the surface is cleaned before paint is applied. Common colors for stucco painting are light colors such as tan, gray, white, and beige. Light colors reflect more UV radiation which protects the pigment from fading. Once the paint fades the paint no longer provides protection and the surface is prone to cracking.
Commercial exterior painting is performed after commercial stucco repair to provide a protective coating and match the area with the existing color.
Water intrusion can be caused by stucco cracks or unsealed joints around window frames. Our team performs window caulking and stucco crack repair.
If the source of a leak is unknown, leak detection is performed via infrared cameras or visual inspections. Once the source of the leak is known a solution can be provided.

I'm really happy with work RayAccess did for us on painting the exterior of Loews atrium. At first, I though it would be a nightmare project because of old paint condition and difficult access to some areas. But it turned out to be a very professional and smooth job! Thank you.

RayAccess painted our outdoor movie screen on a high-rise building in Downtown LA. With their Rope Access method, they saved us thousands of dollars in bringing a huge lift and blocking almost entire street. The job was done perfectly! Thank you so much!
