Never Cut Corners with Our Craftsmanship
Not only are the cracks in your stucco unappealing, but they can be an indicator of other issues with your building. We’re here to help you know what may have caused the crack and repair it.
Common stucco cracks and their causes include:
- If the fracture is less than a 1/16th inch in diameter, it’s considered a hairline crack. Typically, this is caused by your foundation settling as frames dry. As long as this crack doesn’t grow, it’s not a threat to your foundation.
- Adding trim to your stucco provides a complete look but can cause foam trim cracks if improperly installed. Fiberglass mesh tape should connect the trim to your stucco to create a strong seam. Otherwise, seasonal temperature changes can warp the trim and leave the stucco exposed to the weather.
- Cross-patterned cracks mimic a grid with overlapping gaps and are caused by improper installation of the lath framework. This compromises the strength of your exterior because of poor adhesion leaving these stress fractures. Proper repair requires the lath to be removed and replaced before the stucco can be reapplied.
- Around doors and windows, you may notice diagonal line cracks, indicating severe foundation damage. This needs to be taken care of immediately before we can prep your exterior for the paint to prevent other issues. Trust our experienced professionals for expert stucco repair in Sacramento if you notice any of these cracks.

When stucco begins to blister, it’s common to think it isn’t your home but faulty paint that was incorrectly applied. However, incorrect stucco installation or curing can leave your exterior exposed, letting moisture damage your home.
Here are a few signs you’re dealing with water damage:
- Powdery residue
Initially, minor water damage may appear as white streaks or dark blotches in the paint, indicating moisture has developed beneath the color. Then your stucco will leave a powdery, white, or fluffy residue on the surface caused by water seeping through the material before evaporating. This leaves expanding salt on the surface, known as efflorescence. This residue is difficult to remove from the surface and can cause poor paint adhesion.
If moisture continues to collect, your stucco will begin to blister as salt expands below the painting surface to cause chipping. Even strong elastomeric paint is susceptible to this issue. Lastly, you’ll notice mold inside and outside of your home. Don’t continue to let water damage deteriorate the structure of your home or business.
