"
is a real professional. He was punctual and had all the materials he needed for the job. He was neat and clean and picked up all the debris." He also took time to match the stucco color even though I told him we were going to paint the house. I would not hesitate calling him in the future.

"An electrical box in the kitchen apparently needed more room than the void in the wall would allow, and the stucco lost. Advised by many to get a bucket of stucco" repair and do it myself but as i knew very little about stucco, i chose a pro (with Angie's help). This was money well spent. As i learned, stucco has a membrane (tar paper in my case) between it and the wall studs. Stucco is very porous to water, and as the moisture reaches the membrane, it is wicked to the bottom. In my case, that membrane was torn extensively. i could have sealed the cracks but this would not have stopped the water. The color match between the new and old stucco was not perfect at the beginning but now is indistinguishable. The person who did the repairs was polite and described what he was doing as he did it. While the first "coat" dried, he walked around the house looking for cracks and the like to "fix." Everything was done in a single day.

Stucco

Considering stucco? Make the exterior of your home stand out with this centuries-old siding technique by hiring the right contractor. Have some fun with stucco colors and textures or choose a similar-looking alternative, called EIFS.

It's not unusual for stucco exterior surfaces to develop cracks. Because stucco requires an individual approach, be careful about who you hire to work on it.

My sister-in-law uses brite white toothpaste and rubs it into those small holes. No prep, no sanding.

I've used wall liner (it applies like wallpaper only thicker) to cover a multitude of "wall sins" over the years. In my opinion it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. It doesn't look cheap or tacky, it's inexpensive, non-labor intensive and not messy to install.

I used it for the first time about 15 years ago to cover a faux brick tile on my lower kitchen walls that couldn't be removed. It was either tear the wall down or take a chance on $40 worth of wall liner. It did the job beautifully and lasted. Since then I've used it to cover paneling, a badly gouged wall after a kitchen remodel and a wall that looked like a pegboard after floor to ceiling shelving was removed.

Friends and family (and realtors!) have been amazed by the transformation after applying this simple inexpensive product. 

?

Remember, you not only have to remove the popcorn texture, but also redo the ceiling in some other texture.

Price will depend on several factors:

1) how much the contractor you choose hates removing popcorn or textured ceilings - some charge $1 or so/SF extra just because they hate it. There are even some who bid total drywall replacement cheaper than removing the popcorn, so you have to first find contractors who are happy to do that work, or your prices will be out of the realistic range

2) if the popcorn predates about 1990, then it could likely have asbestos in it, which doubles or triples the price, and in many cases uncapsulating it with a spray coating and then removing the drywall entirely is actually cheaper than all the protective measures necessary if it is scraped off. 

3) whether the popcorn is primarily gypsum and vermiculite (comes off REAL easy) or was the plaster of paris variety, which takes a fair amount of soaking to soften it enough to scrape off

4) what type of finish you are replacing it with - if a textured ceiling, slapcoat, knockdown finish or paneling, not real problem. If you want to go with a perfectly smooth ceiling (generally a bad idea as any variations in the drywall on a ceiling surface really shows up dramatically), then it will demand a lot of care in preparing the scraped surface, and a complete surface drywall compound skim coat to smooth out the scrapes and gouges from the removal process.

5) what underlying conditions are - if there is a lot of furniture to move around (should go to adjacent rooms) or cover and work around, high-quality rug or hardwood floor to super-protect or such, will drive cost up.

I have seen costs run from as low as $0.60/SF to $1.25/SF (for removal only). Generally, remove and recoat with a surface texture of some kind (anything but smooth) and paint will run you about $2.50-3.50/SF.

Now the bad news - if asbestos containing, can run from $5-10/SF. Many homeowners in that situation go the other legal route - have it encapsulated with an asbestos-rated sealant by an asbestos contractor, then paint it and leave it for the next homeowner to decide what to do about it. Some contractors encapsulate it and then put a 1/4" thick drywall layer over it - this usually looks like a disaster unless it has a VERY rough textured finish on it, because putting drywall sheet over a rough surface like popcorn invariably means a wavy surface commonly looks like a gently rolling ocean surface.

jr (contracters son) and another gentleman came early, did exactly what was needed, and was very forthright in answering all my questions
they were professional, talented, and cleaned up flawlessly. The job they did came out great, I have since painted over the new stucco, and it looks as good as new. They came recomended to me by someone else in my community (with a similar problem) and I definatly would (and already have) recomend them to others.

was pleasant and easy to work with. He was on time and went one further by connecting me with a great window company who installed hurricane impact windows. Once the windows were replaced,

had his crew frame out the windows with a nice stucco frame. He gave us a few stucco finish types to select from and once we decided, the job went smoothly. His stucco crew was friendly, professional and quick. We had one single issue at the end of the project but was worked out between us. If you need a stucco job

Everything went perfect other than just having to reschedule due to weather -

is good, but I'm afraid he can't change the weather!

was early, evaluated all the problem areas and went to work. He even found a few additional issues along the way and took care of them, too. Saying - well, I was there and it was a quick fix! I've dealt with plenty of contractors in the past that would nickel and dime you by finding additional issues and make more money off you -

just fixed them. I was impressed with his knowledge and the time he spent explaining his process to me. I really felt like I got my money's worth and then some. He even gave me some recommendations for some other work that I'm going to have done at the house (by a different contractor). Very good guy, good at what he does and I'll definitely be calling him for any issues I have in the future!

The provider and his employees were very professional . We had several snow days that interrupted the placing of gutters yet the provider keep in contact with us letting us know what was happening. The employees worked diligently and kept the area clean. After the work was done Provider came out to check on work done and had us walk around to inspect work. I was very pleased with the overall professionalism and completion of work.

This was an absolutely horrible experience. They kept going on about this special material that was much more expensive. They advertised in the paper that they were recommended by Angie's List. It turns out that they are not.

There were problems with leeching of a white substance where the ground and roof seeped water.
Santa Maria Stucco Contractors Provider Name Locked
consulted with us about adding a gutter and downspouts to prevent further water damage. Then the crew continued coming back to clean off the white substance, "fog" the wall, and wet it down. The result is great! They did a wonderful job and I highly recommend them. In fact, I have referred neighbors to them already.
