"He took advantage of a single female who believed he would complete the work he promised in the time he promised. He has taken my money and only completed about" half of the project. The half he completed is poor workmanship and he caused more damage to my property that I now to pay to have fix. I had to hire a lawyer to hopefully recoup some of my money so I can get the project complete. DO NOT HIRE CAPTIAL CONSTRUCTION OR

"We hired
, owner of Southwestern Stucco Services, to restucco the exterior of our house. He sent an estimate on April 13; we contacted him" on June 10 to schedule the work; and his crew began work on June 24. Initially things seemed good;
was communicative, the crew arrived on time, and seemed friendly and accommodating. We gave him an initial check for half the estimate of $9250 (not including tax). The first problem was when the crew dumped leftover concrete on the lawn. I asked them not to do that, and they said they wouldn’t. I cleaned up the spill myself—which had already dried and hardened—and transplanted grass plugs to cover the bare patch. The second problem was with the external light fixtures.
had told me that the crew would take down the light fixtures,
windows and other items, and trench around the base of the house as part of the prep. But we noticed the crew was simply stuccoing over the light fixtures at the back of the house; so we went out at lunch and took the fixtures down ourselves. They were covered in stucco, so I had to clean them. However, we forgot to take down the security lights at the front of the house; those are now cemented to the house. The crew stuccoed over the mounting brackets for the lights, so we had to chip off all the stucco before we could put the light fixtures back up. They also stuccoed shut two water spigots, which I had to chip out with a chisel and hammer. The third problem was at the end of the first week, when the crew was working at the side of the house where we have 2 compressor units for the AC. The crew set up a catwalk about 4 inches above the cooling fan of one of the units, and left it there when they quit work mid-day Saturday. The unit overheated and shut itself down. I noticed this late Sunday morning when the inside of the house was 78 degrees, and the AC was set at 72. I also found that the drain hose (which ended about 3 feet from the house wall) was stuccoed shut. I told
that the AC unit was busted when he came by early the following week, and told him that we would have to call out a repairman. He acknowledged this, and he noted that the drain house should have been masked. Repairs for the AC unit came to $170, which was not nearly as bad as it could have been. The blocked drain hose caused the condensation pump to burn out, and it had to be replaced, but the cooling fan had a failsafe switch inside the housing and only needed to be reset. The fourth problem was when we found that the crew was using the 1 ½” landscaping stones for a wastewater dump; the stones are now completely covered in dried concrete. When I saw the crew doing this, I asked them not to; and they said no problem, and they would clean it up. They didn’t. I have now removed most of it myself, and am waiting to have it hauled off as it is only good for fill at this point. It is going to cost about $260 for the 2 cubic yards of replacement landscaping stones. The sixth problem is the front wall of the house, the last wall that the crew finished. Within 72 hours of the crew’s last day, this wall showed long horizontal cracks. Four weeks later, there are numerous horizontal cracks running the entire length of the wall, as well as vertical cracks from the corners of the windows to the ground, and a bulging area near the ground. The cracks are actually big enough that they are visible from the street, some 40 feet away. The crew had taken the extra step of completely recovering this wall in building paper and chicken wire, because underneath was half wood siding, half painted-over stucco, so we were surprised to see so much cracking. When the crew finished work,
was out of town on a 10-day vacation. He did not inspect any of the finished work. We did not hand over the check for the balance due to the crew; we had told
that when he got back in town we would let him know what the repairs cost and we could settle up then. He agreed.
contacted us on
13 and asked for payment. We let him know that same day what the AC repairs and landscaping stone replacement would cost us, gave him a copy of the repair invoice, and asked that he adjust the invoice to reflect those costs. I also told him that while most of the work was fine, there was a lot of cracking on the front wall of the house and asked that he come out and look at it.
agreed to cover the costs for our repairs and sent an adjusted invoice on
14, but he did not acknowledge our request that he come check the wall that was cracking.
said he could not come to the house to collect the check because he was dealing with a family emergency, and asked that we mail the check. We said OK, and asked again about the cracking. He said he would come look at it once he had his check (in hindsight, this was a huge red flag). We sent
a check via Wells
bill pay on
14, the same day that we received the adjusted invoice. We emailed him to let him know the check was on its way and asked again that he come check the cracking as soon as his family situation allowed.
still did not acknowledge our concern about the cracking. On
20
emailed us that he had not received his check. We checked with the bank, and they confirmed that the check had been sent. We also asked again to have
check the cracking.
then acknowledged receiving the check, but did not respond to our request that he come check the cracking. We asked again, and received the following reply: "As per the promptness of payment, give me about 3 weeks." This initiated a long email exchange in which, among other things,
accused us of lying about the damage to the AC compressor, said he did not intend to come out at all because he "did not want to be blamed for anything else," and suggested that we hire some of his guys ourselves and pay them to come out and redo the work. We tried for more than two weeks to get him to agree to come out and at least look at the front wall, to no avail. I have asked repeatedly if he intends to honor the 5-year warranty he gave us on the work, and he refuses to address it. I am now so frustrated that I gave in and filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, but I expect that we will have to hire another stucco contractor to either repair or cover the cracking. We still have to have the trim painted, and I can't wait all summer to resolve issues with this one contractor to finish all the other work. While most of the stucco work looks fine, it is pretty uneven overall; and the crew did so much damage, and with the one wall that is already failing, and the unfathomable belligerence of the owner, I would never in a million years recommend hiring this contractor.

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.

Stucco, Painting - Exterior, Handymen

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.

I removed wood paneling on my newly purchased house (house from the 70's) and it was unfinished underneath the paneling. I hired

I can’t say enough good things about
Cary Stucco Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Our home looks beautiful. Pat’s crew did an outstanding job. They were prompt, showed up when they said they would and cleaned up each time they were here. The job encompassed new stucco on the front of the house after we removed old wood siding. They matched the existing stucco texture so perfectly, you can’t tell where the old meets the new. Pat was easy to work with and proved to be a contractor with integrity, which seems to be hard to come by anymore. I can recommend

I called the company last Friday. The man who answered the phone was very friendly and told me to text him a photo of the area I needed repaired and he'd send me an estimate. I sent the photo the following Monday. He got back to me on Wednesday and gave a $150 quote for the small spot to be repaired.
I said let's go ahead, when is a good time to get it done? He replied anytime on Friday would be good. So I set up a time with him and took time off work to be there.
Today, at the appointed time, his father showed up and told me he thought a bigger area should be repaired, for $400, and he couldn't do that today. I decided I just wanted the original area taken care of, could he go ahead and do it today? He said he didn't have time to do it today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe at noon. But would it be ok if it was some time after noon?
That is when I said no, I'm done. I took time off work to be there today, and he wasted my time, and I could not even be sure he'd show up tomorrow. Trust is broken.
