The stucco on your walls serves a dual purpose – protection and decoration. Every few years the stucco can deteriorate or get damaged due to various factors. The question that arises then is whether you should repair the damaged stucco yourself or avail stucco repair services from a contractor.
In this blog, we try to answer this question and hopefully by the end of it you will be able to decide for yourself if you want to get your hands dirty or contact stucco remediation contractors.
1. Safety first, always
Depending on the extent of damage to the stucco, you will have to use a plethora of tools to ensure your stucco is fixed right. This means a chance of accidental damage to the house but also a risk for you. Imagine climbing up to a height or mixing the stucco mixture without understanding the safety instructions. If you are not familiar with the safety procedure, it is best to call in the experts.
2. Time is of the essence
Another important reason to call in the experts is if you are running against time. If you want to get the stucco repaired and time is of the essence, you should waste no time and call in a contractor. If you are fine repairing the stucco at your own sweet pace, you can take it up as a project and do it yourself.
3. Money, money, money
If you have some experience fixing and repairing things around the house, fixing the stucco yourself can save you money. However, if you make a mistake, the consequences are just as bad. You may end up spending twice the amount of money if things don’t go quite as planned. At first, the stucco remediation cost stated by a professional may seem high, but trying to fix a shoddy repair will cost you more in the long run.
4. The finish matters
When we hire a professional to repair our stucco, we expect good finishing. This finishing doesn’t just mean the aesthetics but also how the stucco is applied. An improper installation of the stucco will be prone to damage and you will want to remove and repair it shortly after you have applied it. A professional will also notice other underlying issues with your walls or other parts of the house and recommend a holistic solution for the same.
