Stucco exteriors are some of the most durable and attractive services for homes. There’s a reason why they are so common throughout the American Southeast and other regions across the world. In general, stucco is very resistant to fire and only requires mild maintenance every once in a while.
Despite these advantages, stucco can still become damaged or weakened over time, necessitating repair.
When stucco is laid properly, it’s very long-lasting and attractive to the eye. It’s an ideal choice if your home is in hot or dry weather, or if you just like the look of the material. In the New Smyrna Beach area, there are lots of reasons why you might choose to use stucco for your home!
It’s important to repair stucco early on.
However, being an exterior surface, even the hardiest stucco surfaces and sidings will eventually need repair and maintenance. Stucco can outlast and outperform virtually any other type of siding on a home, but age and environmental wear and tear both eventually take their toll. Constant pressure and inclement weather can lead to cracks forming in your stucco, which can then spread and develop into holes. If left uncorrected, stucco cracks can tunnel into the waterproof sheeting beneath the siding.
Very quickly, problems can spiral out of control. Damaged stucco can lead to structural damage, leaks on the interior of your home, or even a general loss of integrity.

How do you know if your stucco needs repair?
There are lots of ways you can tell. The easiest is to just walk around your house and check all the siding services of your home. You can look for mold, cracks, or even discoloration; all three can be signed by your stucco has a crack or injury somewhere across its surface.
In most cases, cracks can develop if there’s ever any physical damage, like an impact to the exterior of your home. But shrinkage or thermal expansion can also cause stucco to flex and crack over time. In the summer weather of New Smyrna Beach and surrounding areas, it’s not uncommon for subpar stucco to crack after a few years.
Additionally, you can always smell any visible wounds or cracks in the stucco. If there’s mold growing beneath and out of sight, you should be able to smell this. Furthermore, you can always check the condition of your stucco by touching it. Stucco in good condition should not crumble or be particularly brittle beneath your fingertips. On the other hand, if it is brittle or crumbles, chances are good you’ll need to call stucco repair experts. Damp spots are another good sign that there’s water damage, either close by or somewhere else in the stucco layer of your home’s exterior.
In summary, stucco repairs might be needed because of:
- damage from the weather
- improper fitting of the stucco upon first application
- blunt damage to the exterior of your home
- house shifting from regular tectonic movement
- house expansion from hot summers – a common occurrence in the New Smyrna Beach and all of Volusia County.
