Southwest Minneapolis Stucco Project

This beautiful stucco home in Southwest Minneapolis is near Minnehaha Creek.  The stucco project started as new stucco installation to a small kitchen addition on the rear of the home.  Through the process of construction, the general contractor discovered other issues on the rear of the home…so we removed all of the stucco from the back of the house in order to allow for the necessary repairs. This also allowed the contractor to replace some windows, and they made repairs to the existing roof.  We then installed new stucco to the addition and to the rear of the home. The homeowners also decided to have insulation blown into the walls of the rest of the home, increasing their energy efficiency.  In order to fill the wall cavities with insulation, the insulation contractor needs to drill holes into the stucco and sheathing.  Next, they blow insulation into the wall cavities, and place a plug into the hole.  We then patch the stucco to fill the holes, preparing the walls for the new finish coat. The homeowners also decided that they wanted to refinish the stucco on the entire home.  The existing stucco on the home had been previously painted. We sandblasted the old stucco to remove the paint, and did some various other patching to prepare the stucco for a new finish coat.  A new stucco finish was then applied to this entire Southwest Minneapolis home, providing the homeowners with a beautifully updated exterior and enhancing this great Minneapolis neighborhood....
