South Minneapolis Stucco Project

The homeowners of this home in Hale neighborhood of Minneapolis contacted us for a free estimate to repair and refinish the stucco on their house.  Nothing had been done to the stucco in almost 80 years, as the stucco was original from when the home was built.  The stucco was still in pretty good condition…which definitely speaks to the durability of stucco!  The homes in this Minneapolis neighborhood were built in the 1920’s and earlier, with many of them having the original stucco on their exteriors.  Stucco is made to last fifty years and more, and often the stucco can be refinished after a few minor repairs to make the homes look brand new again! This project required a few repairs before the stucco could be refinished.  We repaired some larger cracks, a couple of areas on the foundation, and an area of stucco above the garage on the rear of the home.  Once the stucco was repaired, and the patches had time to dry and cure, we returned to apply the finish coats.  We used the stucco color Parchment, using a Pebble Dash texture.  This classic South Minneapolis home looked brand new after the stucco was completed, and will be the envy of the rest of the stucco homes on their block!...
