Suggested Supplies

  • Bucket
  • Gloves
  • Ladder
  • Protective Apparel
  • Rags
  • Rubber Float
  • Stir Stick
  • Stucco Patch
  • Wire Brush
Step 1

Using a wire brush, remove any loose or peeling paint from the damaged area. Remove any dust or debris from the area with a lightly water-dampened rag.

Step 2

Following the manufacturer's directions on the label, mix the appropriate ratio of stucco patch and water in an empty plastic 5-gallon container.

This product dries quickly. Mix only enough stucco patch material for a 15-20 minute application.
Step 3

Using a rubber float, press the patching material into the damaged area. Spread no more than a ¼" thick layer into the hole. Allow it to set. Continue to apply stucco patch material in ¼" layers until it is flush with the existing surface.

For small holes, fill the damaged area with paintable high quality caulking material before continuing with the stucco patch.
Step 4

Before the last coat of patching material dries, remove any excess material using a clean rubber float in a circular sweeping motion. Blend the repaired area into the existing texture. Allow the area to dry.

Clean your tools directly after use.
Step 5

Remove any final dust or debris from the finished repair.
