How to Repair a Hole on a Stucco Surface

Hole in stucco that needs repair

Give your home a fresh new look! Take the time to make the necessary repairs to your exterior surfaces--it will be worth the effort.

For Best Results:

Follow the detailed steps in our how-to for techniques and advice on repairing a hole.

  1. Brush away loose debris.

    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.

  2. Prepare stucco patching material.

    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.

  3. Press patching material into damaged area.

    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.

  4. Remove excess material.

    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.

  5. Let dry.

    Step 5

    Remove any final dust or debris from the finished repair.
