Let The Pros Handle Venetian Stucco Repair

March 26, 2018  

Working with Venetian stucco, sometimes referred to as Venetian plaster, means dealing with a material that is stronger than drywall material. If you find that there is any sort of cracking, nicks or damage, you need to be sure that you have the help of a professional on your side. This is a material where the repair work is not easy to take on and even the slightest problem with discoloration can end up showing through. For some stucco finishes, the mistakes can end up looking enhanced if you are not careful. This is when you need to be sure that you are working with a trained professional for all of your Venetian stucco repair in Mercer Island and the surrounding area.

Why Is Venetian Stucco Different?

This is a material that is either resin plaster or decorated polished lime. There are some people who may also refer to Venetian stucco as Italian plaster, decorative stucco or a faux finish. However, the real deal is actually plaster and is comprised of a mixture of the finely ground dust of marble, sand, slaked lime putty that has been aged, and special pigments to match the desired color. The result is a finish that is warm and resembles that of what you may see on the buildings in historic Tuscany.

There are some people that may prefer traditional plaster over Venetian plaster as it can have random variations in the tone. However, both colored plaster and Venetian plaster are known for being higher end alternatives to the more traditional wall coverings or paint finishes and both are long lasting and durable.

Why Use A Professional?

In order to get the desired effect, you need to have plenty of training when it comes to applying Venetian stucco. Not only is this a specialty craft to apply the stucco but it takes a great deal of training to even mix it properly. Working with a trained professional who has years of experience will give you the finished result that you are looking for. This is the type of repair job that will take careful attention to detail to ensure a total match to the existing stucco already in place.
