Stucco Application in Bellevue

Adding a stucco façade to prepare your home or business for selling or altering its appearance strictly for aesthetic reasons is a popular occurrence today. Utilizing stucco or an exterior cladding is an excellent investment that can last for many years. Since 1924, Joseph J. Jefferson & Son, Inc. has supplied professional stucco application in Bellevue and nearby locations throughout Western Washington.

The procedures for applying stucco vary according to the current surface of your structure. Vinyl, wood, block, concrete and brick each have particular preparation methods required to ensure successful stucco bonding. The primary step for all finishes, however, is the effective removal of mold, mildew, dirt and debris. A pressure washer is typically used for this process but if the exterior is excessively soiled, a sandblaster may be appropriate.

After cleaning the surface, it must be allowed to dry completely and then a suitable bonding compound applied for the specific type of exterior. A coat of plain or tinted stucco is spread across the walls and then it is floated to maintain smoothness. When the final coat is added, texture may be employed by using a sponge or other material or a design fashioned into the damp stucco.

Stucco work in most situations requires several days from start to finish. After a curing period of about 6 weeks, the stucco may be painted for an even more original look.
