How is Synthetic Stucco Installed?
Cement stucco and acrylic stucco starts the same way by installing building paper then galvanized lath over the paper and then applying stucco coating. For applying acrylic stucco the paint is first primed with a primer coat to seal small cracks or indents on the walls. The walls are then coated with acrylic stucco in a uniform manner.
Acrylic Stucco Repair
One of the major problems faced by acrylic stucco is water pooling behind the stucco coating on the wall. Since acrylic is a water-resistant and non-porous material, water cannot soak out of it. As a result it might pool within the insulation boards and cause it to get damaged. Proper assessment is very much required while repairing acrylic stucco. Only a trained expert will know what kind of repair is needed and how it should be done. Proper drainage should be given to any water accumulated in the insulation boards. The water should be dried out, mould or infestation should be repaired before applying a new layer of stucco.
