Should You Repair Stucco in the Winter?

We will visit your property and will determine what portion of the stucco needs to be repaired and will give you a free estimate.

How Does It Work?

To properly repair stucco throughout the winter, you need a source of heat. It is essential for water to evaporate during the application process. This can be challenging when it’s -30c outside. Stucco needs a warm, dry environment to prevent it from drying too slowly. If stucco does dry too slowly, it may have an uneven texture and colour.

It is common to build an enclosure around the stucco to keep the stucco warm and dry. This is done by using a heat source within the enclosure. Heaters are directed at the new stucco to keep it from freezing. This will allow it to cure properly.
