 How Much Does Stucco Repair Cost in San Diego?

Thanks to its dura­bil­i­ty and aes­thet­ic appeal, stuc­co is a pop­u­lar exte­ri­or mate­r­i­al here in San Diego. It’s rel­a­tive­ly low main­te­nance, too. 

Even­tu­al­ly, how­ev­er, stuc­co cracks will inevitably appear as your home shifts and set­tles over time. Beyond nat­ur­al set­tling, stuc­co can be worn and dam­aged too, like any oth­er mate­r­i­al, even by some­thing as seem­ing­ly harm­less as expo­sure to a water sprin­kler. So, the big ques­tion now is: how much does it cost to repair stucco? 

It depends on a vari­ety of fac­tors, as you might imag­ine. But to help give you some prac­ti­cal insight and exam­ples, let’s share a few sam­ple price points. 

Ball­park cost for stuc­co repair in San Diego

  • Low end: for minor cracks and repairs, maybe from that sprin­kler dam­age we men­tioned, the price will like­ly be $200 – 300

  • High­er end: if you have exten­sive crack­ing, maybe with large areas where the stuc­co is peel­ing away from your home, the repairs could take mul­ti­ple days and cost $1,500 – 2,500 or more.

What impacts the cost of stuc­co repairs?

It real­ly all comes down to how much stuc­co needs to be repaired and the sever­i­ty of the dam­age. Small cracks are quick and rel­a­tive­ly easy to patch, while wide­spread dam­age, or a fail­ing tex-coat that was applied 20 – 30 years ago, involves a lot of time and exper­tise to repair. 

Can you see a stuc­co repair after it’s completed?

We wish that a seam­less repair can be guar­an­teed, but in real­i­ty it’s very dif­fi­cult to per­fect­ly repair stuc­co and match it to the sur­round­ing tex­ture. Unless the entire area is re-stuc­coed, cor­ner to cor­ner, there will often be faint scars” of where the repair took place. 

Stuc­co repair FAQs:

Q: How can I deter­mine if my stuc­co needs repair?

Our best rule of thumb is that if the crack is big enough to fit a cred­it card inside, it needs to be repaired. Hair­line cracks can like­ly wait, but any­thing big­ger should be addressed.

Q: Can I repair stuc­co on my own?

Repair­ing stuc­co is a com­plex process that requires spe­cial­ized knowl­edge and skills. While minor touch-ups or small patch repairs may be man­age­able for home­own­ers with some DIY expe­ri­ence, it’s gen­er­al­ly rec­om­mend­ed to hire a pro­fes­sion­al for more exten­sive repairs.

Q: How long does stuc­co repair typ­i­cal­ly take?

It total­ly depends on the extent of the dam­age and the com­plex­i­ty of the project. Small repairs in local­ized areas may be com­plet­ed in a few hours or a day, while more exten­sive repairs can take sev­er­al days or even longer. 

Q: Are there any pre­ven­tive mea­sures I can take to avoid future stuc­co damage? 


  • Ensure prop­er drainage around your home to pre­vent water from pool­ing against the stucco. 

  • Reg­u­lar­ly inspect and main­tain sprin­kler sys­tems to pre­vent water expo­sure to the stucco. 

  • Prompt­ly address any signs of dam­age or issues to pre­vent them from grow­ing into more exten­sive problems.

Q: Can stuc­co repair affect the ener­gy effi­cien­cy of my home? 

Stuc­co pro­vides insu­la­tion and helps reg­u­late tem­per­a­ture, improv­ing ener­gy effi­cien­cy. It stands to rea­son then that if there are sig­nif­i­cant cracks or gaps, it can com­pro­mise over­all effi­cien­cy. Plus, these weak points can let in mois­ture and pests, caus­ing even more exten­sive damage.
