Stucco repair: We may tear down before filling it up
Yes! You heard it right. Sometimes if a crack is big enough, maybe big enough that even your credit card can be inserted in them or is a situation of broken and damaged cracks where the cracks become larger than usual.
In order to fill these cracks with a smooth finish its imperative that we open the crack a bit more than its regular size and chisel the edges to rub them completely and make the edges smooth enough that now those broken edges turn into a smooth finish, and this process allows the proper filling from the bottom of the crack.
