A chimney can be made out of a variety of materials, and we have extensive experience servicing all types of chimney and fireplace systems. When it comes to questions of different materials and repairs, there is no more knowledgeable team to turn to than TOR Chimney. So let’s talk about stucco vs stone repairs.
Stucco vs Stone Repairs
Stucco is a modern, versatile material that is easier to apply and cheaper to install than professional stonework. However, cracks in stucco cannot typically be mended by filling in the gaps. Because these cracks are faults in the integrity of the material, all cracked and chipped material must be removed entirely before more stucco is applied. This slightly inflates the workload and cost of the typically easier and cheaper material.
Stonework, on the other hand, can often be patched with mortar. Depending on the size and severity of the repair, some stone may need to be replaced. The price and time length of the job varies a great deal because of this.
For either job, you should have a consultation with a professional to determine your exact needs. All homes and jobs are unique, so they should be assessed professionally before any decisions are made. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the safety of your home.
