Common Causes of Stucco Cracks
Stucco cracks can be a significant red flag to the possible strength of your structure. We can help you decide the cause of the crack and how we can repair it.
Common causes of stucco cracks are:
- Hairline cracks: This narrow fracture has a 1/16th inch diameter or less. This is often caused by the foundation or new home settlement, like frames drying, an improper mud mixture, or earthquakes. This doesn’t necessarily pose a threat to your foundation unless it becomes a broader or deeper crack.
- Foam trim cracks: When the trim is added to your stucco, it should be connected with fiberglass mesh tape. If this isn’t correctly installed or not used at all, it will have a weak seam. These cracks are caused by the contraction and expansion during local temperature changes. If left alone, it can cause your stucco to be exposed to the elements and needs to be repaired.
- Cross-patterned cracks: These cracks look like a grid with overlapping gaps. This is caused by an improper installation of the lath framework that the stucco adheres to. This compromises the strength of your home, creating stress fractures. This will require the lath to be removed entirely and replaced.
- Diagonal line cracks: These issues typically appear around doors, window frames, and AC units. This is a clear sign of significant foundation damage and is a serious issue that needs to be taken care of immediately.

Drywall is vulnerable to cracks, dents, and holes that can be repaired easily depending on the size of the damage. Minor issues like dents or nail holes can be filled with spackle, sanded after it dries, and repainted. This service is often paired with our touch-up paint solutions so we can make your home look brand new.
More significant drywall issues are harder to repair. Anything four inches or more in size must be patched with new drywall. It’s essential that this is done by professionals, so we don’t damage your electrical system or other utilities. We’ll cut out the damaged area, install new support, cut the drywall patch, seal it, and then prepare it for repainting. Local San Diego Painting is here for you with expert drywall and stucco repairs in San Diego, so you have high-quality solutions.
