How to patch stucco


Step 1. Remove loose material from the repair area, using a wire brush. If the underlying metal lath has any rust, brush this away, too.

 

Step 2. Use a broad putty knife or small trowel to apply premixed stucco repair compound to the repair area, with enough depth to slightly overfill the depression.

 

Step 3. Smooth out the repair area with your knife or trowel, taking care to make the borders of the repair blend smoothly into the surrounding wall surface. Use a whisk broom or trowel to duplicate the texture of the wall.

 

Step 4. If you have any bigger patch areas, chip away the loose stucco, cut away the loose metal lath, then cut and attach new lath to the wall sheathing.
