We are one of the few lath and plaster contractors that do still exist in San Diego, and we are available to restore old plaster walls, repair damage, or create the special acoustical effects associated with plaster walls and ceilings.  Our repair services include repairing cracks, crumbling, loose, or bulged stucco or plaster which may be caused by many things, including

  • building settlement
  • water penetration into the wall system as a result of poor flashing or caulking
  • differential expansion and contraction between the substrate and plaster
  • physical damage
  • inappropriate mixing, surface preparation or installation
  • lath attached without adequate clearance from sheathing
  • lath fasteners that are rusted, too short or spaced too far apart
  • vibration

Uh oh….. you’ve got a period lath and plaster ceiling or wall that needs some ‘love’ hmm? We’ve been working with lath and plaster for more than 35 years in San Diego, and we know plaster!  Most people agree that traditional lath and plaster ceilings (and walls), really add charm and enhance the feeling of living in a period house. Eventually though, old lath & plaster is prone to cracking, sagging or even falling down. The good news is that it’s often possible to repair lath & plaster ceilings (and walls) and make them last a good while longer (if you like the look and feel).

A Stucco  Technician For Any Size Job

Residential stucco repair and stucco patching are part science and part art…and both art and science are practiced daily by the highly skilled craftsmen at Nurse Stucco. In addition to the technical aspects of mixing the stucco components correctly, and applying the stucco to the area to be repaired or patched, the artistry comes into play with matching the exact texture to the surrounding areas, and blending the colors to render the repair invisible. Let the experts at Nurse Stucco provide their skill and experience to provide you with the perfect stucco repairs.

Just because you can find home improvement magazine articles and YouTube videos showing you how to do DIY stucco repair doesn’t mean repairing stucco is a fast or an easy job. Repairing stucco is tricky because of its layered construction. Minor crack repair may be repaired at the surface with acrylic fillers as a DIY project, but most stucco repairs involve getting down to the substrate and repairing outward to the surface to make sure that the repaired surface will prevent unwanted water intrusion.

Stucco Room Additions

If you have an older home, the interior walls may have been finished using lath & plaster instead of drywall. Most homes built prior to WWII (1950s) were built with lath and plaster walls, as opposed to the drywall method more commonly used in today’s construction.

While there’s not much call for lath and plaster additions these days with home remodelers choosing the newer building materials to comply with modern building codes, the tradition still lives on at Nurse Stucco. The professional plaster and stucco applicators are artists when it comes to historical building repairs… they know lath and plaster on the inside and stucco on the outside.

Whatever the age of your home, Nurse Stucco provides complete stucco and plaster services – from home makeovers including complete exterior re-stuccoing with new colors and textures, fog coating for permanent color, room additions with exact color and texture matching to your existing structure, architectural foam door and window trim additions, as well as existing stucco and plaster repairs.  Please do not hesitate to call us at (619) 561-7429 to discuss your stucco, lath, and plaster needs.
