 Commercial Plaster and Stucco Repair


One of the wonderful things about many businesses here in the San Francisco area is the historic structures they occupy and maintain. The lively and beautiful history of the Bay Area is kept alive by these companies, and it adds to the flavor of life here. Of course, these older buildings require maintenance, often including plaster repair on the interior, and stucco repair on the exterior.

Commercial stucco and plaster need reparation when new cracks appear, or when existing cracks begin to widen or spread. Damage tends to come from three main sources.

Natural Structural Settling Causes Cracks in Stucco and Plaster

Over time, every kind of structure will undergo movement and settling. This can happen due to soil compaction, seasonal temperature variations, and the aging of building materials. Here in Oakland and San Francisco, of course, we also owe some of this to our friend, San Andreas!

Water Intrusion Damages Plaster and Stucco

Stucco, when properly maintained, does a great job keeping out water. However, if there is a roof, gutter, or caulking problem that lets water behind the stucco, it can cause deterioration. Likewise, interior plaster can be damaged by water, whether it comes from exterior leakage or plumbing failures.

Mechanical Impact Is a Common Cause of Damage to Plaster and Stucco

Mechanical damage is a term used by insurance companies when an impact causes damage, whether that is from a falling tree, an out-of-control vehicle, a careless furniture mover, or an unstable bookshelf. The resulting damage to plaster or stucco walls could be very minor, involving just a small nick or crack, or massive, requiring the rebuilding of a whole wall.

Repairing Commercial Stucco and Plaster

Whatever the source of the damage is, the walls of your business are probably repairable. In the case of smaller cracks, your painting contractor can fill them in with special caulk and then paint with elastomeric (flexible) paint. This hides the damage and prevents water and pest intrusion through the fissures.

In the case of more significant damage, there will need to be patching and retexturing. A reputable commercial painter will carefully cut back the damaged area in order to effect a solid, long-lasting repair. Once the integrity of the wall has been restored, the surface can be retextured to match the surrounding wall space. Finally, the wall should be painted, and it will look as good as new!

Customer Reviews

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

— Jeff M.

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

— Erin T.

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

— Daylan

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”
