About a month ago I hired a painter to do repair work on 2 wall areas of my house.

The repairs involved filling in 2 fair size cracks on the exterior stucco walls where the old and new parts of the house meet.

Well, as bad luck would have it, I just noticed a minor crack had developed on one of the recently repaired areas.

What I would like to know is how to repair this relatively minor crack. I attempted to contact the company that did the repair work but thus far have not received a response from those people.

The crack needs to be repaired before the rains come in a couple months.

There are several types of stucco, and any one of many different potential causes for the cracking could be the problem, with out more information or even seeing the problem in person it would be very difficult to give you an informed answer to this question.

Glen, so are you saying then that the best way to deal with the problem is to get the painter who did the job to come out and look at this new crack?

Have a stucco contractor look at it. This is not a painter’s expertise.
