? Best stuff to fill holes in exterior stucco?

soozJuly 2, 2011

We're going to take down the shutters around 3 exterior front-facing windows and not replace them. They are "mounted" on the exterior of the house and held in place by rectangular-shaped wooden "blocks"--there are either two or four blocks behind each shutter. The blocks are screwed into the exterior of the house, and then the shutters are screwed into the blocks.

Once we remove the shutters, there will be holes in the stucco from where the blocks were mounted to the house. What kind of stuff do we use to patch the stucco? Personally, I'm a fan of Fix It All, but I don't know if that's the right stuff for this job.

Thanks for any help and info!

If the holes are small with little debris/cracking, I typically use pre-mix stucco patch by custom products, fill the hole after removing any loose debris. Then if you can get a half dollar sample somewhere off the house, have a quart of acrylic latex flat paint mixed up to match and dab/feather over the repair. You are likely to have staining from the blocks the shutters mounted to. After cleaning with some dirtex, you can dab those areas in as well.
