Mailbox Repair Orlando
Our licensed and insured team of experts at Orlando Stucco Contractors is excited to report the addition of a new service to their repertoire: stucco mailbox repair and brick mailbox repair in Orlando, FL.
Since we know more about stucco and brick installation and repair than any other company in the Orlando, FL area, mailbox repair was a simple integration. That’s because it’s like we’re fixing the exterior of your mailbox, which is what we do every day just on a much smaller scale.
As the best way to install stucco is over a concrete masonry finish, due to the added stability and limited expansion/contraction, we are equally adept at brick installation and repair. That’s not to say that we can perform a high-quality installation or repair over wood-sheathed surfaces. These jobs just require a few additional steps before applying the stucco to reinforce the foundation layers.
We are simply applying our extensive knowledge to the repairing of mailboxes using the same materials we have mastered over many years.
The benefits remain present when discussing stucco mailbox repair, and the same goes for brick mailbox repair. The cost of brick or stucco is less compared to other styles of siding and, because layers of cement are used in the installation of both, they provide a strong and tight seal.
Ever thought how much it costs to repair a stucco or brick mailbox? Well, as there are few DIY options for these kinds of repairs, the cost will significantly increase due to one’s lack of experience and knowledge of the materials involved.
Acquiring the services of our experienced professionals at Orlando Stucco Contractors will ensure optimal performance and quality mailbox repair.
How Our Contractors Perform Stucco and Brick Mailbox Repairs
Orlando Stucco Contractors has a strict, step-by-step formula to installing and repairing stucco and brick masonry to the exterior of homes and buildings – and, now, we’ve extended our strategy to mailbox repair in and around Orlando, FL.
In order for our seasoned contractors to apply stucco, the surface must have a rough texture with the ability to absorb water. If neither are the case, we prep by washing the surface well. For a mailbox repair, specifically, we also carefully remove the loose or broken material to facilitate retention of the intact portions as well as recreate the strength of the initial foundational base.
Moisturize the Surface
To reduce the amount of water absorbed from the plaster, into the wall, we use a fog spray directly before we apply the first coat of plaster. This tactic helps to improve the suction bond and to prevent the surface from drying prematurely.
Combine the Scratch Coat
Based on our years of experience, we have come up with the best combination of ingredients for our scratch coating. For maximum results, we mix plastic cement with lime and plastic sand.
Apply the Scratch Coat
Our trained team applies the scratch coat using a notched trowel to create grooves that allow complete binding to the prepped surface. When the scratch coat is mostly hardened, they trowel on a second brown coat to strengthen further.
Place the Finishing Coat
After a 48 hour curing time, our experienced team creates the highest quality final finish with a textured roller.
We follow the same process for any stucco or brick masonry issues found inside or outside a home, as well as for both kinds of mailbox repair. For damaged or deteriorating mailboxes, our team takes even more care and pays greater attention to detail as the surfaces area is much smaller.
