Since 1955 - Over 50 Years of Service
SAN DIEGO STUCCO CO. INC.
I would personally like to thank you for allowing us to give you an estimate to Re-Stucco your home.
I want to tell you about my family and our business, and the procedures we go through to make your stucco new again. As you probably know, San Diego Stucco is the oldest and largest Sandblast and Re-Stucco company in the county, but we are a family business and still give personal attention to each home that we do.
I started out helping my Dad on the weekends and when I graduated from school I went into the stucco business full time, and I have been in it ever since. I have surrounded myself with family and friends in our business. I have many long time employees with one purpose, and that is to make our family business the best. We believe we're offering a worthwhile service and doing it in a way that we can be proud of. And that's a good feeling!
I still enjoy stuccoing houses! I especially like to take an older home that really needs my service and make it look like new. I have seen houses undergo an amazing transformation, from the most neglected on the block to a home that is the nicest home on the block. I like to treat each home that, do as if it were my own. Our company has come a long way since my Dad started 55 years ago. In those days, we would sandblast a home, patch it, and then Re-Stucco, using the same material they use on a new houses. We gave a 10 year guarantee in those days.
Over the years, whenever problems would come up on jobs that we did we would always ask ourselves, Why did this happen? How can we prevent this from happening again? We made sure that we learned something every time we had a problem.
We were pioneers in the use of acrylic bonder for stucco that lasts, anti-alkaline solutions to neutralize alkali in the walls, fiberglass tape on large cracks to help bind the stucco better and silicone sealer for dirt stain problems. We now use a combination of take out ingredients and additives in Re-Stuccoing a home -- the most used by any company. We use our own combination of additives and materials that are better than anything we've used in the past.
Each complete job we do is inspected as it progresses by our Foreman and Customer Service men. When problems arise , for one reason or another, they are fixed promptly. We try our best to have the highest quality control possible. Whenever we find a better way -- we use it. It took us over 30 years of learning and improving in order to do the Re-Stuccoing job we do today.
My dad always told me to be the best I could be and I have tried to pass this along to my son and daughters. I believe that's why we are the best in our field - because we try harder. We specialize in Sandblast and Re-Stucco.
All of our men are specialists and take pride in their work. They know that we take pride in our reputation. I'm not saying that nothing can go wrong on our jobs, but I am saying with pride that we fix things right away if they go wrong.
We have 2 Customer Service men to take care of anything that comes up. Each of our crews cleans up behind themselves every day and we get compliments all the time about how nice our men are and how they put the customer's needs first. I want you always to be aware that we care about you and your home. You, as a satisfied customer, are our most valuable asset.
Your home is your most valuable possession and maintaining it is a must! When we Sandblast and Re-Stucco your home we fully expect it to last at least 30 years. You will still have to touch up your trim every 2 years or so, and do repairs, when necessary, to maintain the woodwork, but your stucco maintenance is virtually eliminated! A good quality Re-Stucco job is really an investment in your home and not an expense.
You must be cautious when choosing who you use to Re-Stucco your home because a cheap job, not done properly, can be a terrible waste of good money. We get called on to re-do jobs done by others at a rate of about one a week. It's very expensive to have to go through the whole process again, when it could have been done right the first time - if only the customer had taken more time to look into the company's background and see how long they had been in business, the quality of their work, do they have liability, things like that.
Many of our competitors use Re-Stucco as a sideline, as new construction is their business. Most don't believe that the full 17 step process is necessary, but I know better. We have been guaranteeing our work for the past 45 years, and I know what it takes to do a job that I can live with.
I hope when you make your choice as to who is going to Re-Stucco your home that you choose our company because you are convinced of the real value we offer in quality work well done. We have succeeded in our business by giving personal service and treating each home that we do as if it were our own.
I wish you all the best and look forward to my family helping your family. That's what it's all about, isn't it?
