repair stucco paint

Hi, i just had my garage stuccoed, and the workers got the new stucco on my neighbors house which is also stuccoed. their stucco has paint mixed into the stucco when it was applied. How can i remove our stucco splatters from their wall without damaging their color.

Welcome to the forums!

Does your neighbor have colored stucco or is it painted. Paint can be touched up but I don't know that you can remove the errant stucco without damaging the substrate/finish. Since you paid to have the work done - it should be there responsibility to make it right! Have you already paid the workers?

How much stucco got on the neighbor's house? I wonder if you could match their stucco color with some thinned down latex paint and just paint the splatters ??

If I understand you rightly the stucco is integrally colored, that is the color is the full thickness of the finish coat. A few spatters can possibly be scraped off. As long as you don't scrape all the way through the finish you might get away with this. It could be painstaking work.

I have seen this done too. To cover up a sloppy job of painting the wood trim on a stucco house which incidentaly was stuccoed in 1952 and never painted, the owner found a chunk of the original stucco and took it to the paint store where they computer matched the flattest paint they had and then the owner painted over the sloppy paint and the new paint and stucco matched perfectly. Now after a few years it is unknown how well it will continue to match.
If you do this and cover only the spots the flatter the paint the better and the thinner the paint coat while still hiding the flaw the better.

How old is the neighbor's stucco? Maybe your "contractor" could sell them on a fog coat or a redash?
