Stucco Contractors In San Jose, How Do I Choose?

Shares

There was so much information on many different websites in regards to stucco contractors in and around the San Jose area. I checked Yelp’s website, Homeadvisor.com, YellowPages.com, BBB’s site and a couple of other online sources and compiled what I found on this page.

There were a lot of listings and some great feedback from people who have used companies in the past with great success and you should take a look at what they had to say. I also plan on gathering additional information in the future for a more thoroughly researched post, so be sure to check back in.




Some of the good things:

  • There were a ton of reviews left on Yelp’s website for so many different companies, a lot more than I usually see. With all of these reviews and all of the feedback, picking a company to repair or install your stucco just got way easier.
  • I noticed that there were a number of reviews that had very detailed accounts of their experiences and the work performed, which is very helpful and says a lot more than a more general type of comment.

Some of the bad things:

  • Even though there were a lot of helpful reviews, some were general in nature (“They did a great job!”), which you can’t always avoid but is a downside for sure.
  • With this much feedback I would have liked to seen more reviews on a couple of the companies. Don’t get me wrong, there were a good amount of reviews and many different companies were recommended but a couple of them only had two or three reviews in total.

Stucco Contractors In The Chicago Area On YellowPages.com

Yellow Pages

Some of the good stuff:

  • YP.com had a ton of different plastering and stucco contractors listed but unfortunately only one company have a review that I could go off of the list here in this section.

Some of the bad stuff:

  • The obvious downside to what I found on Yellow Pages website was the fact that there was only one company that had any sort of reviews at all and there is only one of them at that.

Home Advisor’s Website:

Home Advisor

I found one company that was specifically a stucco company and had to dig through reviews left for one company to find stucco related repairs, seeing as how they were a general contractor. The experience was somewhat disappointing because I did not find a lot of companies but the one I found had great reviews with an excellent reputation.

Some Positives:

  • The reviews that were left by clients were very detailed in nature and described the scope of the work in a way that really painted a picture for me on what to expect.

Some Negatives:

  • Home advisor usually has a pretty good spread of contractors and this was also the case in the San Jose area. I would’ve liked to seen more than just two contractors listed for the reviews were halfway decent and really gave a good picture of the work performed and the quality that was used.

  • Jobs Performed: From the reviews left nearly all the jobs done were for either patch work or entire house recoats.
  • Pros: Raving reviews about work ethic, time it took to do the job, the standards to which White Knight Plastering holds to themselves when doing jobs seems to be very important to them.
  • Cons: I really couldn’t find any cons. They seem to be reliable and trustworthy.

About the Author The Stucco Guy

My name is Ryan and I have been in the construction trades for many years now and I feel that there is a huge "knowledge gap" when it comes to particular trades.... like stucco. I made this site to inform others about the simplicity of the art and that many people can do stucco themselves, if they put their minds to it. I hope you find the information here useful and please don't hesitate to contact me by leaving a comment. Thanks for stopping by!
