Flagstaff and Prescott Stucco
Rosie on the House only refers contractors who have successfully made it through our rigorous prescreening process. We call the contractors we recommend "partners" because we believe they support our vision of being every Prescott homeowner's best friend. Like us, they're here to protect and serve homeowners. If you know any contractors who you think can pass our prequalification process, nominate them here, or have them fill out our prequalification form. Please note that filling out the form does not guarantee that the contractor will be accepted into our trusted Referral Network. In fact, fewer than 25 percent of contractors who fill out the form never become Rosie on the House partners.

All masonry walls, including concrete-based stucco, are prone to efflorescence when they get wet. The powdery discoloration occurs when the wet walls dry out, pulling the salt and lime that is part of the stucco to the surface of your home’s exterior walls.
