Cut the nozzle tip of the Quikrete Stucco Repair at an angle with a utility knife. The cut should match the width of the crack; then load into a standard caulk gun.

Stir Quikrete Pre-Mixed Stucco Patch using a margin trowel or putty knife.
Spread and texture the concrete patch to match the surrounding stucco. Then wet the trowel to achieve a smooth finish.
