How do I repair a stucco chimney?
I noticed that a chunk of about 1 square foot by 1 inch of stucco has fallen away from my chimney this week (From the top trim to about 3/4 of the way to the roof top). I obviously need to get this repaired. Should I have a repair person fix that spot only or repair the whole top of the Chimney. I cannot reach the top as it is two floors up (about 30 feet at least) and don't feel comfortable climbing to the top level of my two storey split with safety gear so I will not be able to do the repair myself. Do you recommend any repair company for this type of work. I was going to call a stucco contractor/company tomorrow but feel really at a loss of what to do.

It really isn't possible to tell from the ground, much less over the Internet, whether the spot should be repaired, or the repairs should be more extensive. Your contractor won't know until he gets up there and has a good look, and probably a good tap on the adjacent parts of the chimney. Loose stucco has a distinctly different sound. While home inspectors do not like to give out the names of contractors during an inspection, for fear of a conflict of interest, you might contact your home inspector now. He may be able to point you in the right direction, having local expertise.
