Repair exterior stucco on house....


Hi there,

I had a freon leak on my central air and the technician had to cut out a 12"x"12 part of the stucco to repair the copper pipe (turns out the original a/c installer on our new house didn't use a tubing bender and instead just kinked the pipe instead (but that's another story)). So, I see that there is some stryofoam, wire mesh and some stucco with a texture finish. Does anyone have some advice on how to repair this? If you've ever seen a standard house in Nevada or Arizona, that is the type of rough texture that the wall has now.... Just looking for some tips on doing the stucco and creating the finish. I'm assuming it's a type of rough knockdown....

Thanks, Chris

Looks a bit like Tyrolean or pebble dash that's been painted.

Have a look at WBS dry dash(pebbledash) on the same site at the left.

That dry dash looks more like something with aggregate in it. Looking at my stucco, I don't see evidence of that. I think the first picture might look like it has it but the second picture shows a bit more like pure stucco...

Dry dash has the stones thrown on to the stucco, then pressed home with a wooden float. Wet dash has the stones in the mix before applying to the wall. Tyrolean needs a hand held machine to apply the stucco.

Looking at the 2nd photo again you may be able to use a splatterdash coat. This is a wet slurry made using about 3/1/1 sand/cement/lime and flicked onto the wall using a hand brush dipped into the mix. This is also used for a key sometimes for the wall before it has stucco applied as it has a rough texture which provides a good grip.

Thanks for helping me identify the finish...As a diy'er, it's always hard for me to find the right keywords to search for on the internet....
