Repair stucco on block wall. Advice?


Hi there,

I've got to repair some stucco on my exterior block wall. First, I need to determine what the finish is actually called. I believe it's called heavy lace or sometimes they call it arizona texture. Although some of the pictures of a heavier skip trowel also resemble it as well. I have a picture of the wall here with my car keys for perspective. Can someone tell me what it is, how it was done professionally and how I would recreate it? I have a bit of knowledge on stucco and have the tools. I can even rent if needed. Im curious what type of stucco I would need as well. I know there's different mixes of aggregate in them....

Thanks for any advice...Chris

You must have good eyesight jomama.
Hold the trowel at an angle of about 45 degrees and apply small amounts of stucco to the wall. Go over it all lightly with the trowel held flatter.

Thanks. I have to agree the hyperlink is hard to see....

So, in your opinion, what is the finish actually called. Is it a skip trowel? Also, is there a specific type of stucco to be used for the different coats? I know there's typically three coats but I wasn't sure if the finish/texture coat would have more aggregate maybe?

The color of text that a link shows up in, is an option/preferences setting in the browser of the viewer. Dark blue against black can be hard to see. In Firefox it's under Content, ->Colors.
