Too broad a question, kind of like, "How much does a car cost".

stucco


HOWEVER, if you're still of a mind to do it, you'll need couple of trowels ( i like pool trowels ), a scarifier, mason's brush, fiberglass sheeting, 4" grinder & diamond blade, 1/2" mixing drill ( a TRUE 1/2" [550rpm] ) + material & pigment if you mix your own color,,, w/any luck, you'll match the existing color on the house,,, IF you do happen to match it ( even closely ), consider it a miracle delivered by the stucco gawds

why they will have chosen to smile upon you, only they know
