Patching stucco to match existing exterior walls


Hello,

I am removing about 15 boards from the exterior of the house that run the height of the walls. The only problem is that these board were set into the stucco.

I will be painting the exterior of the house in about 3 weeks, so I would like to figure out how I will be patching these areas, in order to get it to match the existing stucco.

here are a few pictures of the issue:








Thank you.

Looks a bit like Tyrolean which is put on with a hand operated machine.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Most of the info I find on Tyrolean is in the UK.

I found a place online where I can order a flicker gun.

Reading about Tyrolean brought me to pebbledash & rough cast which also look similar. are there other names the material might go by so that I can try to find it locally? Or can I get the same results mixing things together



What I need to do is blend this patching before I paint the exterior in a few weeks. Would I just apply the new texture over the existing material after removing the boards?

I am thinking I may have to break away some of the edging from the existing texture. it seems that it will definitely stand out, its raised and flat where the texture came in contact with the boards. I'm guessing they put the boards in when the texture was wet or something. It looks like material was squished out from behind the boards to seat them in the walls.

Pebbledash can look a bit like Tyrolean if it's painted.
Here's a thread from another forum which might help.
