Thanks for your help, it appears I need to figure out how to make the roof overhang look better before I can have anyone do the stucco work. A licensed stucco guy said he can do it for $680 and would do 3-5 inches or more if needed but he would need to look at it. He said for some jobs he's even had to do 10 inches because the paper was in bad shape. He would do a scratch, brown, and final texture/color matched coat.

I'm trying to find a roofing person that can make the original roof overhang or make what I have on there look better in case more stucco work is needed from that modification.

Here's a picture of the overhang remnant.

Hi, I had a licensed stucco person come and start the work using a three coat approach. I saw him remove some of the old stuff including the wood and flashing and then put paper and lath. He did a scratch and brown coat from what I can see in the same day. This was about two weeks ago and we've had some warm weather and colder in the last two weeks.

Do you know if the cracks I see in the picture are normal? The person will return to do the color coat but I'm not sure if the cracks I saw today are normal or do I need to tell him before he comes back out? I'm not sure when he's coming to do the final coat but probably soon.

Thanks.

I don't see any problem with those cracks you would want the scratch coat to crack rather than the finish. When the finish is applied make sure that it is moisture cured that is it should be misted to keep the humidity high do not let it dry out from the sum or wind you may need to mist 4 times a day for say 2 days or cover with damp cloth.

Oh ok thanks for helping me understand! I will let the stucco guy finish it up and will ask him about me keeping it damp while it cures.
