wall resurfacing

Hi- I have the following situation: I had some foundation problems following the construction of an addition to an older house (essentially the addition tilted away from the original structure, leaving a large vertical crack and some damage due to a bowed wall etc.). Anyway, the foundation has been piered and is now sound (ho, ho...), but the concrete wall remains cosmetically unattractive (mainly un-eveness around the area where it joins the main house). I'd like to resurface the whole wall. Any tips/ideas? Would a really thick stucco paint do the job?

1st, the crack should never be sealed w/anything but a flexible joint sealant applied over closed cell backer rod,,, if the wall's ugly, it can be resurfaced after any repairs such as grinding down high spots,,, we use polymer-modified resurfacing bag mix avail at any const supply house ( NOT an apron store ),,, wse'll use mechanically attached expanded wire mesh al a stucco or apply straight onto the properly prep'd conc - flat, vertical, & ovhd mortars are avail,,, you can ' build ' the repair up to 2",,, for more, do it in lifts,,, good luck !
