Single Coat Stucco

6901 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Harpoon
Anyone have any experience with the single coat stucco by Quikcrete and other companies with the fiberglass additives? Thinking about using it on my home instead of the usual 2 or 3 coats since I'll be doing it myself and it will go a lot faster. Anyone? Good/bad/indifferent?

I would think you still want at least 2 coats. One base coat and one finish coat.

Also, it is a lot cheaper to just buy premixed mortar, Type S, and add a hand full of fibers per bag.

Premixed stucco, 80#: $13-18.00 bucks

Premixed Type S mortar, 80#: $5-6.00 bucks
Fiber mesh, 1.5# (enough to do 40 bags of mortar): $6-10 bucks.

Now you really got me thinking about this with the Type S mortar.:(
