I have to patch parts of the exterior stucco where I put in new windows.
I have never done stucco before, but I figure it can't be all that
different from everything else I do with trowels.
Given that I want to be able to by supplies incrementally from Home
Depot or Lowe's, what should I look for?
Some stucco advertises that they have fiberglass in it for extra
durability. Is that something I would want?
Bags of stucco. But there are better places to go.
I don't know. What do you think you want? Do you need it? I don't
know - don't know where you're located and the climate, don't know
what type of stucco you have on the house now, don't know whether the
house is painted and you'll be painting over the patches, don't know
if you'll be trying to match the existing stucco in color, etc.
Do you have a reason to go with bagged as opposed to redi-mix?
The stucco is in abq, nm, where everything is stucco. People who re-do
it just put a skim coat over the entire existing thing. Fiberglass
sounds good since it sounds more resistant to cracking.
I'm gonna put a layer of brick around the top, as frequently happens in
updates like this. I'd also be searching for the best methods to do
that, but first things first.
