Stucco plumbing patch most folks can use this information or pick up the phone and call a fella like me. Yea, this finish may seem complicated, but most finishes are much easier.
Why is it that most folks who write are women who say, I did it myself with these video instructions?
Is it women who are more patient and watch, retain the info, process it, and say, man, that’s easy?
Is it women who think I’ll be cheated if I hire someone?
Is it they don’t make as much dough as men; therefore, they do it themselves?
Or is it they just smarted the average man?
A remark by a woman about a day after this video was posted, Curious, but how are you then able to match that pink color? (Also love your work! I have been doing very small stucco repairs, and your vids never disappoint!!! I remember being quoted $600 for a repair that literally took me 15 minutes and cost me like $25!) That video is here, https://youtu.be/snU_bopiJq4/.
Things that make you go, hmmm.
For all you gals that DIY cheers and good for you.
By the way, both of my daughters can do this repair in less than an hour.
Since every exterior Stucco dash is different, the idea is to dash your wall as you regularly would.
Then this knock-down or the troweling over determines if your patch will match the original.
As a rule, try and see how soft the valleys are, as all new valleys don’t change with stucco dashing. If the valleys are soft or smooth looking, that means much primer and paint was applied over the years.
This is out of our control.
What I did was explain to the homeowner this concern.
Since your existing valleys are so soft, use a fat nap roller like an inch and a half when you roll your primer on.
Then apply the primer on thick, allow it to dry, then the next day or when dried.
Roll it on again; this allows the primer or paints to smooth out the valleys.
Tip guys, if you’re going to buy a ten-dollar roller, when done with it, use the same plastic it came in and insert it back again and wrap another plastic bag over that one.
That will stop the paint from drying up your new roller for about a month.
You can use the same one again the next day or a couple of weeks later.
Tip, folks When dashing, you will give a better dash stucco finish if you have a real Dash-Brush. If not, I have used a small whisk broom, a fat paintbrush, and a few other meetings to throw on a stucco dash finish.
