Howdy guys and gals, The home owner installed a few new windows around the home. I was hired to repair the new stucco with a new stucco finish to match the existing stucco finish. I have completed about 500 to 1000 window patches in may years and haven’t found one that I couldn’t match. Some do take me a bit longer than others but I blend in window very well. Thanks for reading and have a groovy day!

What’s The right Stucco for your needs?
May you work with plastering contractors guys who have some time in for the answer, as Old Kirk says, material knowledge is 70% of being a well rounded stucco guy,
The other 30% is application.
For this stucco base coat I chose 690 BMI reinforced fibered cement plaster.
Howdy all you ambitious guys and gals, Jason”my Son” and I have another tip of the week for you homeowners who wish learn
not only how to repair and or fix your biggest investment and source of pleasure, your home, and have fun while completing these simpler than you think plaster or stucco repairs.

This is the site to learn at least all the stucco and plastering repairs of your desires.
I imagined a large room with zip lines going from one wall to anther for my kids to learn to walk on their hands while there legs were supported, for the heck of it.
Why, Because it was my house and I was not limited to anything, only a lack of imagination.
The walls I have built or moved are sort of like the guy in the iron man movie, If I imagined any idea no matter how untraditional or weird to some, I built it, “Thus” so can you.
I titled this video, “What’s The right Stucco for you” because naturally if you ask 20 different stucco guys what they would skim coat this home with you will more than likely get 20 different answers.
I personally would have chosen this same stucco system if this were my own home, after more than 30 years of applying possible ever stucco system available.
There are many more reasons to use this particular BMI 690 cement reinforced fibered plaster material such as skim coating, bricks or cinderblocks, or for the process of changing ones heavy exterior stucco texture into one thats very smooth, this material is perfect for this reason as the sand is finer and apple like whipping cream.
Of course new construction over entering sheathing with paper and wire is common too.

What more does a righteous person desire? Surly the thought of sitting under a coconut tree in the Bahamas with you feet in the warm sand while sipping margarita’s with tiny umbrellas can’t be more rewarding than understanding lath and plaster?
If by chance you are considering this material call Rui Bronze he is on Linkedin and many more sites, or Google his name, he will get you set up with all the 690 BMI reinforced fibered cement plaster,
needed to get started, as well as their mixers too, complete with a fella the first day to teach you how to use it and for you contractor’s, his guy, “Jose” will teach you how to operate one of their popular silos.
The 690 BMI reinforced fibered cement plaster is perfect for new homes especially as it’s a combination of extremely strong and fast setting portland cement with lime added, lime provides a bit more flexibility which the average contractor is no longer aware of as it been phased out in the last 50 years as most folks no longer understand the importance

Howdy guy and gals, in these pictures my son and I lathed all the new openings such as windows, doors, and corner areas where the stucco membrane failed. We re-lathed and applied 2 coats of stucco with the finish coat to match the existing texture.
Thank you for reading and have a groovy day!
