    Default Stucco Render advice for repairs?

    Hi guys,

    I have some repairs to make in a textured "stucco" rendered wall.

    What mixture would you use to match the existing?

    Any advice on aggregate?

    I planned on chipping away 25-50mm from the horizontal cut to make the patch more organic, is that wise?

    Thanks everyone.

    * I should add the original wall is circa 1880 and the original aggregate looks like bitumen or coal.

    I've got the same stucco finish on my house, mine is on timber slats not bricks though. Mine seems to be coal aggregate as it is very light. I had several cracks where the stucco came away from the slats because it wasn't pushed far enough through to grab the gaps in the slats in a few places. It's done well though, it was built nearly 100 years ago. I used No More Gaps Exterior and Weatherboard, I just cleaned the surface, wet it down slightly with a spray bottle then applied the No More Gaps where the gaps were. I then had a bucket of water and dipped my fingers in and tooled the No More gaps to match the finish. You just add extra blobs to match the aggregate in the original stucco and run a wet sponge along the joins to blend it in. After a couple of coats of paint I can't even tell where I've made the repairs and this was done many years ago so it's standing up well.
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
