I have had excellent results using products sold under the LaHabre or Parex labels (they are the same company) They sell a fiber re enforced stucco and a elastomeric coating that comes in a rainbow of colors.

Re: Parge Concrete Piers


The big names in stucco around here are Thoro and Pre-blend. Use a bonding coat of UGL or equivalent.

Re: Parge Concrete Piers


If they are fresh concrete poured in sonotubes, you may need to work on them before you parge them. Remove all traces of wax/form release, then use a bonding agent in the mix.

Re: Parge Concrete Piers


We use a product from Durock AllFacing call B2000 basecoat, sticks to damn near anything and if there is trace of form oil still present it won't bother the basecoat. Then use the same stucco that is on the house to match

How can you ever go wrong using a bonding agent?

Re: Parge Concrete Piers


Generally that is because they already have an integral one, but even then it can't hurt.

Re: Parge Concrete Piers


thankyou for the guidance .the supply house did not have premixed color but adding was easy . always wanted to take the ugly concrete look from my deck footings ,this was my oppurtunity to try it out. i had not taken a picture of the color of her house stucco .i was thinking pinkish orange .called the client from supply house.she said dark brown .dang she was there and got it wrong .stucco on her house is a red brown . so she has dark brown under the arbor and that matches the stain on her barn so all is well .
and yes i used a bonding agent .
