Started a job on the Village Hall today.
The bottom of the stucco on one flank was falling off about 20ft in length.
I reckon it was caused by the movement joint being left open.
The stucco was a really weak mix, and the lot is really damp.
The galvanised render stop was also rotten, so was replaced with an S/S one.

Finished the job at the weekend. 1 coat of SBR/cement mix bonding, then 3 coats of stucco and finished with the Tyrolean gun. I find it difficult to get a good match with Tyrolean. The original had large pieces spaced out, unlike normally a smaller, more even texture.

It is a lot heavier. The bit to the left was an extension, and that is pebble dash, where the stones are thrown on to the stucco and then pushed in slightly with a wooden float.
I originally thought that the finish on the main building was roughcast, where the stones are in the mix and thrown on the wall wet.

Bah..once it's painted no one will know......except Stuart and all of us here. When we organise a trip to Somerset we'll all go down to the village hall and see if we can find the spot
