Small stucco job.

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.
