Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Howdy Bill Shannon, Thats really not necessary, If you have used at least 3,000 psi and it didn't come off it's there to stay, simply allow the wall to dry, you may notice some outer edges of the paint loosening, this is normal, scrape the loose stucco or paint off with a putty knife and re-bond these areas, then apply your skim coat. If you feel strongly the need to attach a 3.4 mesh self furred metal lath then do so, however, ol kirk would not do this, unless the walls are compromised. Best wishes,

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Morning Michael Donnelly, Google changed it's comment section so I hope you will get this, if your at Home Depot pickup some set, Don't over mix, next buy a hawk and trowel and a green float. cost, under a hundred bucks. best wishes, kirk giordano plastering

Ken Swope: Would be great to see what you were doing most of the time.....next time consider your shadow!

crucibull: Good stuff as always Kirk. What are your thoughts on using a type-s masonary mix for a scratch and brown and then the quikcrete finish stucco product for the finish. I'm thinking about a DIY here at my house. I've also thought at EIFS

T COVEY: Kirk, Great videos. I am going to repair a stucco'd block wall. There is a section that is about 10 ft x 5 ft where the stucco has failed. I have broken off the old stucco and have cleaned the block wall very well. I only want to apply one coat of stucco and I would like to use Quikrete Stucco. My only question is that Quikrete sells a "basecoat" stucco and also sells a "finish" coat stucco. What product should I use? The labels on all of the stucco bags at Home Depot are very confusing. Thanks!

Mo: Just finished my first stucco job ever . Harder than the it looks and I'm a block mason . Props to you guys !

glacierbox: Kirk, much appreciated...learned a lot. Still can't understand how some people complain about your FREE educational videos. They're higher quality than 99% of what is on YouTube...

Saulo Carruso: I meant to say go clean some tools instead

Saulo Carruso: Great video but ur camera man sucks tell him to put the camera down and go each some tools out hopefully his better at that.

godwhomismike: Added to favorites. I am a first time home owner, and the stucco on the foundation is breaking apart, and the cinderblock is now exposed on a 3 ft by 3 ft section after this winter. I am going to have to do this immediately as soon as it warms up. 

Bill Shannon: Kirk, hello. I am a subscriber. first post here. I have blasted and scraped all of the paint off my cinderblock but there is some very tough paint that refuses to go. If I put down lathe and a coat of portland cement before the plaster would that eliminate any potential bonding issues due to the remaining paint? Is there a way to stucco over painted cinderblock? Thank you.

Saulo Carruso: Great video but ur camera man sucks tell him to put the camera down and go each some tools out hopefully his better at that.

asdfdsasdfasdfasdfa: kirk! real men don't drink ;-) best wishes...

Christopher Herring: Hi Kirk, enjoyed the education from your many youtube videos. Preparing to stucco over a cement slap (which covers cinder block) - a bbq island. Questions - I don't see the use of lime in your videos? With straight edges I see no need for any metal sheathing, edging, etc. - assumption correction? Finally, since we are dealing with concrete I presume no added weeping barrier is necessary? Thanks again for the advise and expertise. 

elysian war: hey my house has concretre blocks that are painted with housepain can i stucco on that or if not what do i do

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hey dude, It takes skill & time in.Lime sticks extremely well to the surface of the straw bales, and chicken wire is therefore not required as it is when using a cement stucco. Portland cement will not stick well to the bale surface and chicken wire must be used and in fact is required by most building codes. Lime retards the growth of mold (a serious problem in straw bale homes if there are any moisture problems). Portland cement will not retard the growth of mold. Kirk Giordano plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Mr Coreyp, no worries. I don't respect a man who doesn’t drink. First, pressure wash your block wall, and then apply the bonding agent. I assume you going to apply stucco after the bonding agent? Have a good evening and sorry for the delayed response. I don’t go on this site every day! Kirk Giordano plastering

SoulDaddy55: Always a good idea to not have shadow covering the work you're trying to show.

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: @Dirtykielbasa Hey Bud, if you want the knockdown dash look exactly you will need to dash it, it’s a bit more difficult than dashing an interior, but the same principals apply. Perhaps you should just consider a float finish where you use the sponge float, it is easier. The walls will have a look like 80 to 100 grit sandpaper. Best wishes and have a great evening. Kirk Giordano plastering

inboxnews: cratch?

Juan Manuel: hi my name is juan i am.doing a.sttuco wall but i using sttuco bag from home.depot but when i sttuco.this wall.it cratch and i.dont know why and worry about this would u please.tell me why this happen??? thank u

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hey Chad, I believe I was around 600 bucks. Thanks and have a great day! Kirk Giordano plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Evening Laned1, thank you. I have been doing this for over 30 years and still enjoy what I do. It helps to enjoy your work, I guess. Have a great evening kirk Giordano Plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hey Peter Agostini, thank you, calcium chloride cement or what us stucco dudes call (luminite) is good stuff but it does have a 6 month shelf life. I've used it where a cup would set a 5 gallon bucket in five minutes but as it's gets old it now can take 5 to 8 cups for the same results. It's use it or lose it. Thanks for watching and have a groovy evening. Kirk Giordano plastering

powerrangjer2001: plster ok ..but i dont know how to make plaster simen.. call give some intruction... :D

koffeedragon: Hi Kirk, Love your videos... they've helped me to ask better questions when collecting stucco estimate. I have a wall in Phoenix, AZ, and parts of the wall will be hit with water from a sprinkler and drip system. The block shows efflorescence in spots. We'd like to stucco the wall and color it. Sometime you install a screed - but in this video you did not. Should we you use a screed on this block wall to prevent damage to the stucco from the sprinkler system?

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Good morning Richard Medina, I seriously doubt it, it would simply enhance the fact that it has not been built properly, some folks actually like that look. Your best bet would be to skim the entire wall for a look of professionalism. Have a great day! And thanks for watching. Kirk Giordano Plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hey elysian war dude, you would have to first prepare the painted surface. The stucco is only as good as to what it applied on. If the paint fails the stucco comes off. Pressure wash or scrape the paint first to remove dirt, grime, moss and loose paint, next apply bonding agent. Now apply stucco Best wishes, Kirk Giordano plastering

dpompian: I am repairing a shower that has a wall that is 50 year old plaster over concrete on the exterior of the building. The corner between the exterior wall and the framed wall disintegrated where the corner mesh rusted and I can see the foundation. It was recommended that I fill in this area with a scratch and brown using a bonding agent. Next I'm going to Thinset 1/4" cement board with a Redguard coat prior to tiling. Would you give your opinion on this strategy.

Juan Manuel: i mean crack the cement crack and i dont know why thanks to take the time to answer my question

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Evening dpistoltube, yes, you can stucco a 500 year old cinder block, brick, stone clay etc. wall. Simply and most importantly make certain that wall is super clean, Pressure wash very well. Thank you for watching a have a good evening! Kirk Giordano plastering

miguel pirro: YOUR JOBS LOOKS UGLY,

iznob123: thank you I will try and let you know if it works out. John

CATTLEDOGwatchNsheep: you don't always have to take mud from the top of the hawk.& in the real world guys with there own business get things done. don't freak the dog & sell the pups like you union guys. if he wants to blow his elbow out using that tool thats on him he's a big boy.i have one but i only use it on slick coats while finishing the wall. as for not expecting much watch his vids he does clean work that looks good upon completion, & i've seen a bunch of you union guys try & work in AZ you got run over

Jakob Lazarus Thibault: Hello. Thank you for the video. I have some old textured cement blocks over 100 years old. They have been painted and the paint is on there pretty good. I also have new blocks and brick in this wall. I want a semi consistent finish. I was going to use Quickwall but is there anything I can do over the painted block that would help it stick? You mentioned JS Wall Crete, would that prep it?

Ricky Romo: should I mix adheisive to the wall and mortar mix prior to stuccoing the wall? ok to text me 909 -714-0022

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hey homebrew, I don’t brag about being a ninja stucco dude, however I really very good with nun chucks, so much in fact that I did a few videos as my kids asked me to show their friends with my ninja abilities. They are of course on another channel, but those skills help me with being able to play around with plastering mud. (Hand eye coordination stuff) Here’s my tip, stop waking your girl up at night unless you going to entertain her. Have a groovy day! Kirk Giordano plastering

David Termini: Hey Kirk, Thanks for showing this video. I lived in a small house years ago that was built by a retired plaster guy for himself. The outside was stuccoed with a finish of tiny little black,white,and other colors of rough edged rocks like a fine gravel and had a little sparkle to it. Is there a name for this? Thanks Dave

chad elliott: how much would a job like this cost?

Manuel Reyes: gracias sir k.g, u r the best at ur trade. very pro! and so cool about it. -manuel r -dal. tx

joel arseneault: Hey Kirk. My girlfriend is upset with you. See, I watched your video, read some comments and when I came to the reply about you having ninja plasterer skills, and threw I the comment about being able to use nun-chucks I laughed so hard I shook the bed and woke her up. Not sure if it was supposed to be funny but it just caught me off guard... And she's not really upset. You made my evening ! Cheers.

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Your welcome Manrey, And thanks for the groovy compliment. Best wishes. kirk Giordano Plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Howdy crapter dude, That’s an easy question. A scratch coat can last forever if it’s thick enough. Maybe you house has both coats with a scratch finish? I have seen this many times. If it’s just the first coat, depending how long it’s been on and is fairly clean you can apply another coat whenever you like. Usually a second coat is applied after waiting at least 48 hours for the scratch to cure. Best wishes and have a great day! kirk Giordano plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Thanks cattledog, your right I am a big boy. But I also believe that fella meant well. Plus, I try not to take comments personally; we all have our own methods. Best wishes to you, and have a good evening. Kirk Giordano plastering

TheRagingFoxhound: I am not sure how to say this... Why do you use a pool trowel? Why do you remove the mud from the back rather than the front of the hawk with the trowel? I am a plasterer myself and when I see these techniques, I do not expect much. I was trained union by men who are skilled machines.

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hi Evan, I used thin set this weekend, but I was setting tile, with it. (that's what it's designed for) For your use I would recommend a fastset plaster you can but it this material at Home Depot. I believe they now sell a product called rapid set Eisenwall it's pre -mixed with sand and cement., just add water. Read the directions carefully, because it will set fast and can't be over mixed. It's what I would recommend for patchwork. Best wishes. Kirk Giordano Plastering

Michael Donnelly: Hi Krik; Nice work. If I had to do this to a small wall outside my house on Saturday morning (whihc I am doing). Assuming I have zero of the products needed, can you tell me exactly the items I need to buy at Home Depot on Friday night, and about the total it will cost me? Just bought a new fixer-upper and I have been viewing a few of your posts, Thank you ---- Mike

Carl Good: Good content but there were times I couldn't see what he was dining because the camera was pointing the wrong way and much of his work was in the shadows and difficult to see.

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hi Cotoloe, it could be you used too much sand, or the plaster could have dried too quickly or you didn’t' wet the application between plaster coats or about 20 over different really good reasons. Without knowing the material or what you applied it to (wood lathed wall or brick or cinderblock) all I can do is guess the most common reasons. Sorry and best wishes. Kirk Giordano plastering

Kirk & Jason Giordano's DIY plastering and stucco network: Hey Brew, I used Portland, premium cement plaster. Whatever the sand grit you are matching determines what size sand you use. You can match any light sand finish with course sand if you keep troweling it down after it sets. (Takes Practice)This Portland premium cement is great for block, brick and concrete. Just make sure it's clean. Best wishes. Kirk Giordano plastering
