As a building material, stucco is a durable, attractive, and weather-resistant wall covering, traditionally used as an exterior finish directly over a solid masonry, brick or wire mesh with a wood sub-frame. The traditional application of stucco and lath occurs in three coats — the scratch coat, the brown coat and the finish coat. The two base coats of plaster are either hand-applied or machine sprayed. The finish coat can be troweled smooth, hand-textured, floated to a sand finish or sprayed. It is usually a mix of sand, Portland cement, lime and water, but may also consist of a proprietary mix of additives including fibers and synthetic acrylics that add strength and flexibility.
