Can you apply stucco over a block or brick wall without applying a cement plaster base coat?

  • A leveling coat of plaster applied to the wall prior to the color coat prevents the grout lines from shadowing through the color coat. It also levels the wall for a straighter and more attractive wall. Lemon Grove stucco will also apply an acrylic bonder adhesive to the wall prior to the leveling coat.
  • If the wall has been painted or sealed, sandblasting or a metal reinforcement should be attached and a coat of plaster applied prior to the color coat.
