Greetings from Virginia, the most historic state.
All exterior finishes you see are REAL Portland cement and REAL sand and not the TOXIC SYNTHETIC (fake) junk that comes out of a bucket.
Did you know that making SYNTHETIC STUCCO finish, acrylic paint and other TOXIC building materials generates more pollution than all the car exhaust in the world ?

              total wall, sonneborn
This synthetic stucco is easily torn off with a garden spade.
This is the fake stuff that the unfair competition pawns off as real stucco to a unwitting public.
The basecoat is thin, only about
1/4", instead of the 3/4" standard
for real stucco, and has a highly
toxic synthetic finish coat.
These lying crooks that put this on steal millions from the consumer and from legimate contractors in unfair competion. 5 year old installation is already falling apart.
