esch19 Posted August 9, 2014 Report Share Posted August 9, 2014 Trying to determine a new siding for a house built in 1880 with structural brick exterior walls 3 layers thick.... Can a Portland based stucco be applied over the soft brick? There's very few houses this age left around here and even less are brick and I'm having hard time finding this information but have found many companies in New England area that stucco over 1800's houses with brick walls with Portland stucco... I've done a lot of it over concrete block with a scratch and brown coat then final stucco such as Arcusstone.. Brick is currently painted and assuming I need to try and remove first but do I need to repoint before stuccoing? Thanks for any help I may receive. Inside of brick walls appear to be a harder stucco applied directly over brick Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
