We have just redone the front of our house, and our contractor has finished the stucco. There are what is called stucco "bands" around the windows and a big stucco "band" across the house between the 1st and 2nd story of the house. These are smooth and the rest of the house is stucco texture. The final coat of texture that the stucco guy put on, is kind of white in color and the stucco bands did not get this final coat. I believe he used what is referred to as "one coat" stucco. By the way, we live in Florida and we paint the stucco, so the color doesn't matter. I am just describing it, to tell you that I know that the stucco bands did not get this final coat.
My question is, does this seem correct? Shouldn't the stucco bands get a final skim coat also? The reason I am asking, is that they are not as smooth as I had imagined they would be, and also there is a mistake or blob of stucco on one of the bands that he will come back and "fix" somehow. I am wondering how it can be fixed.. or if a final smooth skim coat should be done on the stucco bands.
Thank for any advice. I appreciate it.
