This video explains how to fix any plumbing hole in a stucco wall, where the plumbers had to install new plumbing pipes or fittings or make repairs.

Note: the plumber who did the repair did a fine job fixing the plumbing pipes but left guys like us a mess to put back together.
He should have broken from stud to stud and left the piece of wood he cut through.
Note the methods for fixing a plumbing hole in a stucco wall are the same as any other type of hole in a stucco wall.

We could have nailed the wood back in place, waterproofed the areas, added some stucco netting, and applied the stucco for this repair.
However, the plumber took the plywood with him, making our job more difficult, but nothing we couldn't handle.
If you folks are going to have plumbing repairs, it’s best to tell the plumber, repair the leak, and re-attach the wood where they found it; thus, if you stucco it back yourself, It would be much easier.

Eisenwall also manufactures a DIY or homeowner-friendly product called “Rapid set Stucco.”
It’s sold at HD and lowes plus all other hardware stores, “Rapid set stucco” is sold in 10 or 25-pound boxes or larger amounts in 50 to 94-pound bags. This is a user-friendly product.
What that means, the sand is already in the bags. You add water.

Hi guys, Kirk and Jason here with Kirk Giordano, plastering, today, I'll, show how to repair a hole, a plumbing, hole.

The camera, won't show, but we, this fella here did a great job with his plumbing.

Repair.

Course.

He made it a little difficult for fellows like me who got to come in after.

Why? Can.

You see why? It'll, make it a little tougher for me? Well I'll, tell you why, in case, you can't, see, it, you fellows who watch what we do probably caught it immediately., There's, wood, right here.

He cut through the wood and the stucco, made his job.

Easy.

However.

He could have put he could have cut back from stud to stud.

Then put back the wood and fellows like me.

And he could have actually did the insulation.

The homeowner sent me this last night on an email and I said, well, dude, do you have any insulation there?? And he says, what's, that?, I said, never mind man, I'll, bring my own insulation, I'll.

Do you a favor, and I'll cut this and put it in here, anyway, the textures pretty cool.

Too, I looked at that.

Not that piece of cake, but I looked at all the patchwork.

He had around the house and I'm going to show you some of that, because it's kind of interesting how people had an idea, but they didn't do it right.

So Jay is going to break this out., Then we're going to get started I'm actually going to fish some of this insulation, in.

Yeah.

This sort throat, I, got, hopefully.

You guys could hear me, makes for a good impression of Sylvester, Stallone, say, like in the movie, Rocky, "yo, Adrian? Or that other movie, First, Blood, "There's, one man, dead, it's, not my fault; I, don't want any more hurt." That's.

The only good thing about a scratchy throat, but anyway, we're going to go.

Ahead; Jay is going to first break this out, I'm going to stick this flat, our insulation in there.

It actually goes this way.

Give us a little bit more of a solid background, because we're not going to have the wood to put here, the stucco's going to have a tendency to want to push in.

So there's actually give me a little bit more solid of a background.

Anyway, Jay is going to break this out and we'll show you step-by-step how to do this in case you guys want to do it yourself.

Alright, guys before I finish out the break out here., I mustache.

You guys in question.

Why is breakout so important?, why? Well break out is important, because without 2 to 3 inches of good existing paper.

We cannot waterproof this patch.

There are ways to try and put it together, but you need paper to overlap our new paper to make sure that that patch is waterproof, without that.

You can't guarantee it., We, just don't do it.

So anyway, on these sides here I've got good paper.

You see I got this plastic here.

This is just to stop anything from going in the house, is it a big deal? no.

But why not do it if you can,? So when you're doing breakout, wear a mask, if you got it it's hard to talk through them, though you got to go small, if you start with your Bulldog tip way up here, you end up with these big chunks that you can't break out., you can.

But you end up damaging the paper more than you mean to.

So you start small little like quarter, inch, intervals and pardon.

This thing is going to be real loud right on my microphone, but just like that, you're doing little bitty, pieces, and it'll, just knock it all out Now.

What do you do with you end up with all these little clunkers? You, just change how you're angled, or sometimes you can just pull them off with your fingers.

But if you can't do that, and you need to get it off, just aim down pop it right? Off., anyway.

You see where I'm going with this - thankfully, this paper is in pretty good condition.

Once you get up away from this edge here, where it's, you know, there's, no wood support.

It I'm going to finish this up and then we'll show you where we're going from here.

All right, guys, J did the nasty work of break out.

They've put out something oK.

We've got our two layers of paper here.

And can you use a membrane of rubber? Yeah, you could do that.

But the paper is fine, here's.

One thing to consider, okay, you overlap your existing paper.

You go over the existing paper.

And here you go under the existing paper.

The new paper has to go under the existing paper that way if water goes through this painted surface, which is unlikely, because the house is 90 years, old, it's, been painted, probably 30 times if it goes on and goes onto this paper, it'll drip harmlessly here and harmlessly on here., what I've done thus far, is, I've, cut this wire just to show you guys where we're going, I'm going to go ahead and caulk.

It first.

This stuff is a nice construction sealant.

But if you get it on your fingers it's a real nightmare, so I'm gonna go ahead and caulk that put this on I'm going to show you how we do the coats we're going to get to that part of how we do.

The finish too.

I was watching Jay do this when he used one of my lines you're going to do dad's sit here and admire me, break it out?.

So I had to climb up 30 stairs and get the mud mix., Anyhow, we're, almost at that stage guys all right guys.

Now you weekend stucco warriors want to do like the professionals do like what we do? What Jay did is he mixed this whole bucket and he's got Portland cement, see this stuff here that's for the - we're going to throw on finish that's, what that's for this won't harden for about four hours.

But this right here he took half of the bucket, and he had a Luminite to it.

What is Lluminite? Well.

Something that accelerates the process.

So.

What I'm going to do is I'm going to go ahead and knock this out it's going to set within 10 minutes, how long does it take to learn to master Luminite? Try about 100 jobs, guys, minimum., Of course, the stuff it's like food goes bad.

You buy a 100-pound sack or at technically a 94-pound sack.

It will go bad.

If you don't use it all up.

And.

How many of you guys would use a 94-pound bag? Nobody, just for us.

Stucco guys.

Another thing to, Jay showed you breakout.

Why do I got a sore? Throat, I, don't have a cold, two weeks ago or a week ago, I was doing a video and I was showing the stucco, I didn't have a mask on.

And because I have a somewhat of a compromised immune system, that dust, gave me a sore throat.

so guys, you never know, what's in stucco, wear a mask if you're going to break out, and how often do I break out?, very rarely.

Not only do I, not like it.

But it just don't work for me, it'll, tear my system, up, any way you see what we're what we're gonna do, I told you guys I'd show you what they've done here and how to match it.

I will do just that, because I'm gonna let this set for about, Oh 10 minutes in that 10 minutes, but take you around the corner because right here is too tight, a fit we're working between a retaining wall, that's, uh, that's, tough to work.

Right next to a retaining wall show what we do, how do I know know,? Because we've done about 600 videos now and I'm getting the hang of what I'll show what won't, anyway, I'm gonna take you around the side, I'm gonna show you folks something, ok, guys, I'm going to show you why or how to match this finish.

They have about three or four different guys on this 90-year-old house, who all gave it their best shot, some of them aren't bad in fact.

Okay, this is bad.

Anyway.

What they done first is the mix of soupy, cement, usually Portland with sand.

They make it real soupy, put the brush in it and throw it on it's called a Dash finish.

Okay.

They did the Dash finish here, where it looks like moon, craters, very heavy.

A lot of water makes moon craters like that the drier it is makes mountains.

Then after they did that they floated their edge.

I can see the edge, is floated, but they should not have allowed it to stay there.

Then what they did was they took a trowel, probably a little-bitty, trowel square trowel.

And they just went up like this.

They came here, now, that really isn't how your match to finish it's close, but it's, not on the money.

What I'm going to do is I'm going to - it just like they did I'm going to put this as a template, and go around put it go around, put it and go around that'll match it on the money.

The garage is somebody's attempts, which kind of interesting looking, but I'm on some fellows house, I'm, not going to go showing everybody everybody's attempts, I'll show you our attempt.

When we get there all right, guys, soupy mud throwing the Dash finish on here, all it is is Portland cement.

Now you got to count for what they've got it's, just a flick of the wrist, guy, flick of the wrist.

And what you want to do when dashing is go over everything completely and don't, just put it in one spot go over it, give it a chance to set,? Because if I go too heavy it's going to slide, that's, how the dashes work, I'm going to show you another example in a second.

So let me get their texture.

First then we'll figure out the lines.

no, I, haven't figured out the lines yet, I have an idea.

Not been wrong.

Yet.

Well, actually, I have they just some textures.

Take me a lot longer to match than others and that's.

Normal okay.

Now, that's got a set.

I'm going to do something over here's.

Why I'm waiting for it.

Dah, finish guys, okay, too much dash.

Give you an idea why we got to wait, I'm in no hurry, I'm, killing time, right? Now, because I got to wait ten minutes for this.

So while I'm waiting, when if you put it too thick, now watch that's it's over a painted surface.

So it got no suction so it's going to dry.

Now what happens if I hit it more it's going to fall it's going to drag,? See? How it's starting to come down, it's, crying, volcanoes., Okay, and Plus.

Now, the tool they used Oh say for example., I took a clean dash brush.

A dash brush is about like this, say, you're going with a rectangular circle.

If I were to hit this right now.

What would happen? it's too wet, it'll just slide, down., Or.

If I use a little-bitty trowel, it'd fall down.

Let me give you an example, and you can use a brush, I had a brush somewhere here.

You can use a brush to make little patterns.

What I'm prepared to do is take something hold it here, and make some patterns first with the brush, but I got to let this set, but here's, what happens if you hit it too thin? Guys, you take my little pattycake type, trowel here, you hit it.

You see how it starts to slide.

So I've got to kill some time, and allow this to dry.

You can't do anything with it because it just slides.

Now, if this fellow was home, he'd say, "Kirk, what the heck you doing messing up my wall?", So I'm going to go ahead and clean up his wall for him, and put it back into the bucket when this is ready, I'll show you how we do it.

So you can just skip forward.

okay, guys, let's, try the old tic-tac-toe type, finish.

Everybody plays that game - this way - that way Okay, come on now, see what I'm doing.

Then.

What we can do is we want to tie into some existing stuff.

Maybe that's.

What these fellows did, they said.

Gee, whiz, let's play a game.

Guy, tic-tack-toe., alright.

Now, I didn't, get rid of those trowel lines.

Well, take afloat and just float them.

Out.

Tap them, out, right around where the so-called squares are or rectangles that's one way to do it a lot of ways to do this a lot of different finishes on this house.

There get rid of that get rid of that.

And.

That is what is closer than what the other fellas got.

It looks pretty good to me.

Take it and feather in the joints now feather in a little bit.

And there you have it that's, the so-called tic-tac-toe finish., I like that, anyway, guys.

My name is Kirk.
