plaster or stucco
 
Hi
I want to know how you can tell just by looking at it if it is
plaster or stucco exterior wall is there a way to tell just by looking at it.
i know you will find plaster in most older homes(wood lathe inside wall but if yoiu cant see it ) unless remodled but i
have trouble identifying it even on those homes if the age is not known
Thanks

I don't think plaster is a medium used on exterior wall applications. Around these parts stucco and Drivit are what we find most often...but then again I have been wrong before, I think...maybe not.
