    The biggest confidence booster with DIY you just hit upon in your last post. Don’t fear messing
    it up if worst comes to worst you can chop it all out and try again. The old saying “paralysis

    My point exactly. You SHOULD mix a small amount for the size of your damaged area. Since
    QuikCrete sets up quickly a large amount would be a mistake. Mix it to the consistency of thick
    peanut butter, ...

    What I meant by the screed is because of the profile of your patch. I couldn't really tell if

    match the e...

    Not sure where you live but Craigslist is your best friend here. Used tools all the time for
    all manner of jobs. How long can a cement trowel last? A lifetime, really. You can get away

    so, to feathered. Some products require a bonding agent and some don't. Follow the
    directions.You'll just r...

    How about listing what you have, someone might help you sort out what's usable.I just now
    opened several containers of what's in the garage, including DAP ready mixed stucco repair and
    another brand o...
