Two years ago I had a master suite addition put on my house, new stucco. A final color coat was applied to the whole house, not just the addition, for a consistent look. Unfortunately, the final color coat ended up being a disaster as I don't think the mixture was adequately stirred resulting in terribly inconsistent color. At this point I really need to fix the problem before planting shrubs, which will make future access more difficult.
I'd also take a recommendation on someone to build/repair block walls.
