cultured stone scratch coat dilemma
Michigan weather can be troublesome, the cement scratch cote did not set up, it’s crumbling and soft.
I applied a scratch coat to the metal lathe, the day started out at 60 F, I covered 150 square feet. For the next two days it rained and the temperature dropped into the 30’s overnight.
I don’t know what to do with this scratch coat. It appears to be too soft and it can be rubbed into dust. Can I reapply another coat or does the bad coat have to come off. I thought about using a pressure washer to blast it off as much as possible to reveal the mesh again.
