Learn how to properly identify the type of stucco wall cladding on any building.
This guide was written by Ron Huffman and Dennis Rose, stucco professionals with decades of experience in the field and in the classroom.
This 16-page field guide is the companion document for the Stucco ID Decision Tree Card, which can be purchased by clicking here.  The Stucco ID Decision Tree provides a concise, step-by-step decision process for identifying the type of stucco on a building.  The Stucco ID Decision Tree encompasses the typical stucco systems in use in the United States and Canada over the past several decades; if the type of stucco on a property cannot be identified by this decision tree, then, most likely, it is not an approved system, although there may be a few exceptions or more than one type of stucco on a building.

1.  HCS/Hard-Coat Stucco
