Q: Where can I buy stucco?
A: You don’t really “buy”
stucco so much as you buy the materials to mix stucco onsite or
hire a contractor to do the work. You can purchase materials to
make stucco throughout the country at material supply houses and

materials may include portland, masonry, or plastic cement, lime

You can look to your local Yellow Pages or the Blue Book of Construction,
available on line at www.thebluebook.com
or at your local library to identify contractors in your area.
