We have a concrete block house with a faux stucco on the outside. We have toyed with getting vinyl siding but it is so expensive. We are thinking of re-doing the stucco so it looks the way it is suppose to look. What do we need to take care of this ourselves. How much can we expect to spend.

We use a product by Parex. Take a look at their website for colors and details on their different products. As for application, well, you can look into plastering how-tos, or check out faux finish schools that teach texture application. I think there are plaster companies that have workshops but I'm not familiar with them.
