Ok i recently bought a home built in 1941 it has a strange siding, I have seen this stuff before but i have no idea what it is called.

It is like a concrete or morter with small rocks inbedded in it.

This is my siding..

I need to know first what it is called.. second the best way to patch it.

And last how do you clean this stuff?? i tried a pressure washer but it blows the rocks off.

PLEASE help me! =)

I,m not sure of the name but if you go to Lowe's or ********** they could help. If you power wash use a lower speed so it won't tear it off I hope this helps a little.

Hi - Definately make sure your siding doesn't contain asbetoes. If it does, you most likely will need to replace it. In the meantime make sure you wear gloves and a mask when dealing with it!

Regards,

Kate
