Here is why you should choose stucco over paint

Stucco is a durable and low-maintenance exterior finish.  It is being used since centuries for it’s artistic ability as well as it’s inherent qualities of weather-resistance and attractive textured finish.  A pliable material, stucco allows you to create textures or even add tiny rocks or pieces of glass to the mix.

Made from a mixture of Portland cement, sand and water, stucco can be applied directly to any masonry surface.  Unlike paint, it does not require extensive surface preparation nor does it require constant re-application.  In stucco, color pigment can be integrated into the mix itself or you can opt for directly painting over the stucco surface.  If you have used stucco on your exterior, send us a picture and we could just feature your house!
