Here is a summary of our exterior offerings beside windows, doors and sidings:
Traditional (or conventional) stucco is made of sand and cement. It is common in older homes and it has a characteristic texture or roughness, which depends on the size of the grains of sand used. On the other hand, acrylic stucco gives a smoother, more modern look to homes and is the common type used today in southern Alberta. It is usually part of the Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) which involves several steps to ensure proper waterproofing and insulation. Acrylic stucco is pre-mixed for any custom colour, thus it doesn’t require painting and the resultant colours are quite predictable and consistent.This is unlike conventional stucco which comes in dry powder form and can have colour variations from batch to batch as it mixed. It also often needs to be painted over to achieve the exact colour that the client wants.
