Portland Cement plaster has been a reliable building product since the 1800’s, resulting in centuries of installations that have stood the test of time. Even with this impressive history, the stucco industry has continually worked to evolve this durable material, resulting in a product that is more flexible and resistant to cracking.

Today’s stucco systems can be applied to flat or curved surfaces using several different installation methods. Aesthetically, it can be colored and finished in a variety of textures to match any architectural style. While stucco can be painted most new installations provide the ability to add pigments or utilize colored cement. When integral color is used, the need to paint is eliminated up front and reduced over time since the material is color-retentive.

In addition to coloring, the final appearance of the finish coat can be varied by changing the size and shape of the aggregate, changing the consistency of the finish mix, method or equipment used for plastering. The end result of the texture gives substance and character to the plaster surface, so it is important to work with an experienced team to guide you through the details of this selection process.
