Stucco has been trending over the past few years in the GTA since it is easy to maintain, has the ability to last for years and it is versatile enough to work with the appearance of any home. When it comes to stucco, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from in terms of the texture and desired finish. While some of the finishes are standard and are often seen on many homes, some are more customized and decorative in nature.
Standard Stucco Finishes
Sand or Float Finish – This type of finish appears grainy and can be applied with a coarse, medium or a fine texture.
Lace Finish – The lace finish provides a look of depth and has the ability to hide minor irregularities. This is a classic look that never goes out of style.
Dash Finish –This would be your finish of choice if you are looking for a rougher texture than what is found with the float or sand finish.
Scraped – This finish offers a smoother texture that is easy to clean and maintain.
Other decorative finishes include the cat face, the worm, the trowel sweep, the briar, the comb and the Santa Barbara finish. They all have their own distinctive look and while some boast a more contemporary appearance, others present an exquisite Mediterranean or traditional style.
The stucco may be applied to the entire exterior of the home or you may just want to apply it in sections. The finish can be customized according to the overall look you are trying to achieve. Our professional craftsmen are dedicated to detail and can design unique elements for specific sections or structures.
