Traditional stucco is made from cement and lime. As it is cement-based, the colours of traditional stucco are typically more muted. Therefore, we recommend selecting lighter colours when you work with traditional stucco.
There are no limits to the textures and patterns we can create using traditional stucco. L&B Stucco can replicate any design that you would like on your home’s exterior, including:
- Textured (traditional)
- Floated (Smooth with grains/swirls)
Traditional stucco is applied first using building paper and a wire mesh underlay. It is then applied in several layers with a trowel. To ensure that your stucco lasts, we often apply the traditional stucco and then use an acrylic coating over the top of the cement-based siding.
