- As needed and scheduled maintenance services - As with anything else, over time stucco requires maintenance. Excessive moisture, or less than desirable drainage can cause cracks and deterioration and other flaws in its surface that allow water to enter. As you may imagine, this is not a good thing and will cause stucco failure.
- Stone works
Some of the many type of texture finishes:
Dash - A highly textured, gritty finish that can range from fine to heavy and even knockdown. To ensure an even application, two to three coats are usually sprayed on with a hopper. This texture works for both traditional or synthetic and can be easily patched assuming the color is matched properly.
Sand or Float - As the name implies, sand is added to the stucco mix allowing for a fine, medium or coarse finish. This type of finish can usually be completed with a single coat and works for both traditional or synthetic applications. This finish is usually hand troweled, but can be prayed and then troweled down. This type is also easy to patch if the right color match is made.
Lace and skip trowel - Most common application due to its ability to hide imperfections and its suitability for most building types. Its pattern is created by applying the final layer of plaster in random directions using a skip-trowel. The final step is to flatten the surface which create a lace-like pattern. This style is usually done with traditional stucco although acrylic can be used. A base coat and a then a texture is applied to complete this type of finish.
Smooth finishes - The most difficult type of finish to complete, this texture is the smoothest you’ll find. There is a trend towards adding a mottled affect to this finish for a unique touch. Usually a synthetic plaster is used for this finish. The smooth finish is achieved by using a pool trowel.
Cat Face - Rough inclusions added to a smooth otherwise smooth finish. These inclusions range from small to large. This is done using two coats and can be hand troweled or sprayed but must be finished by hand. Can be done with both traditional or synthetic stucco.
