What is Stucco?

When it comes to your home exterior, you must go an extra mile to elevate your house’s aesthetics. With this in mind, Depend Exteriors uses stucco to provide your home with beautiful exterior finishes. Whether you are building a new home or revamping your current one, stucco contractors are your go-to for exceptional services. 

While some of you might be familiar with Edmonton stucco exteriors, this might be totally new to some homeowners. Stucco is a blend of cement, sand, lime, and water. This mixture comes out as strong as it sounds and when it dries up, our skilled experts offer options of paint according to your desired colors. With years of experience and skill in home exteriors, we apply the mixed stucco on a wire base, commonly referred to as lath, in several coats. This results in an undoubtedly robust, durable, and flawless appearance for the exterior. 

Types of Stucco Finishes

Most homeowners always have no idea about the different types of stucco finishes that can be used. For this reason, our contractors are well versed in creating various textures. This way, you are represented with several options so you can choose one that fits your needs. Our company provides several types of designs that will elevate your home to unmatched elegance.

Dash Finish

This is the most popular design that we provide to homeowners. With the use of dash and our home exterior expertise, we guarantee your home’s elevation to a whole new level. Dash features a highly textured gravel appearance with a range from light to dense texture. Either of these textures we provide blends perfectly well with every type of home, so you can never go astray with the same. How about you give it a trial?

Cat Face Finish

At Depend exteriors, we provide the cat face finish, which has a unique design to suit your exquisite taste. This finish comes as a smooth surface along with rough areas varying in size. We refer to these rough areas as the cat faces. To create this effect of peeking “cat faces” on your home’s exterior, we apply a rough coat of stucco first and follow up with a smooth coat. This brings out the artistic design very well for a stunning appearance. 

Santa Barbara Finish

The name itself sounds calming and for sure, the Santa Barbara finish is an incredible option that our contractors provide if you want a smooth finish for your homes. Our trained experts use small sand particles to bring out a semi-smooth texture that soothes the eyes. We apply two traditional stucco coats on the walls to achieve this vibrant look on your home exterior. Our finishes are not limited to a certain color, thus you can choose your favorite color to match our masterpiece work for your home.

Sand Finish

The sand finish also stands among the commonly used stucco finishes. In this one, the surface comes out as if some sand was added into the mixture while making stucco. Most people refer to this finish as the float finish. Our professionals use a foam float to bring out this look that goes well even with businesses. You can request for a fine, medium, or rough style depending on the outcome that you expect. Sand finishes are perfect for correcting imperfections in your home’s exterior without ruining the appearance, so contact our team for a job well done.

Worm Finish

This is one of the unique stucco finishes that our team brings to your home. The worm finish requires synthetic stucco on which the grooves are created.  Despite being hard to achieve, we ensure you get top-notch results of the worm finish, whether for your office or home.
