- Apply acrylic primer to ensure uniform appearance to acrylic color finish. (Bonding agent for traditional stucco finish.)
- The final step is a decorative and protective acrylic finish or traditional stucco finish.

Acrylic stucco/synthetic stucco finish
The very first impression of a building is almost always made by its color. With acrylic finishes you can achieve much deeper and darker colors with greater color consistency than traditional stucco. All Acrylic finishes are available in standard colors as well as unlimited custom tinting, limited only by the imagination.
Acrylic finishes are a blend of 100% acrylic co-polymers and aggregate. Flexible enough to seal existing, non-moving hairline cracks, thereby providing protection against degradation caused by moisture and pollution intrusion.
Acrylic finishes won’t darken or discolor during prolonged rainstorms. They also add weather resistance to the Portland cement assembly while still allowing the assembly to breathe.
Acrylic finishes include Dirt Pick-up Resistance (DPR) technology. The combination of monomers and emulsifiers helps reduce dirt attraction and greatly improves the long-term appearance of your home or business.

Stucco is the best value and the most efficient wall finish available. It is a tried-and-true finish with a proven, long-term, and well-documented history. Providing a variety of textures, beauty, durability, and fire-resistance properties.
Beautiful cement stucco integral colors use iron oxide pigments to achieve its color. These inorganic minerals give the colors a rich and natural look. Since the stucco is internally colored, when applied correctly, it never needs painting, will not peel, and resists fading.
Like many natural materials, cement stucco looks a little different each season. With proper curing, age, and exposure to the elements, Portland cement stucco can darken slightly over time, enhancing the color. This is a unique characteristic of stucco.
Stucco cement products fade approximately 1% to 3% in 20 years. Depending on the color, most exterior paint products will fade about 50% in 5 to 8 years. Stucco is very durable when applied correctly, Cement stucco is a tough, fire resistant material that will not peal and resists fading.
