New acrylic stucco finishes










New acrylic stucco finishes.
Do cementitious color coats verse acrylics color coats? What’s better,
Stucco Acrylics, of course!
A 3 coat traditional stucco system with a cementitious finish should last over 100 years.
But, of course, the colors will fade in the sun, and through the years, with many, many seasons of rain, especially for months at a time, the ground will saturate and move.
This is normal. However, this will cause hairlines cracks. Mind you. These cracks do not mean a home is leaking. It simply means after many seasons, this will occur no matter where in the whorl you live. Also, traffic wind, doors, and windows being slammed or shut hard will cause hairline cracks, which is just the tip of the iceberg. These cementitious color finishes will darken like a brick because they are maintenance-free. (Never needs painting) But stucco does not rot like wood—too many other benefits to name.

Now acrylic finishes are Acrylic paints with sand and color.
This means they can flex more than a cementitious color finish, and when they get wet, they do not darken as they don’t absorb water
(at least not for about 25 years and even then only a bit.) I usually recommend acrylics on hilltop homes where the winds and the rains are brutal (usually about
50 to100 miles an hour) the rain mixed with the high wind will add movement to any home.
However, you will pay more for acrylics. Do the benefits outweigh the costs?
I believe so. In certain situations, they defiantly do.
