Cost difference of Acrylic stucco VS traditional stucco, explanation
Hello, our friendly subscribers,
In this quick explanation, I’m explaining the cost difference between Acrylic stucco and traditional stucco or, as we say, in the plastering trade.
Acrylic stucco cost more as they are twice the work, and costs are about three times that of cementitious color coats.
However, with acrylic stucco, they tend to flex more, thus, in the long run, possibly less hairline cracking if your home is on a hill or area prone to ground movement, plus they are more water-resistant and won’t darken when wet.

A cementitious finish, such as La Habra, Western, Carson, BMI, etc., tends to darken when wet but also provides a maintenance-free finish that never needs painting again, ever.
Cementitious color finishes are like a brick. When wet, the colors darken, but when dryer conditions. Return the wall return also to their original color. Thus like a brick, the color last forever also as it’s integrated into the cement. stucco
Colors can be solid in appearance if the light base of 100 is used, “white” the easier to get a solid color; however, if a darker color is wanted, a 200 base, grey, is required.
For example, if a darker color is wanted, the home won’t be solid like a printed surface.
As a rule for every 94 bound bag of color, 2 pounds of pigment are added,
However, when adding 5 to 10 pounds of pigment, expect a certain degree of color variations. Some folks request variations in colors. Some don’t.
With the majority of our videos, the title is the tip of the iceberg; the content of the videos hopefully explains what one wants to understand the meaning of.
