STUCCO

Traditional stucco, also known as hard coat stucco, is a centuries-old wall cladding system that is made from a mixture of Portland cement, lime, sand and water. Acrylics and fibers are added to add strength and help prevent cracks. Traditional stucco will consist of three layers:   

1         The inner layer known as the scratch coat.  

 2         The middle layer known as the brown coat, which after being applied is leveled into a smooth surface. Wire mesh is added to reinforce the stucco. The brown coat is then allowed to cure for at least several days. During this stage if the weather is very hot and dry, water will be sprayed onto the stucco to add moisture and ensure the stucco completely cures.  

 3         The exterior layer called the finish coat.
