Transform Your Home With A New Stucco Exterior

If you want to give the exterior of your home a makeover, one thing you can do is install new siding. You could also simply paint the current siding to give it new life. However, when you want a totally new look, you should consider putting stucco on your home. Stucco can give your home a bit of a luxury touch depending on the style of your home and the colors you choose. Here's some information on transforming your home with stucco.

How Stucco Is Applied

It's a labor-intensive job to install stucco, and it takes a skilled touch. Stucco is made from lime, sand, and cement. It has a consistency similar to mud when it is applied. It is smoothed out over the surface of the walls using hand tools. Once the stucco is dry, it forms a continuous smooth exterior surface for your home. Extruded stucco trim can then be added for enhanced visual appeal. You can have this decorative stucco trim applied to the walls and above the doors or windows as you see fit to enhance the beauty of your home.

How To Choose The Best Colors For Stucco

You can paint stucco any color you like, but neutral colors seem to have wide appeal. If you plan to sell your home someday, you may want to select a color that is currently popular on the market and that has mass appeal. Since it's your home, you can choose any color you like as long as it is okay with your HOA if you live in an HOA community. You may also want to consider your home's architecture when choosing the color that complements it most. For instance, stucco is a good material for a Mediterranean-style home. You may want a light yellow color for the walls and a deeper rust color for the stucco trim. Beige walls and white trim is another good combination. Remember to consider the color of your roof when choosing paint so the colors work well together. Painting your home a light color can help it look larger and brighter, however, a darker color can be brightened some with a light trim color.

Stucco has a very long lifespan and will protect your home for decades. It's an excellent choice when you want to give your home a new look and you'll be able to change the color of the walls and stucco trim any time you are ready for another new look for your home.
