Today we are talking about stucco. Yes, stucco the mixture made of cement, sand, water, and a dash of lime. In southwest Florida majority of homes have stucco on the exterior which can be done in a few different ways. But for this house, we chose to go with one of the more popular finishes called a sand float. A sand float finish is usually applied in one to two applications. Once finished it gives a nice clean look to the exterior of the house. This house also has a plank siding look to it. This is done using vinyl trim pieces that are put on before the stucco is applied. Customers have the choice to do the whole house with planking or just the front areas to save cost. Stucco has many great advantages to it. Especially in waterfront properties.
