Here are a few of the stucco finish options offered by Design Stucco Ltd.

EIFS Stucco/ Exterior Insulation Finish System

For quality, durability, and overall maintenance free care, you just can’t beat EIFS. EIFS is a multi-layered wall system that provides you with the benefit of excellent energy efficiency, unlimited colour choices, and texture and design that will make any home or building more attractive.

The EIFS system is made up of the following:

  • A waterproofing application is applied over an exterior sheathing  prior to the insulation board
  • Insulation board consists of polystyrene or polyisocyanurate (ISO) foam. It is then secured to the exterior wall with either special adhesives or mechanical attachments
  • A water-resistant base coat is applied on top of the insulation, which is then reinforced with fibre glass mesh for additional strength and durability
  • On top of the water-resistant base coat, an attractive acrylic  stucco finish is applied,  which results in a colourfast and crack-resistant finish

Traditional Stucco

Stucco has long since been used as a coating for the outside of homes and buildings. Traditional stucco application is made up of two coats of a sand/cement mixture followed by a textured finish coat with added colour pigments. The result is a wall with a full depth of colour, and with over 100 colours and unlimited rich textural finishes to choose from, you can instantly create great curb appeal for your home.

Acrylic Stucco

Acrylic stucco is made up of the same sand and cement base as traditional stucco, but the second coat is levelled and floated to create a smooth finish. The Acrylic Finish Coat is then applied, and with an unlimited colour selection, you can choose a specific shade to match any paint chip colour.

Acrylic finishes offer you a smooth, sleek, modern look that’s appealing for home owners and commercial property owners alike.

Types of Dash Finishes – From California Slop Dash to Rock Dash

If you’ve ever wondered about the finish of a home with pebbles or rocks, or embedded into the surface, you’re probably looking at a Rock Dash or Slop Dash finish.

A Rock Dash finish is created by dashing tiny crushed rocks or pebbles onto the surface of recently applied wet stucco. This process embeds the material into the wall.

A Slop Dash finish is produced by throwing the stucco cement onto the wall to create a heavy or light popcorn texture. Once applied, it can be painted the colour of your choice.

In contrast, a California Slop Dash or Torpedo finish is created by adding pebbles or crushed rock directly to the stucco mix . It is then applied and painted your choice of colour.

Rain Screen Systems

High performance, long lasting, and energy efficient, Rain Screen Systems are designed for incidental moisture infiltration. During the rain screen construction process, the outer layer of a wall assembly is separated from the inner wall by an air space. The air space is designed with vertical furring strips or rain-screen drainage mats, and is then vented to the outside to allow moisture to escape at the bottom.

Rain Screen Systems ensure that any incidental moisture making its way through the outer layer of the wall will naturally travel out.

Architectural Mouldings

Custom made to create a stunning contemporary, modern, or classic design, Architectural mouldings come in a variety of styles and shapes that will work perfectly with your residential or commercial building. Choose from our selection of mouldings or pick through our unlimited design options using trims, corbels, sills, quoins, bands, and keystones to create your own unique look.

Commercial and Residential Cultured Stone

Rustic charm and contemporary style – that’s what cultured stone adds to your home. Whether you choose to add it to your interior or as a finish for your exterior, cultured stone or stone veneer can be used for everything from a fireplace surround, feature accent wall, or as a stunning façade for your entire home.
