The Different Types Of Stucco Textures

For builders and homeowners searching for stunning aesthetics combined with robustness and durability, stucco is a fantastic alternative. This kind of finish can help your house fit in with the area while still making it stand out as distinctive in its own right.


How is that even possible? Even though the majority of the houses or businesses in your community have stucco finishes, they probably don’t all have the same texture or color. Stucco offers a variety of texture options, and this adaptability helps explain why it is such a well-liked siding material. Here are some stucco texture choices for your Edison, house, or place of business.


Texture options for stucco


Making the ultimate choice can occasionally be challenging because there are so many different stucco texture alternatives. Here are some potential choices for you, along with some of their main characteristics:


  • One of the most beautiful stucco textures is that of a cat’s face. It consists of smoother areas encircled by rougher areas. Stucco can be used to create this either naturally or artificially. The spacing of the rough patches will affect how the final result looks.
  • Lace and skip: When you think about stucco siding, this is probably the first thing that comes to mind. It works for both residential and commercial buildings and is excellent for disguising trouble areas. This type of finish can be applied in a variety of methods, giving the finished product a wide range of subtly different looks. Two coats are applied, either manually or with a sprayer, and a trowel is used to smooth it out.
  • Dash finish: This cost-effective solution supports fine, medium, or heavy patterns. Air pressure is frequently used to spray it on, giving the finish its natural variations. As needed, it is easily patchable.
  • Smooth finish: Stucco is a challenging material to work with, but when done correctly, the result is a smooth, level surface that is simple to color and maintain. This calls for artificial or acrylic stucco, while fine cement-based stucco can also do this. Repairing it may be more challenging than with other textures.
  • Santa Barbara: Although it has a comparable texture to a smooth finish, this style is more akin to traditional adobe. It used unique sand particles to create this appearance, yet when finished, it looks smooth. However, it is more challenging to repair than other textures, much like a smooth finish.
  • Sand/float: This solution is preferred by many commercial structures. It can be shaped to seem in a range of ways, from airy to thick. It is adaptable and simple to patch.
