At the end of the day, it’s a matter of personal choice for everybody. Asking your contractor for a colour map, as well as driving or walking around neighbourhoods looking at what other people have done with their stucco colours, will help you determine what colours you like and don’t like.Do you want to learn more?

For decades, stucco has been used to cover and decorate exterior and interior walls and ceilings. Stucco comes in a variety of textures and shades, and it is the cladding of choice for most new building, remodel, and renovation projects.
Hard Coat Stucco and EIFS are the two major types of exterior stucco, which include hundreds of different systems (Exterior Insulation and Finish System). Stucco with a hard coat is the preferred method for residential or multifamily housing, and it is increasingly being used for commercial projects due to its lower cost. EIFS is most widely used in commercial construction, but it’s also popular in high-end custom homes.
With a cementitious base layer, Hard Coat Stucco is usually applied in 2-3 coats. One Coat Stucco and Three Coat Stucco are two hard coat stucco systems that are widely used. Two coats of cement base and one coat of finish coat make up traditional three-coat stucco. One Coat Stucco is a two-coat process that consists of one cementitious base coat and one finish coat instead of two base coats. Because of its low cost, One Coat Stucco has become much more common in recent decades. With the exception of One Coat Stucco, which requires less steps and takes less time, the materials used and implementation method are almost identical for both systems. Both systems have similar design and performance capabilities, but Three Coat Stucco is normally stronger and will crack less in most situations. Both hard coat systems have the same finish coat application.
