ASK GOLDEN TROWEL ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF STUCCO

Consider replacing your conventional siding with stucco or find out how to maintain your existing stucco exterior. Golden Trowel Stucco wants you to be fully informed about your options and benefits. If your particular questions aren’t answered in our FAQ, please call or email us. We are always ready to help.

WHAT KIND OF COLOUR SELECTION DO I HAVE WITH STUCCO?

You have a choice of a finish coat with pigments mixed into the white cement mixture for a consistent tone in an almost endless selection of colours. Golden Trowel Stucco also scrubs cement-based paints specially made for stucco into the surfaces. The paint cures into your stucco for a long-lasting and natural look in a wide selection of colours.

HOW DO I CLEAN MY EXTERIOR STUCCO SURFACES?

One of stucco’s benefits is its low-maintenance surface. For common dirt, pre-wet your stucco surface from the bottom up and then gently rinse it down, all with a garden hose. If you have stains, detergent cleaners can be effective. Read the directions for use or contact Golden Trowel Stucco for cleaning suggestions.

HOW DURABLE ARE STUCCO EXTERIORS? HOW LONG SHOULD MY STUCCO LAST?

Stucco can stand up to a variety of climates – hot or cold and dry or humid – for many years. Stucco has a hard surface that breathes but also resists wind and rain damage. Golden Trowel Stucco gives every client our 10-year warranty, but some stucco surfaces have lasted for 100 years or more.

WHAT KINDS OF REPAIRS MIGHT MY EXTERIOR STUCCO WALLS NEED?

With contraction from seasonal weather changes and wind, sometimes stucco needs repairs with a new finishing coat or sealing. Repair with a bonding agent and paint is also effective for areas of peeling or flaking. Re-stuccoing is seldom necessary.

Ask for an on-site inspection. Golden Trowel Stucco assesses the repairs you need and gives you a free estimate.
