Regardless of the type of stucco to be installed, each step must be completed correctly to achieve the desired results. The most common or popular stucco systems may include:

  • The Three Coat System: Beginning with the lathing consisting of a metal weep screed wrapped around the bottom of the building and a weather resistant paper like product applied to the exterior walls followed by the attachment of a furred wire netting, similar to chicken wire. This wire is used to secure the three layers of  stucco known as the scratch coat, brown coat and texture coat.
  • The One Coat System: Not really just one coat as the only difference from the one above is the replacement of the scratch coat with a one inch thick insulation board of sorts.

With both of these stucco systems, color of choice can be added to the texture coat eliminating the need for painting. This finishing coat itself cane take on any number of looks or textures.
