Difference Between Synthetic & Traditional Stucco

Once you have decided to repair or finish your building with stucco, you have to decide whether you would like to use traditional or synthetic stucco. Each option has its own benefits, so it is very important to understand as much about each as possible. This way, you will be able to make an informed decision regarding which choice best suits your needs. Make sure you know all the facts before moving ahead with your plans.

Our highly experienced professional builders here at RB Plastering and Stucco, Inc. will make sure you are informed about your possible choices and help you make the right decision. The first step is understanding the differences between synthetic and traditional stucco.

Synthetic stucco—also known as acrylic or elastomeric stucco—is made from acrylic resins and polymers. It resembles high-quality paint and can contain sand to give it a bit of grit and definition. Depending on the manufacturer and specific type, synthetic stucco can have different grains to ensure you have the perfect consistency for your custom finish. Color choice is a strong point for synthetic stucco, due to the wide variety of colors possible with the use of acrylics. If you are looking for rich, vibrant colors, you may want to consider synthetic stucco.

Traditional stucco—also known as classic, cement, or hard-coat finish—is made from lime, sand, and water and has been used in construction for 5000 years. A modern variation of this technique replaces lime with Portland cement. Depending on the composition of materials, traditional stucco can vary widely in consistency. The finish can be more smooth and level, or textured and uneven, based on your style preferences.
