Burnaby Stucco LTD provides high-quality acrylic stucco installation and repair services.
Acrylic stucco is an elastomeric stucco finish, which is a readymade stucco mixture found in the market. Like traditional cement, stucco cement will need to mix it with water to activate it. Acrylic stucco does not need to be painted, as it has vibrant colors and provides a high definition finish over the walls.
The cost of Acrylic stuccos is much higher than traditional stucco cement. Acrylic stuccos are also known as synthetic stucco. Cement stucco, unlike synthetic stucco, is a natural material made with sand, lime, and cement mixer.
Pros of Using Acrylic Stucco

History of Acrylic Stucco
Acrylic stucco came into use after World War II when the building contractor started using it as a repair choice for repairing damaged buildings during the war. The readily available material was faster and easy to install.
How is Synthetic Stucco Installed?
Cement stucco and acrylic stucco start the same way by installing building paper and then applying stucco coating. For applying acrylic stucco, the paint is first primed with a primer coat to seal small cracks or indents on the walls. The walls are then uniformly coated with it.
