Finishes

Sand Finish (A Style that Floats)

One of the most popular stucco finishes is the Sand Finishes. As the name states, a sand finish looks as if someone added sand into the mix. A common nickname for a sand finish is float finish and can it be achieved easily with Ekoplast50. After applying Ekoplast50 to desired thickness, allow it to cure for few hours and use sponge float to obtain this unique and classy look. Sand finishes are perfect for hiding imperfections. Not only that but also they are easy to patch up as well.

Spanish Lace Finish (Grace and Elegance)

Among the different types of stucco finishes, we have the good-old Spanish lace finish. This texture is quite common for homeowners. It is often called skip-trowel finish as well. Skip-trowel finishes are great for covering flaws and go great with both homes and offices and one can achieve this finish using EkoPlast50 after base is cured to touch and apply some loose material using a trowel. Just like the sand finish, you can choose between a fine, medium, and coarse style.

Santa Barbara Finish (Soft and Soothing)

The Santa Barbara finish is the perfect option for people who look for California adobe style finish. To get this look, allow Ekoplast50 to cure to cure to touch and with loose material and using pool trowel smooth the surface to desired smoothness. Have sprayer handy and hydrate the surface if needed.

Cat Face Finish (Known Also as Montalvo or California)

Continuing with our list of different types of stucco finishes, we have cat face finishes. Cat face finishes count with a smooth surface with small to large rough areas. These rough areas are what we call “cat faces.” This is because they look as though if cats are peeking through the texture. They are achieved with two layers, first a rough coat, and then a smooth layer that allows the cat faces to peek through.

Worm Finish (Get Your Groove On)

Another type of finishes that can be done using Ekoplast50 is the worm finishes. The worm style consists of small indentations (let’s call these grooves) on the stucco and the size of the grooves is determined by the size of the glass beads. When looking for a unique and exciting style for your siding, then this is your go-to option! The drawback, however, is that it is hard to achieve since you’ll need to apply it by hand and rub it in circles.

Smooth Finish (Creamy, Plush, Refreshing)

Last but not least, we have what is commonly known as the most complex of the different types of stucco finishes, the smooth style. Although it takes a lot of expertise to do this type of finish, we cannot deny that it gives a great look to your walls. Just as the name states it, this type of texture consists of a smooth final touch that is achieved by using the pool trowel. With smooth finishes, the only downside this style may bring is that it is difficult to patch and cracks more often compared to other finishes.

Textured Finish

Textured finishes are now becoming very popular and maybe getting in a variety of ways in many different designs. Particular effects of textured finish can be getting by scraping the surface of the rendering with a straight edge with the edge of a steel trowel. The time to scrape must be chosen correctly. Some judgments are needed in this respect. Insufficient and excessive drying and hardening of the mortar surface have to be avoided. The period may vary from an hour to a day, depending on both the climatic conditions.

Scrapped Finish

The final type of finish is similar to the Worm finish but done with straight movements of the float.

Dash Finish (Roughcast Style)

Dash finishes are widely known because of their highly textured gravel look. You can choose from light texture to dense texture. For a dash finish, you’ll need to spray the mix onto the wall
