As an exterior, stucco may not be known for bright color or bold dimensional architecture. But it should. At Nurse Stucco we believe Stucco and Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) offer greater design flexibility than any other cladding. Consider modern buildings with glossy metallic finishes that resemble metal panels. Or classical architecture with walls, and columns and details that appear to be cut from natural stone. Or simulated brick, virtually indistinguishable from traditional masonry. All prime examples of today’s exciting and innovative stucco products in action. With innovative products and the appropriate application technique provided by the skilled craftsmen at Nurse Stucco, it’s all possible!
“The First Step toward making good choices is to develop an awareness of products, color choices, and texture options available.”

Synthetic Stucco Finishes – Dryvit
In 1969, Dryvit introduced the concept of combining both continuous insulation (ci) and design-flexible aesthetics into a single exterior wall system, and called it “Outsulation.” Over half a million buildings later, Outsulation systems are a trusted choice for architects, building owners and contractors who want a high performance, insulated cladding solution that can provide everything needed from a building code perspective, and all that is desired from an aesthetic standpoint.
Fog coating is a process that re-color coats the original stucco while maintaining the porosity of the stucco. It can be made in any stucco color (except the very darkest colors), and allows for patching, blending, freshening up, and re-coloring stucco. Fog coating will adhere to the original stucco texture and give the same or similar texture as what previously existed. CLICK HERE for more details.
