Acrylic Stucco

Definition

A type of stucco made from acrylic resins and/or polymers, with crushed quartz and sand to give it definition. An acrylic stucco finish looks very similar to a traditional stucco finish.

Things you need to know

Acrylic stucco is easy to match, so there is little color variation from one bucket to the next, whereas with traditional stucco, it must all be mixed at once to keep the color uniform, which usually requires a cement mixer. Acrylic stucco also requires more skill to apply, because it dries faster.

Also known as

Synthetic stucco, elastomeric stucco finish

Cost Considerations

Acrylic stucco costs more than traditional stucco; $0.25 to $0.50 per sq. ft. vs. $0.05 to $0.10.
