Picking a Stucco You Can Stick With

Stucco

Tips for Picking Stucco

Stucco covers about 65% of the face of a Castlerock Home. That is a lot of area that is primarily all one color. At Castlerock we also do a stucco banding on the face of the house dividing the rock from the main stucco and we also put a banding around the windows, vents, garage and doors. The banding is generally in a contrasting value to the main stucco, but the hue is within the same tones.

Keep It In the Family

Choose your stucco and banding from the same family as the rock and mortar you chose.  If you are in the Castlerock Homes show room there will be a sample of the rock selection.  Use the Sherwin-Williams paint deck to compare colors and see if the desired color complements or is found in the rock.  When you have matched a color with something in the rock, any value on the color card generally will look great with the rock.  We also suggest that you pick the banding color from the same card as your stucco.  This guarantees that all the colors will blend nicely together.

Castlerock Matching Mortar

This is an example of a Castlerock Home that chose to use mortar that matched the color of the rock.  Here you can see there is a very strong division between the rock and the stucco.  The only variation below the stucco banding comes from the changes in color in the rock, not the mortar.

All-Over Light Tones

This homeowner chose to match the mortar, rock, and stucco to have all the same tones.  This makes the homes very cohesive.  Your eye is more drawn to the windows and the beautiful arch over the door.  This is a great option for those who want the house to blend into the environment.
