Important Information About Stucco Color
Conventional stucco color pigments are subject to normal variations – and cannot be counted on to absolutely / positively be color perfect. Minor variations in stucco color are normal and should be expected.
At Apptek we will always make sure that when we buy our color coat that the inventory comes from the same batch number if at all possible. In addition to its normal variations out of the bag, other factors can impact color variations including temperature, humidity, sun and wind. We will always use the benefit of our many years of experience to do what is necessary to minimize color variations.
In conventional stucco, dark colors tend to be more problematic in achieving optimum color consistency. When the color is darkened past a critical threshold by volume, the color will have a tendency to exhibit significant blotchiness despite substantial care in the installation process. Therefore care should be exhibited when choosing dark colors in conventional stucco.
Acrylic finish colors are far more stable than conventional stucco colors. Acrylic colors can be made up to match virtually any color – with very good stability and no blotchiness. Acrylic colors, like conventional colors, do become a bit more problematic when dark colors are chosen and must be applied with care by knowledgeable tradesmen.
Matching Your Colors
Your existing stucco colors can be matched either utilizing standard colors, or lab matching done by our stucco provider. This is true with both conventional and synthetic (acrylic) finishes.
Our stucco manufacturers provide color charts with standard colors. Also, if you can provide a sample, we can have the lab make up custom matching samples for your approval.
