Stucco Finishes

OK, all you stucco experts out there: What is the name for this traditional stucco finish that looks like the stucco was literally spattered on. They actually used a tool that flicked it on the surface with metal tines like you'd see in an old music box. It's not pebble-dash - no pebbles. Just strait consistently spattered cement stucco.

Hi,

I think that you are thinking of a dash coat; however, there are about a half dozen different types of dash coats and about 30 different types of finishes for traditional 3-coat stucco. Go to this link for descriptions and photos of the various types of stucco finishes.

Perfect! That's precisely what I needed and will save it to my link library.

Thanks Mike.

PS. Around here, there is a pebble-dash, which is quite popular - gaudy I think. It has little river rocks ranging in size between large peas to marbles.

Don't get me started. Between typing with two thumbs, and a phone that wants to anticipate and insert what you were about to type, you can't win. It may be time to turn off the smart-spell feature. That's not to suggest that I can spell, because I struggle with spelling. But, sometimes when I see what ended up on the screen, it's pretty clear that smart spell got me again. I've actually watched it change a word right before my eyes.

I sure wish you had caught that one earlier.
