New Stucco Construction
Investing in a new building is an important investment decision. To get the most out of it, all of your service providers need to perform at their best. It can be very discouraging to see your new building develop mold and other structural problems before it’s even occupied. If it happens to a commercial building, the loss can be devastating. On most new buildings in Los Angeles, plain stucco is applied in the three-coat process. This ensures the strength, longevity, and protection of your EIFS for days to come. The three layers are scratch, brown, and finish. However, for best results, the installation should be done by a professional who understands the water barrier and can ensure that the whole process is done in the required manner.
How We Do New Construction Stucco
Before installing the scratch coat, we first make sure that the battening and waterproofing are done correctly. The anti-scratch coating is usually installed over the exposed furring wire. Our experienced best new stucco contractors will use the best materials and in the right proportions for your new construction. The composition of the risk layer is made up of aggregates, sand, and water. To provide you with the first cement barrier on your new stucco wall construction, we have made the scratch coat application thicker. After application, we mark the surface in an even direction. This creates a gripping platform that the brown coat sits on.
After the scraping layer, the brown layer is installed, which is also a mixture of water, aggregate, and sand. This layer is evenly distributed over the scratch layer and is less thick. This adds another layer of protection to your new build. We leave the brown fur for about 7 days to heal. The healing process is important because it limits any future movement or settlement.
The last coat we apply to your new build is the color coat. This coating includes a base mix with an added color package. The base mix may include a 16/20, 20/30, or 30/30 grit sanded finish. This is what will give the exterior of your building its preferred texture.
To give your new construction amazing color, we mix the base with the color to create an even mix of stucco and color. This saves the cost and the need to paint after the final coat is applied.
