pigmented stucco vs. painting. please help!
my contractor and his framing crew all recommend using the pigmented stucco for our almost complete house. the price he quoted will be just about the same as the paint job and of course we'd save on painting in years to come. my biggest concern is water stains. i see a lot of new homes that have what look to be permanent water stains or discolored areas, not the look i'm after in a modern house. i've also heard it's harder to match a color when mixing the stucco than matching a paint color. i don't want to use any of their existing colors. we live in the san francisco bay area so stucco here is a way of life. any help is greatly appreciated. thankyouthankyou.
