The following are samples of stucco textures. These illustrations are only guides. Appearance of textures are greatly altered with color and lighting. Keep in mind that deeper colors require more pigment, which raises the cost. Non-standard colors are almost inevitably more expensive as well. It is prudent to have a sample made before making a final selection of textured finish.
