A big color stucco house in McLean, Virginia

Stucco house in McLean, VA
Stucco Window sills    Finish color is REAL portland cement and REAL sand, and not the toxic fake stuff you see on so many new houses. Color is a custom color from Expo stucco in San Diego. LEFT: Window sills are my design and are functional. Note how sill slants at top for water run-off and slants at bottom for a drip edge. The angle at the bottom prevents water from running back to the wall, extending the life of the wall and avoiding water infiltration.
