Jobs in progress-updated Sept. 25, 2010
               Over 11 years of jobs in progress, update # 114 !
Greetings from Virginia. All exterior finishes you see are REAL Portland cement and
REAL sand and not the toxic synthetic (fake) junk  that comes out of a bucket.
Did you know that producing one ton of synthetic stucco finish produces about 8 tons of toxic waste?

Stucco addition and remodel in McLean, Virginia
for Gilday renovations

Rest of house stuccoed
Scratch coat on painted brick
Remember the addition we did last update ?
The owner liked it so much she wanted to do the rest of the house, at least most of it.
Finish coat is REAL portland cement and REAL sand. Color is from Expo stucco in San Diego.

Bricks had already been painted, requiring chipping the bricks and an acrylic bonder in the mortar.

I used a gallon of black paint tint to make this gun metal grey color. Texture on bottom is rougher for a stacked look. This will be a great place for Moe to sit and smoke cigars in cold weather. Stone work is by Jeff Jones
of Custom stonescaping.

 Typical patch showing how we fixed a crumbling bottom. Do you have an ugly bottom?
