Custom took several test panels to get the right color.

I'm a stucco novice. This looks great! For tinting, is this an organic pigment, inorganic pigment, not acrylic I assume.

Sealant for Exterior Wood - What was used for sealing/weatherproofing the exterior wood (doors, windows)? What is the best sealant for natural wood? How often would this need sealing? I live in Pennsylvania where there are fairly cold winters and fairly hot summers.

Hi devonnephi - We used a spar urethane. It is formulated for exterior wood surfaces exposed to water, sunlight and temperature changes. In San Diego we have perhaps the mildest climate in the 48 - the finish in the image is now 4 years old and is holding up very well. I expect a few more years before minor cosmetic work will be required.

Check with your local painting contractor for specific regional recommendations and to help you get a quality long-lasting finish. Best - HM

I love this shed roof. Can you recommend someone in NJ who can do this for us? Also, is that cement on the exterior? I love it!

Hello susanrobertson - Thanks for writing. The roof fascia is a custom fabricated, interlocking sheet metal panel over wood framing. We had quite a few details in order to get the message across to the builder.

Sorry I don't have a recommendation for a fabricator in your area. You may want to start with your architect to get the details right, then check with your builder to get a recommendation for a quality sheet metal fabricator.

The walls are finished in exterior cement plaster (stucco) that was "hard-trowelled" for a concrete look. It's a very effective and low-maintenance material.

Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Best - Hector Magnus, AIA,

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Stucco Smooths Modern Home Exteriors
Here is another house where the variation on the surface gives the design a certain character. It seems to work well with wood, a material that his its own natural variations.
