I am about to "white wash" my white stucco house. We are doing it ourselves but you can find cement masons who will do this work. The "white wash" does not have to remain white however, there are pigments now that can be added to the mix to make it almost any color you'd like, except for soft yellow. The recipe is for two parts white portland cement and one part white hydrated lime-type S. Mix with water to make the mixture cream like in consistency. Add colored pigments if you'd like to. Be sure to mix each batch with equal amounts of each product to ensure color consistency. It can be sprayed on and back brushed to fill the little cracks and grooves or just brushed on. And seriously, the materials to do my 3 bedroom house cost less than $20!

The stucco panels from Hardie are not available in Canada. I just checked.

I just painted my house a creamy white with blue trim and the neighbors want to know what I'm going to do with the brown roof. This gives me courage to keep the 10 year old roof and my color choices. Thanks.
