Lunar is not actually a paint color. It is the integral color of the stucco. We use a true 3 coat stucco and the final coat has the color mixed in.

Questions:
what is the stone -type/color- used? My home is a similar color and love the complimenting patio.

Also, is exterior wrought iron in black?

Stucco color - Who is the supplier of the main stucco color- Lunar? I have searched online and I can't seem to find it. Thanks again. I love this color! My husband thinks it has a green tint and I don't think so. Thoughts?

It depends on your location. BASF makes Finestone. You can search for distributors here: https://www.basf.com/us/en/products-and-industries/General-Business-Topics/finestone-eifs-stucco-specialty-finishes/distributors.html    If you are not a stucco professional, search Google for stucco contractors that use the Finestone products for more information. This is not a product that can be applied by just anyone. It is a strenuous three step process that only the most experienced stucco contractors should attempt. I hope this helps, even though it's been a while since you asked. I just saw your question.

The major trim you see in this pic is buff possibly SW 7683 Buff or similar, with regards to the mentioned SW3524 Chestnut this is not paint but a dark brown stain which I cannot see in the pic but possibly on minor trim.

I have a color chart for Finestone Stucco. The #64-Lunar looks alot darker than this on the sample card. I know that with exterior colors they often look lighter once they are up. Is this the same color/stucco brand used on this house?

Yes this is Finestone Stucco. Remember colors show differently depending on your monitor too. Be sure and have you contractor do a mock up for you on a 4x8 sheet of material for you to look at.

Hi Guys, It's another year that has passed since this conversation. Has anyone found the paint color to match Lunar & Buff? I am painting my existing stucco and like all of you, love this combo! Any info would be greatly appreciated!

The best thing to do would be to contact stucco contractors around you and ask if they use the Finestone line of stucco from BASF. Search Google for stucco contractor Finestone for the best results. If you find some, you could probably get a color match from them or a 12" x 12" sample of the product mixed with the lunar color. Then take it to your local home improvement store for a match and get samples to try. Another option is to get a physical color chart from Finestone. Although just like color chips at home improvement stores they are not always as it is on the chip once it's on the wall. Unless they have real samples and not printed colors. If you or anyone ever determine a color match, please post it here. I am going to be contacting some stucco contractors near me to do some stucco repairs on one of my homes. I will be searching for those that use Finestone, and if I can, I will get a sample and a color match. But just know the color may not be identical. The texture has a lot to do with the color. The home in the photo is using a fine texture so that is the type of sample you should ask for from a contractor. Good luck!

Just had a question about the trim around the windows! - Love the color combo! Absolutely stunning! If you wouldn't mind sharing, is the cast stone trim around the windows also the "buff" color? We were planning on using "sandstone" but whatever you used is beautiful! Thanks so much!

Our stucco applications are a true masonry product. They are a 3 coat application. When it comes to securing the cast stone there are a few difference applications and it seams every cast stone contractor has their own opinion on which technique is best. However, it seems to come down to three basic approaches 1) Slot cuts 2) Dowel Pins or Screws or 3) In Beds or Threaded Inserts.

I did a quick BLOG with more detail here: http://www.verandafinehomes.com/2014/02/securing-cast-stone/

The trim around the windows is SW3524. It is the darker brown color. This is also the color of the trim on the window grids, eves and the downspouts. The walls are not painted they are stucco with an integral color. The light brown around the windows is a buff cast stone.

The only paint on the exterior is located on the doors, windows and trim on the eves.

No. The windows is this courtyard are true wood windows. On the inside the windows are painted to match the trim on the interior.

This is one of the great things about wood windows! On the exterior they can be clad or painted to match your exterior trim and on the inside they can be stained or painted to match your interior decor.

Wood windows also provide a great thermal break. While we love to use wood windows everywhere we can, many times we will use wood windows on the front elevation and vinyl on the sides. This allows us to have the high class look of the wood windows were everyone is looking and save money (and still have a great performing window) on the side elevations and rear.

Stucco Color/Application - We are building a house and I've finally found my stucco colors - these!! Now I see where you've already named the color, the Lunar xxx, but I'm so unaware to the stucco process. Do I need only tell my stucco contractor your Lunar name and number, or are there other coats/paints/colors that go under/over, etc. In other words, if I want this exact match on my house, how do I convey this to the stucco man?

They are Elk architectural shingles - color Antique Slate

This home was built in late 2007. In 2007 Elk and GAF merged, but were still running separate brand lines.

Now GAF and Elk shingles are basically one in the same.

I believe the windows flanking the fireplace are 2-0 5-0

By grills are you referring to the divided light panes? The individual panes should be roughly 9" wide by 11" tall or so.

I'm ordering wood windows from Marvin but they require lapping the exterior paint onto the glass to seal the window to sash rail seem. Do you seal yours this way or no? They look too perfect in the picture like they are clad. Thanks
