Southwest Minneapolis Stucco and Trim Renovation

  This cute bungalow in the Kenny neighborhood of Minneapolis was in need of a complete exterior renovation.  The existing stucco had been painted, so we first needed to sandblast the home to remove the paint.  We then installed aluminum to all of the trim on the doors and windows, and covered the soffit and fascia with whit aluminum, too.  There were several stucco repairs that were necessary once the trim work was completed, including areas where the roof flashing was corrected to ensure proper drainage. Once the stucco repairs and trim were complete, we applied a new two-coat stucco finish to the entire home.  We used a knock-down dash texture, and a warm gray color to contrast the white trim.  The end result was a beautiful, low-maintenance exterior on this great Minneapolis home.  The homeowner was very pleased with the new stucco and trim, and the durability of the stucco and trim will keep her happy for many, many years!  ...

Stucco Addition in Minneapolis

This two-and-a-half story addition is in the Kenwood neighborhood of Minneapolis.  There were several unique characteristics to the stucco on the home, that we needed to duplicate on the addition.  The soffits on the home were stucco, so we needed to apply stucco to the soffits on the addition.  The stucco on the foundation of the home extended past the stucco on the walls about two inches, so we needed to build out the stucco on the foundation of the addition to match the home.  There was also a decorative stucco band underneath the second-floor windows, which we needed to replicate on the addition. We worked closely with the general contractor to ensure all of these details were completed according to the plans and the homeowner’s wishes.  The color and texture of the addition matched the existing home very closely, and the details on the new stucco matched those on the home extremely well.  The stucco on this addition to a great Minneapolis home blends in with the existing exterior of the home.  The stucco details enhance the overall exterior, and provide a classic look to the new construction.  ...
