<p>I've been absent from here because of a number of projects I have on the go.  The stucco on the house is finally done.  I didn't stucco it, I had professionals come in to that.  I did, however, do all the prep work, built the trim around the windows, and rebuilt the gables and vents.  here are some before and after pics.</p>

<p>Quick question.  Do they always leave the old siding on when putting on stucco?  Or am I missing something in the pics?  Also, is that a sort of 'vent' all along the upper edge near the soffit?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Other than that, it sure changes the look of the house!!</p>

<p>Wow!  It's beautiful!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Stucco is very common in these parts, well not these parts but the SoCal parts (lots of wood siding or whatever your house was in these parts), so is stucco common in Calgary?  I notice your neighbors don't have stucco either. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>And for that matter - why stucco in some parts and not in others?  Tradition?</p>

They don't usually put stuccoover the old siding, I tore of the vinyl before they started.  I only have about 8 feet of soffit on my house (over the front door).  The vents I was referring to are near the top of the house...they were rotten and needed replacing.<br><br><br>

Stucco was once popular here but people started going to vinyl.  Seems that people are once again swinging to stucco.  However, people are using acrylic rather than cement stucco due to costs..it's not as strong as cement....we went with cement.<br>

<p>Nice to see the Safe T Salt made it through the renos! </p>

<p>It is a nice job, for sure.  There's not a lot of it around here.  Mostly siding in these parts.  We'd like to replace the siding on our place with new stuff but we'd have to be prepared to put in new insulation and windows while we were at it.  And right now we're not.  Someday, though.</p>
