Akrilon Architectural Coatings is a Canadian manufacturer of exterior coatings based in Calgary, Alberta. They have been in business for over 20 years and have worked on major projects all over Canada.
One of the reasons why EIFS ranks high in popularity is because of their infinite colour and texture options.
We offer plenty of different colours and textures that you can choose from, over 300 colours to be exact but any can be matched.
When we said infinite colours are available, we meant infinite colours are available. From neutral beige to bright green, there really is no limit although there are some things to consider. Bright green sounds great if you live in the Caribbeans but may not be the best choice for your neighbourhood.
You can start by looking below at some of the textures available. Your stucco contractor will also have a brochure, some may even have texture swatches on hand so you can get a good feel so to speak. And if they don’t, request one but you may want to hold off on that until you’ve chosen a colour.
Choosing a stucco colour can be a daunting task and you’ll want to make sure you get it right. We can help make your decision easier by following the steps below.
Take a drive
Drive around your neighbourhood and see what catches your eye and what you want to stay away from. Visit them at different times of the day to see how light affects the colour. Make note of the addresses for later.
Narrow your selection down to three (3) colours
Think about which colours would suit you and your home best.
Think about your neighbourhood.
Would your home blend in? Do you want it to stand out?
Think about re-sale value.
Would someone purchase it should you decide to sell?
Think about the other elements on your home.
Would it work well with the colour of your roof? Or maybe the stone or brick sections you may have? Consider these and you’ll be on your way to selecting the right stucco colour.
Request colour sample swatches from your contractor
Your stucco contractor will be more than happy to drive with you and view your selections which is why we previously recommended making a note of the addresses. Also request to see lighter and darker shades of your selections to choose your moulding colour. If you’re wanting something bold, use a darker shade for your mouldings. If you’re looking for a subtle tone, select something lighter.
Pin your samples on the wall
Put all of your selections on the wall. Again, look at them at different times of the day. Some stucco contractors may even paint a larger square on your wall but you may have to pay for the material. Once you’re satisfied, give your stucco contractor the go ahead.
Akrilon Colour Selector
We have a colour selector to use a general guidline. We recommend though that you obtain physical samples as colours on-screen do not translate exactly as shown. But nonetheless, this is a great place to begin.
