Smooth coated foam is Styrofoam that has been wrapped with mesh and given a bath in smooth finish solution, which comes in pieces as big as 8 feet. Once the piece receives enough layers of the hardened smooth finish, it is ready to be installed. These pieces are also installed using Poly Prep and will have a smooth, paintable surface. Although it would be best to install this type of foam when installing new stucco or re-stucco’ing a building, they can also be installed on existing finished stucco or even painted stucco.
Sand Stone and Lime Stone coated foam are similar to the Smooth coated foam, but have a thicker more diverse finish. Whether it is the Sand Stone or Limestone finish, these pieces can be modified to a wide range of colors and finishes, including Travertine. The application process is identical to that of the smooth coat foam. Unlike Standard and Smooth coated foam, Sand Stone and Limestone come in 32” pieces. This creates a sectional look to any window and adds great design detail.
