Our company offers a full range of stucco & stone services for the exterior of your building. These systems can be applied to the entire home or just to the front, depending on what look you want to go for. Stucco is an energy efficient option that can help lower your heating and cooling costs while also providing weather protection. It can save your home from the elements and possible weather-related damages. Stucco can be applied to just about every type of exterior wall material, both residential and commercial. You also have several options to choose from when it comes to colour and texture.
Stucco must be applied over lath, also known as paper wire, in order to keep it away from the frame sheathing. It’s then applied in three thin coats, with the first being forced into the lath. A three-coat system is what helps provide a strong base for the system.
At A.M. Stucco we provide a wide range of services that include, but are not limited to, commercial & residential, conventional stucco, synthetic Stucco, E.I.F.S., textured finishes, synthetic finishes, faux finishes, stucco painting, culture stone exterior, moisture, water proof and stucco caulking. If you have a question about a service, send us a message through the contact section of this site. We even offer a complimentary estimate where we’ll come out to you!
Cultured stone refers to manufactured stones that are a man-made product cast out of cement, pigmented dyes and aggregates. It creates a shape and look like natural stone and because of its lighter weight it’s easier to install in a variety of applications. It can be adhered directly onto the surface you want to enhance.
While cultured stone will never fully replace natural stone, it does provide you with a few more options for your home. Our Calgary-based masonry contractors can help you go through your options and decide whether cultured stone or natural stone is better suited to your home improvement project. If you’re looking to add a water feature to your home, for example, then natural stone would be the best way to go. Installation is the same for manufactured and natural stone veneers and done right both are equally durable.
Natural stone is exactly as the name suggests. Its stone quarried from the earth that has nothing added and nothing removed from it. It can be left in its original shape or carved to create a desired look. It will never fade in the sunlight and will forever hold its original beautiful look and appeal. Exterior natural stone requires little maintenance to keep it looking fresh, just the occasional pressure wash, if necessary.
Another perk to natural stone is that it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or toxins, so you can rest easy knowing your interior stone installation is a healthy and sustainable design. It’s also recyclable and can be utilized to create a one of a kind look for your home or business.
Small stones can be used in a mosaic pattern or adhered together for completely new appearance. Whatever look you’re hoping to achieve through stone enhancements, we can help. We’ll show you different options, colours and possibilities for your space, some you may not have even thought of.

You can use masonry as a way to show off your personality both in and outside your home, including on a fireplace and it can be used on any type of wall.

A beautifully designed and installed wood deck has many benefits. Not only is it a great place for friends and family to dine or hang out, it’s also an excellent area for sunbathing. It provides a safe area for children to play and is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors while having all the conveniences of home at hand.
Not sure which type of decking would work best for your home? We can meet with you to discuss options to figure out the right fit. Cedar is often a popular choice for decks in Calgary. One of the main reasons is that it’s an affordable option. It looks great and comes at a great price. It also never really needs to be painted. A simple seal will help preserve the wood, while keeping it looking fresh for years to come.
Pressure treated decking is another option. Pressure treating means the method of preserving wood to help it withstand the elements, pests and any decay. Most pressure treated lumber will last about 20 years and can be stained or painted. It is also a cost-effective decking option. Composite decking has come a long way over the years. It cuts and drills like wood, is easy to install and comes in a variety of colours. It’s also smooth to the touch while also being both stain and fade resistant.
Vinyl decking works well in our Calgary climate and is often recommended by builders. It’s stain and scratch resistant, won’t cause splinters and comes in a variety of colours. Because it’s a man-made product, it doesn’t need the maintenance a traditional wood deck does. It’s also generally one of the cheaper decking options.
At A.M. Stucco, we have a century of experience in Calgary as your trusted wood deck builders. Whether you are looking for cedar decking, pressure treated decking, hardwood decking, composite & vinyl we have the solution to enhancing your outdoor space. We strive to provide our customers with competitive prices and always back our work with our extensive two-year warranty.
We offer a full line of sports and commercial fence products to serve municipalities, school boards and the business community in Calgary. Having a properly installed fence system not only protects your property, it can also protect the people in it.
Correct and sturdy fencing will help deter break-ins, which in turn protects the property within the fence. Our security and warehouse fencing are typically chain-link style. It’s a simple option that allows you to see what’s happening in the areas surrounding your property, which is another deterrent for burglars.
Our athletic field fencing options in Calgary include baseball diamonds and backstops, and tennis courts. A fence system around an athletic area helps separate it from other parts of the park or green space. It also makes sure people aren’t able to just walk into a field or on a court once a sporting event has begun and will also preventing overcrowding.
Sometimes all you need is to protect a smaller entrance rather than an entire warehouse, office space or business. We can create and install different gates that will provide you with an extra layer of protection based off your needs. These include security gates, commercial gates and cantilever gates. If you need a custom estate driveway gate, or any other custom gate work we can fabricate something for you in house.
All our enclosures can be designed to meet your specific needs and come with the option of gate automation and access control. Whether you want an aluminum or glass railing system, chain link, wood or vinyl fencing give A.M. Stucco a call for a quote today.
Retaining walls are not only useful, they can also be aesthetically pleasing when done right. When you hire A.M. Stucco we will assess the area and can suggest material types that will work best in terms of function and looks. One popular option is stacked natural stone. It easily compliments any property type, while giving it a timeless look. Another choice is stone veneer, which requires a well-designed plan before starting any work to ensure moisture is controlled. With this method a wall is engineered and then the veneer is carefully and artfully placed onto the cement by one of our masonry contractors. There’s no end to the design possibilities when you choose to go with a stone veneer retaining wall.
Visually, limestone is one of the most appealing stones to use for masonry. It comes in a variety of shades, making it easier to find a colour to complement your landscaping. It’s also one of the strongest and most versatile stone options. Limestone blocks can be stacked two to three blocks high to create a retaining wall. Past that concerns about stability will become a factor. For the wall to be stable, the weight of the blocks has to be more than the soil it’s holding.
Concrete also provides a couple of solutions if you’re looking to build a retaining wall to even out your landscape. The two main options used consist of concrete block, which is just as it sounds. The blocks are stacked upon each other, with weep holes inserted between every third block. Poured concrete gives you the option of having one solid wall. The thickness can be determined by how much soil you want to hold back. Other material options include bricks, wood and timber.
With any retaining wall, if water is not redirected properly it can erode the base material and in turn can affect the structural support, causing it to bulge, lean and, in some cases, topple. A wall that has been thoughtfully engineered will prevent water from getting in behind the wall, while providing an exit route.
A.M. Stucco has the team and the years of experience to build you a retaining wall that will last the test of time. Call us anytime to get a free estimate on your project.

Bobcats come in a variety of sizes and because they have several attachments there are literally hundreds of applications they can be used for. Some of those attachments include standard buckets, mowers, sweepers, trenchers, and stump grinders.

A Bobcat – Skid Steer will easily allow you to dig the depth you need, and move the dirt to a new location, or dump it in the back of trailer. The hydraulic breaker attachment makes it easy to break through concrete for just about any construction project. Our brushcat rotary cutter will allow us to handle any tough brush-clearing jobs you may have.
