Use this tool to easily calculate the cost of stucco for your project based on area and material cost.

## How to Use the Stucco Cost Calculator

This stucco cost calculator is designed to help you estimate the cost of applying stucco to a wall. Follow these steps to use the calculator:

- Enter the height of the wall in feet.
- Enter the width of the wall in feet.
- Enter the number of coats you plan to apply. Default is 1.
- Enter the cost per square foot of stucco material.
- Enter the waste percentage to account for material loss. Default is 10%.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the estimated total cost.

## How the Calculator Works

The calculator multiplies the wall’s height and width to find the area in square feet. This area is then multiplied by the number of coats to get the total covered area. The total area is multiplied by the cost per square foot to estimate the base material cost. Finally, the waste percentage is added to give the final estimated cost.

## Limitations

Please note the following limitations of this calculator:

- The calculator does not account for wall features like windows or doors that may reduce the actual area to be covered.
- The cost inputs are based on average values and may not reflect your local market prices accurately.
- The waste percentage is a general estimate and may vary based on the actual work conditions.
