Solamente Experience

Solamente Natural Plaster was founded in 2006 by Kent and Sally Gurley, seasoned professionals (well beyond salt and pepper!) with extensive backgrounds in green products, construction, design, and color. Kent and Sally have long had a passion for transforming interior spaces and natural plasters have proven to be a perfect vehicle for expressing their passion. Solamente has applied over 1 million square feet of clay and lime plasters!

Solamente has developed unique solutions for troubled areas and goes the extra mile to be sure your walls are finished properly and consistently. Solamente uses American Clay Earth Plasters as basic products, then diligently researches the “best practices” to create the most beautiful and durable walls possible. Solamente is now combining clay plasters with lime to enhance their beauty and durability. Solamente cares about your home or office as though it was their own - when the job is done, clean up is completed and the trash is taken away. Projects are completed on time and as proposedS

Enjarre is the coarsest American Clay Plaster. The finish is a more flat look with more subtle variations than Loma. Solamente’s Enjarre is burnished to be smooth to the touch and free of sand.

ClayStone is Solamente’s version of lime-washed clay plaster. Two coats of Loma plaster followed by two coats of lime wash applied and burnished creating a lustrous, highly differentiated look. The lime wash makes the surface quite hard and moisture resistant.

Solamente Finishes

ClayCrete is a finish perfected by Solamente. It incorporates lime into a blended clay plaster and yields a beautiful, smooth, durable finish. The lime addition a harder finish that has a natural luster and resistance to moisture.

Loma is the classic clay plaster developed by American Clay. At Solamente the loma finish has a warm suede-like appearance accented by subtle variations that occur with the burnishing at the end of the process. The finish is smooth to the touch and free of any loose sand.

Porcelina is the finest plaster American Clay makes. Solamente produces beautiful, smooth walls with Porcelina. The burnishing brings out more variation than Loma and produces areas of light and dark of chosen color.

Lime finishes by Solamente range from smooth to ultra smooth and are the hardest of the options. There is a range of looks similar to the clay plaster finishes, and natural lime plaster shares many of the same attributes as clay.

Our massive home renovation project involved an “army” of contractors, tradespeople, and specialist vendors. Few of them delivered or executed to our complete satisfaction. Solamente Natural Plaster was a standout exception. Always on time, always taking care to explain every detail of the process, and producing a result that exceeded our optimistic expectations - we were total fans from the day our homes finished. But the service did not stop there. Their friendly “after installation” support is equally wonderful. Even if they did not have the spectacular product, we would want to do business with Solamente
