About Us

Advanced Stucco Office

“Personally, I love the logistical nightmares, never-been-done before, one-off challenging projects.”

Joe Brooks, founder and President

Joe Brooks thrives on creating other people’s visions, even when those visions seem impossible. 

Brooks started working for a friend’s dad in the construction business when he was in his 20’s and decided pretty quickly that he wanted to own his own company. He started Advanced Stucco in 1995 with two employees. Today, Advanced Stucco is an industry leader and one of the largest stucco providers in the United States.

With massive projects like the Guitar Hotel at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the billion-dollar renovation of the Broward County Convention Center complete, developers and general contractors trust Advanced Stucco to be able to handle these complex commercial projects.  

Advanced Stucco is known for being on the forefront of technology and products in this industry. We have the latest tools when it comes to modeling, estimating and application. 

“We are the first to learn about new products and we are not afraid to try them. It allows us to take on detailed projects and deliver quality and excellence every time,” says Brooks. 

Advanced Stucco is also an award-winning company, named one of the Top 50 Contractors by Walls and Ceilings Magazine and honored with numerous Craftsmanship Awards by the Construction Association of South Florida (CASF) and Community Appearance Awards by cities like Fort Lauderdale. We are a member of CASF, Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter (ABC), and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). We are also a certified installer for Dupont and EIFS-licensed throughout the state of Florida and the Caribbean.

Our Team

Advanced Stucco - Joe Brooks

Joe Brooks

Founder, President and CEO

Joe Brooks is the heart and soul of Advanced Stucco. The South Florida native founded the company in 1995 with 2 employees. Since then, he has grown Advanced Stucco into one of the largest and most successful stucco contracting companies in the US. 

He is a visionary and loves the creative side of taking a concrete block high-rise and making it beautiful. He also understands the risk of this industry.

“There are no guarantees or recurring revenue streams in this business. Every year, you start at zero and have to work hard to build your backlog of future projects,” says Joe. 

Joe credits God, his family, great employees, solid relationships, phenomenal mentors, hard work, hard lessons and endless resolve for his success. 

“After 26 years, I still love coming to work each day. I love when the phone rings and having no idea what project is waiting on the other end of the line,” says Joe.
