Stucco, a cement mixture added to sand or lime, has been a prominent siding material for hundreds of years. Its excellent versatility and relatively low cost are two qualities that attract homeowners to this type of siding. Stucco performs well in various regions, although it’s particularly recommended for homes in warm, dry climates.
Tango & Gatti, a trusted siding and roofing contractor in the area, discusses a few essential things you should know about stucco siding.
Stucco offers reliable protection to the subwall, and it’s impact-resistant. It can also be fire-resistant depending on how it is made and installed. Stucco is known for its water-shedding capability as well. It doesn’t trap water between the siding and structure, making it resistant to rot and fungus. A traditional three-coat stucco siding can even withstand an earthquake.
Stucco can be shaped and textured, enabling it to complement a wide range of architectural styles and designs. It’s quite a flexible material; you can create various features, patterns and textures with it. This versatality makes it easy to find a siding product that complements your roofing system.
3. Painting Not Necessary
Permanent pigments can be added to stucco so that you won’t have to paint it. Just be careful in selecting a tint because the color usually changes when the stucco dries. You can create a few test panels first to see what the paint will look like when it’s completely dry.
