Stucco, a cement-type mixture added to sand or lime, has been a prominent siding material for hundreds of years. Its low cost and versatility are two of the main qualities that attract homeowners. Stucco can perform well in various regions, although it’s mostly 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 sub wall along with excellent impact resistance. The way it is made and installed will determine the level of fire resistance it can provide. Stucco is known for its water-shedding capability as well. It doesn’t trap water, making it resistant to rot and fungus. A traditional three-coat stucco siding can withstand an earthquake too.
Stucco can be shaped and textured, which means it can complement a range of architectural styles and roofing materials. It’s quite a flexible material. You can create various features, patterns and textures with it.
3. Painting Not Necessary
Permanent pigments can be added to stucco so that you won’t have to paint your siding ever again. 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 a shade will look like when it’s completely dry.
