Choosing a Stucco Exterior for Your Home
Stucco siding is a type of masonry plaster consisting of many materials, but primarily Portland cement, water, and sand. It’s applied in a number of coats to provide a durable, solid, and seamless exterior for your home. This type of siding is one of the oldest natural types of siding around – as many of the ingredients are easily found in nature.
Stucco is appealing for many reasons, one of which is its fire resistance. A 1-inch coating provides a 1-hour fire rating, which means it will prevent the spread of fire from one side of the wall to the other for at least an hour.
Generally, people purchase stucco for looks. You can achieve soft shades to dark tones, just by adding dyes into the mix. Historically, stucco was often paired with flat roofs and clay tiling but with its increase in popularity, you can find stucco paired with any type of roof.
A Classic, Timeless Look
Despite the investment it costs to place stucco on your home’s exterior, it will pay for itself eventually due to its low maintenance plan and longevity. Depending on the climate and upkeep, stucco can last over 50 years.
You’ll find a lot of control over the color of the finished product as it can be mixed and produce the exact color you want unlike predetermined color palettes from other siding manufactures.
