Picking the right siding option for your home can be a difficult task because there are so many possible options. It helps if you narrow down your list, so you should stick to one or two possible options. And what better way to start your list than to consider stucco siding?
What Is Stucco Siding?
Stucco siding is made of a mix of Portland cement, sand, lime and water. Usually applied in multiple coatings, this type of siding provides a seamless, often textured appearance to your home. Stucco siding can be painted over or have the mixture pre-mixed with certain pigments.
Stucco for Better Fire Resistance
Since stucco doesn’t have any components that can burn, having this type of siding can improve your home’s resistance to fire. On the other hand, wood and vinyl siding can catch fire when exposed to open flames long enough. Siding repair for partially burnt stucco siding is also a matter of cleaning the soot and reapplying a coat to repair heat cracks.
Better Energy Efficiency
Stucco siding is a great option for homeowners looking for an energy-efficient option. The material itself has high thermal resistance, and there are no seams where heat or warm air can seep through. This improves your home’s overall insulation, allowing you to save on energy costs in the long run.
Aside from being easy to color, stucco siding can be applied with a specific texture. Whether you want it smooth for a minimalist look or a rough texture for something more dynamic, it’s easy to match Stucco with both modern and classic home designs.
