Why to Replace EIFS with Traditional Stucco
Traditional stucco is a better exterior solution than EIFS. Unlike synthetic stucco, a correctly installed hard coat stucco system experiences far less issues. Also, hard coat stucco creates a strong yet breathable barrier. This allows moisture to escape through the porous exterior.
Because EIFS traps moisture, there’s a higher risk of mold and other damage when water penetrates the system. Traditional stucco allows moisture to flow out of the system which prevents the unwanted water damage unless something happens to compromise the system, like holes or major cracks.
At CDP STUCCO, we almost always recommend traditional stucco instead of synthetic stucco. In our experience, property owners find more long-term satisfaction with fewer maintenance issues with hard coat stucco.
The Benefits of Traditional or Hard Coat Stucco
Traditional stucco provides both beauty and durability for residential and commercial properties. In fact, many Northwest Florida property owners select stucco because it holds up well to the Northwest Florida weather.
In addition, hard coat stucco offers versatile design options. Whether you need an updated look to your store front or want a luxurious feel for your custom home, stucco comes in a variety of colors and textures to meet your needs.
