BENEFITS OF STUCCO:
When it comes to your home, the less work you have to do the better, right? You can use this time to focus on other parts of the home like the yard or interior. One huge perk to stucco is that it does not need to be repainted or re-installation. This means that you won’t need to worry about the upkeep of the finish. Also when it comes to home improvement costs and expenses, stucco is perfectly a cost-saver compared to other materials like sidings.
Stucco is not only a cost-saver compared to to her materials like sidings, it is also energy efficient. Stucco finishing can actually save you money from your monthly energy bills. The stucco acts like a thermal insulator that maintains the desired temperature for your home or business. It is ideally best during summer where it can reduce your cooling bills by acting as a double-layered insulator.
Weather Resistant and Longer Lasting
Florida experiences some crazy weather, from rains to wind, and of course hurricanes. It is important for your building material to be durable enough. Luckily stucco is one of the most durable siding alternatives available when it comes to exterior finishes. It is able to withstand different weather conditions of both hot and cold temperatures. When it is applied correctly it can last for over 50 years as it is able to contract, and resist temperature changes from snow, rains, and winds.
Fire-Proof / Decay-Resistant
So we already mentioned that stucco is durable against weather conditions and is long lasting, but what else can it do? Well stucco is also fire-resistant. Just by adding it to any surface, whether it be brick, wood or any other material, a one-inch layer of stucco could effectively add a one-hour fire rating to a wall.
Stucco is also resistant to mold and mildew. Over time, it won’t crumble or flake and is highly suitable to different types of climates. This is an important factor when living in a hot and humid environment like Florida.
Hurricane season is fast approaching. In the United States, hurricane season runs from June to November. As we near this crazy season it is important to have your home ready for what is to come. Give CDP Stucco today to improve your home and add protection against the natural disasters.
