When it comes to building your home there is a wide range of materials you can use. The climate, and your budget, can play a huge factor in what you choose. However with all the options available it can still be hard to choose which option is best. So it is important to take note of the your personal taste, and as mentioned before, the weather in your area as well as your budget. If you are living in Florida then should keep in mind that when it comes to the exterior finish, stucco is one of the most commonly used materials in Florida.

We have provided you with some information to help you make your choice. Here are the advantages to stucco:


  • Installation can be done quickly. You won’t have to wait weeks for the process to be complete as it only takes a few days to complete.
  • Maintenance is easy. Stucco is a very durable material that requires very little maintenance. You won’t need to spend much time keeping it in tip top shape. When compared to other materials, stucco does not require repeated cleaning or replacement. Stucco can be painted once it is dry, and you can repaint it whenever you like.
  • Durability. As we mentioned before stucco is a very durable material.When it is properly installed and maintained, stucco finish can last for a long time. It is a suitable material for changing weather conditions like we get in Florida. It can also be layered onto solid masonry. Stucco is also fire retardant and, with proper waterproofing, can resist rot, mold, and mildew.
  • Reduces sound transmission. If you live in an area where this is a lot of loud noises that cannot be avoided then you might be in some luck. Stucco can actually help to minimize noises like a congested neighborhood or near a highway. Even if you don’t live in a super loud area, this noise control can add an extra layer of peace to your home and life.
  • Aesthetic appeal. Stucco is very versatile. It can offer you a wide range of creative design options. Stucco allows you to experiment with different paint colors, patterns, and textures. With stucco, you can create a classic and elegant style that can improve the curb appeal of your home. Now don’t get too crazy or you might have a hard time selling the home in the future!
