Stucco has defied misconceptions time and again, demonstrating that it can be used successfully on homes all across the United States. So when deciding on which material to use on the exterior of your home here are some reasons why stucco is the top choice over traditional siding options.

Stucco Is Timeless

Exterior stucco wall construction truly stands the test of time, as it has been used as a building material throughout architectural history. Stucco has a classic, timeless look which gives it character that cannot be achieved by vinyl siding. It is also very customizable, offering you numerous options for both colors and textures. The visually appealing finished product will set your home apart from all the others.

Stucco Is Durable

Stucco is more durable and longer-lasting than most other siding materials, especially vinyl. Comprised mainly of cement, lime, water, and sand, these natural resources are blended together in precise amounts to create a sturdy, durable exterior finish. EIFS construction cladding (Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems) adds a synthetic material to the traditional stucco process, allowing for better drainage. Stucco lasts 50-80 years on average, whereas vinyl siding lasts between 20-40 years.

Stucco Is Sustainable

Resistant to the elements, such as inclement weather and wind, stucco is a more sustainable option. Since it is easily produced and consciously broken down to ensure a small carbon footprint, it is considered to be eco-friendly. Keep in mind that it requires expert craftsmen who have been trained and certified to properly mix it and apply it to your home. This will help you avoid cracks, moisture leaks, and costly repairs down the road.
