Features & Benefits of Stucco
Stucco provides up to 1 hour of fire resistance, a feature that sets stucco apart from other economical wall cladding finishes.
Versatility of Design
Conforms to any variety of shapes, forms, arches, and ornamental configurations.
Can be applied in an almost limitless variety of textures, finishes and colors.
Stucco performs in a variety of climatic conditions, enduring wet/dry and freeze/thaw cycles without a problem.
While other economical claddings can get severely damaged by hail, stucco is made to weather the storm.
Low Maintenance Costs
Stucco is a durable surface easily cleaned with a water hose.
It has excellent color retention, and can be refinished with a top coat of the same or different color.
Stucco is not susceptible to attack from insects, rodents, or other drilling or boring creatures.
Impact & Abuse Resistance
Stucco’s hard surface and metal lath reinforcement make it highly resistant to physical abuse.
Stucco’s monolithic nature and heavy mass reduces noise transmission much more effectively than other competing cladding choices.
The cost combined with s versatility and aesthetic design capabilities make it one of the most cost effective choices for residential and commercial wall cladding systems.
Engineered stucco cladding systems greatly enhance structural building performance and mitigate damage in a seismic event.
