Stucco a Top Recommended Finish

Posted By My Guy || 1-Nov-2011

Stucco is an amazing exterior and interior finish and has been used in construction for centuries for good reason. Stucco comes in a variety of finishes, textures and colors. Installed properly by the right people, it is a cost effective and durable finish that should last, with proper maintenance, for the life of your home. Does your stucco need repairs or do you just want to give your home a new look?

Older homes may already be finished in Stucco but often homeowners choose to "update" the look of their home by having a more "current" texture installed over the existing texture. Perhaps your home is an older style, block or wood sided home. Updating with a stucco finish can add value and a new, more current look.

Colored and synthetic stucco finishes can eliminate the need to:

  • repaint your home as the color is built into the finish
  • save you valuable time and money searching for and hiring another contractor to paint your home

In these tough economic times, more and more people are choosing to stay in their current home, maximizing it to the fullest by updating and sprucing it up. It just makes good economic sense. Repair and maintenance of existing stucco is often overlooked but is extremely vital to ensuring your stucco finish endures.

Stucco, being a cement product, will develop:

  • "hairline" cracks
  • holes in the finish occurring from external sources

Both of these should be repaired in a timely manner and in a proper fashion to save expensive repair costs down the road.

Repair of stucco and the "blending" of textures into the surrounding finish is an art and should be done correctly by professionals the first time, saving you the expense and hassle of a return trip to fix an unsightly "bad repair".
