The Perks Of Stucco Siding

When it comes to siding options for your home, there are many options to choose from. Stucco continues to be one of the most popular options when it comes to siding for your home exterior. Stucco is best described as a cement mixture consisting of lime, sand, and water. Many reasons behind its popularity will be explored below. 

Stucco Is Fire And Pest Resistant

If you’re worried about your home catching on fire during extreme heat or pests seeking shelter in your home from the elements, stucco is a great natural repellant against fire and pests. Even a single coating of stucco can provide a significant amount of fire protection. Because stucco is applied in layers and doesn’t crack like most siding material, pests have a much harder time finding ways to get into your home via the siding. 

Stucco Is Durable 

The fact that stucco is applied in a series of layers also contributes to its high durability. Stucco siding can last for over fifty years as long as it’s properly maintained and cared for. It’s also more water-resistant than most types of siding as long as it’s treated to prevent mold and mildew. It also absorbs the impact of earthquakes, adding to its already high scorecard for durability. 

Stucco Is Soundproof

If you value peace and quiet, stucco can provide natural soundproofing to your home. That’s because any openings in the stucco are sealed upon installation, keeping any sound from traveling through. If you live on a busy street or are not far from a highway, then stucco siding is the perfect antidote to noise pollution. 

Stucco Is Stylistically Versatile 

Stucco can work with a wide range of styles. It can go with traditional and modern homes. Stucco can be painted, but it doesn’t need to be painted as it doesn’t require finishing or painting. Whether you favor a mid-century modern style or prefer an exterior design reminiscent of a Spanish colonial style, stucco can work for nearly any kind of exterior design.

The Drawbacks Of Stucco Siding

For all its perks, there are some things about stucco to be mindful of if you choose it for your house’s siding. Here are some of the challenges to keep in mind when it comes to the stucco siding. 

Stucco Is Expensive 

Unfortunately, stucco isn’t the most financially accessible siding material for your home. While the overall cost of installing stucco for your home siding depends on the size, most stucco costs eight dollars per square foot, making it more expensive than most siding options. If you’re determined to stick with stucco, make a thorough budget plan first. 

Stucco Can Be Challenging To Maintain 

Another factor to keep in mind when considering stucco is the respective maintenance requirements. Ensure that you’re ready and able to commit to a regular maintenance schedule for your stucco siding. In fact, experts suggest power washing stucco siding twice or thrice a year. 

Stucco Needs Professional Installation 

Stucco may not be for you if you’re keen on a DIY siding installation project. In fact, stucco is probably the last material you want to use for such an endeavor. For this reason, your best bet is to hire a professional to install your home’s stucco siding. By seeking out a professional, you’ll be able to enjoy the final results of his project without putting yourself in harm’s way.
