Stucco, which is also known as Portland Cement Plaster, is a substance which is added to the surface of the exterior or interior of buildings. It is a tough, long lasting material which is resistant to rot and fungus, and it is also affordable and doesn’t require a great deal of maintenance. This has made it prized in the construction business and GreenTree Construction uses it extensively in our many renovation projects. It is comprised of water and sand which is combined with other ingredients to produce a type of plaster.
Why You Need Stuccoing
Stucco is one of the most cost effective materials used in the construction business today. When this benefit is combined with its durability and strength, this means it can be used in diverse climates. It is also versatile and compatible with masonry, concrete, brick, wood and even steel frames. It is also resistant to fire, which gives peace of mind to homeowners whose houses were constructed with it.
One of the best features of stucco from a design perspective is its color retentive properties. This means that multiple pigments can be used to provide stucco with an effect which is pleasing to the eye and suitable to your stylistic tastes. It can appear in many different textures and colors.
Get Inspired for Stuccoing
Many homeowners make the mistake of thinking that stucco is like paint and can be applied with the same ease. While applying stucco may seem straightforward to the untrained eye, at GreenTree Construction, we understand that improper application of this substance can cause a variety of issues such as bulging, cracking or separating, none of which are desirable. Once moisture gets in and reaches the timber frames rot will result. Stuccoing should never be performed by someone who is untrained and should instead be left in the hands of an expert.
We will apply the stucco correctly and in accordance with the standards which have been established by regulatory institutions. When stucco is applied in the proper manner it will last for years and will be worth the time and cost that was invested into it. Don’t sell yourself short by trying to embark on a DIY project you don’t fully understand just to save a buck. Correcting stucco which has been improperly applied can be much more expensive than simply hiring an expert in the first place.
