A stucco is an excellent option for anyone looking for an exterior finish. It is incredibly versatile and also durable, meaning that it can withstand harsh weather conditions. Its application procedure is very similar to that of plaster; however, plaster is used for interior finishes. Stucco is specifically designed to be used on the exterior of a property. There are two different types of stucco: the traditional three-coat stucco and the more modern one-coat stucco. Both are incredibly effective and are suitable for use in different situations. One coat stucco is used more often due to it being more cost-effective and efficient to apply.

It is a popular siding choice for both residential and commercial properties. Stucco’s use provides a building with an insulated and durable covering that Smart Roofers NY can customize to the property owner’s desires. One coat stucco uses paper, wire, and foam backing covered by two exterior coats of stucco. The top layer of stucco is always needed for the finish, and because of this is not counted as a layer.

This modern stucco uses the foam backing in place of the scratch coat used in traditional three-coat stucco. This is then covered with cement that has been reinforced with fiberglass. The single coat is a blend of Portland cement, sand, fibers, and also water. Single coat stucco is applied on top of a rig Styrofoam board. This eliminates one of the cement layers that a Stucco would generally use in the traditional stucco application process. The foam board’s use reduces the costs and the time needed to apply layers of the stucco.

The top coat of stucco is still added, and this coat can be customized entirely by incorporating different textures and colors into its design. This allows you to make your property unique. This method has become preferred to the original three-coat process as it is more cost-effective and time-efficient while also sharing the same benefits.
