Todays homes and buildings bear a variety of exterior finishes that include brick, stone, wood and of course stucco as well. Exterior stucco often has a fine texture and is applied flat with custom mouldings, normally made with fiberglass polymers making it sturdy and flexible.
The entire outside of the building can sometimes be covered with stucco, but many times the exterior design may be construed from a combination of the above mentioned materials. Stucco applied to an external wall can act as a water barrier, and also has thermal insulation properties. It is a great choice as an exterior finish because it can cost much less than other material options, yet it is extremely hard, durable surface that resists decay and deterioration, and is therefore great for avoiding mould and rot.
EIFS: For outside projects we will use EIFS which stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish System. It involves layering of multiple materials, otherwise known as cladding, and as a final step adding a water and weather resistant barrier. EIFS is the standard for exterior stucco applications. These types of installations involve adhering insulation board to the wall, applying a base coat, followed by primers and finishers.

These applications add depth to the aesthetic, and are also useful for hiding or covering up holes and fissures. Stucco can is a common and simple fix to patch up cracked or damaged walls or in situations where there are uneven parts that need to appear to be level. With regards to aesthetic appeal, it can be tinted with a broad spectrum of colours that can be matched with specific shades within your home in order to complement the overall palette of your décor.
