There are two types of stucco in use today
Traditional– This type is made from a mix of Portland cement, sand, lime, and water, but can also consist of a proprietary mix of additives which may include fibers and synthetic acrylics that add strength and flexibility. This mixture is applied in three coats over a lath base, or a piece of mesh, and many times coated with an expansive acrylic-polymer finish to help ensure it does not crack.
Benefits: This type of siding stands up better to impacts from things like hail or a baseball hit by the neighbors kid for example.
Synthetic(Exterior Insulation and Finish System or EIFS)- This type is multilayered. There is a foam insulation board on top of which a coat of the synthetic plaster is added. Then a fiberglass mesh, and lastly a top coat.
Benefits: Slightly more energy efficient than the traditional type. Because it's more flexible, EIFS allows for more imaginative designs than traditional types are capable of holding. This type will not typically fade or yellow over time.
How is it applied? The short story: Traditionally, application occurs using three coats. The scratch coat, brown coat and finish coat. The two base coats are generally applied by hand or are machine sprayed. There are a few ways to complete the finishing coat including hand texturing, troweled smooth, floated to a sand finish or sprayed. In the beginning lath material was spaced strips of wood horizontally installed on a wall. This material supported the wet plaster while it cured. Now metal wire mesh, or netting, replaces the use of wood lath. Because the wire is galvanized, it is resistant to corrosion which makes it appropriate for exterior wall applications. Generally, for exterior wall finishes, lath is installed on top of felt or paper sheet that is weather-resistant to protect the framing from moisture that may pass through.
Stucco Over Siding Colorado Springs
In some cases we can apply stucco directly on top of your siding. The siding must be in good shape for this to be a viable option. It is recommended that the siding be removed for the best possible results, but this is a more economical option if it's necessary. We are always up front with our customers and will only go forward with this option if we feel it is in the your best interest.
