Traditional stucco is a term used to refer to siding that is made of cement, limestone powder, sand and water. Together, these ingredients create a beautiful material that can bring life to all types of buildings. Generally, stucco application follows a three-step process. The first step involves creating adhesion to the building. The second step is when we create an even surface. Lastly, the final coat is when the finishing layer is added.
Traditional stucco has many applications and can be used for the exteriors of a building to provide fire resistance and insulation.
As mentioned above, traditional stucco offers ease of maintenance. With regular cleaning with water and simple detergent, you can keep your stucco walls looking well maintained. It generally lasts for 50 and 80 years, after which you can sandblast the older stucco and reapply a new layer.
The Difference Between Traditional Stucco and EIFS
While traditional stucco is made of natural ingredients, EIFS (External Insulation and Finishing Systems) stucco uses synthetic elements, including polystyrene foam boards, fibreglass mesh and other materials to improve qualities such as fire-resistance.
Traditional stucco essentially creates a layer of cement around your property, which provides immense durability. EIFS stucco, on the other hand, creates several layers of synthetic materials.
One big difference between the two is that EIFS stucco is softer than traditional stucco. Another difference is that while conventional stucco will let some moisture move into your property, EIFS stucco will not.
The high degree of versatility offered by traditional stucco also sets it apart from EIFS stucco. EIFS doesn't allow for a lot of customization.
