What Is Traditional Stucco?

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.

Best Practices

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.

The Benefits of Traditional Stucco

Traditional stucco has been a popular choice for clients for a long time, and with good reason. Our traditional stucco in Calgary comes with countless benefits such as:

  • Low cost: Compared to other types of siding materials, traditional stucco is affordable for property owners without any decline in quality.
  • Resistant: Traditional stucco is resistant to fire and will not easily allow water to enter your property.
  • Easy to maintain: All you must do to keep your traditional stucco clean and maintained is to hose it down with water.
  • Durable: Traditional stucco is highly durable and is resistant to extreme weather conditions such as snow and rain, making it an excellent choice for Calgary's properties.
  • Versatile: You can apply traditional stucco to both wood and concrete, and it gives you immense control over the final look.
