Textured and Smooth Acrylic stucco is made up of acrylic resins and/or polymers, sand and crushed quartz- sand being the only shared material between acrylic and traditional stucco. Acrylic stucco actually resembles gritty paint. It’s also known as elastomeric stucco, synthetic stucco, or even exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS). Novaclad does both Textured and Smooth Acrylic Finishes.
Advantages of Stucco Finish
Stucco is very appealing for many reasons. It’s versatile, long-lasting and easy to maintain.
Here are some of the pros of choosing a stucco finish:
Fire- and pest-resistant:
Stucco can be applied over any surface, including wood and brick. A 1-inch coating of stucco can provide a one-hour firewall rating, which means it can prevent the spread of fire from one side of the wall to the other for at least one hour. With wildfires ravaging communities and homes over recent years due to arid climates, stucco is becoming a popular siding option.
When it comes to colour, texture and the type of application, no other home siding material provides the flexibility that stucco does. It can be smooth, coarse, swirled and even shaped into figures to add architectural details.
Stucco can well last over 50 years with proper maintenance. It can expand and contract with the weather to sustain critical damage, unlike other siding options. It’s also resistant to mold, rot and mildew.
Requires little maintenance:
Stucco is very easy to keep clean and well-maintained. Pressure washing the exterior once a year is enough to prevent dirt build up in the pores. Any small cracks can easily be fixed with paint or sealants to leave the finish as new.
Stucco can reduce sound transmission and provide some insulation:
Thanks to the layer application process for stucco, this creates a concrete shell around the house that provides insulation and helps keep the home cool without needing more energy. This same outer layer protection helps reduce sound transmission and keep street sound away from the house’s interior.
