Stucco is widely used for its durability and aesthetic. This is due to the fact that it is a hard, water-shedding, color retentive, low-maintenance, and breathable material. Since stucco is breathable, water that gets behind it does not become trapped, making it more resistant to rot and fungus. Stucco is also fire-resistant and provides protection against termites and woodpeckers. Star Plastering provides Portland cement stucco, synthetic coatings, and EIFS.
Portland cement stucco is commonly used for the exterior of buildings. This provides an economical, hard surface that is rust, rot, and fire-resistant. It is the most durable variety of stucco and can be colored and veneered to a wide variety of textures to enhance any architectural design. This is the most popular choice when it comes to choosing stucco.
Synthetic coatings offer a flexible, textured wall coating that bridges hairline cracks and is weather-resistant. It is available in a variety of textures and can be tinted to any color.
EIFS (exterior insulation and finishing system) is a general class of non-bearing building cladding system that provides an insulated, water-resistant finished surface.
