Stucco Cladding For Exterior Walls
Stucco cladding received immense popularity in the US in 20th century. It is typically seen more in the Spanish architecture and mission style architecture as well. It is one of the most elegant of all the different types of house cladding. Stucco cladding is a mixture of cement, sand and lime that is placed on the exterior walls of houses and buildings. Stucco is an exterior cladding that is durable, weather-resistant and attractive. It is a heavy substance that holds up well in wet weather because it is porous and can absorb moisture, and it will dry easily without damage. Pigments can be added to the stucco cladding to create a wide variety of colors, and it will never need to be painted. This cladding comes in a variety of textures and gels greatly with every type of exterior paint.
It is a fact that stucco cladding is arguably the best of them all, when it comes to durability and efficiency. There is one limitation to this statement though and that is the proper knowledge about repairing a stucco. As a matter of fact, this cladding is a bit brittle, and hence, there are always chances of the material to get small holes and patches on the surface of the cladding. These patches and holes are needed to be examined and cured on time so that the cladding is not needed to be ‘re-installed’ and that can save the unwanted and additional cost.
