The Advantages of Installing Stucco Siding

The Advantages of Installing Stucco Siding

Spring is the best time to pursue a siding replacement because of the mild weather. If you’re not sure what siding material to choose, you might want to consider stucco, which offers excellent insulation and curb appeal.

Northern Pacific Roofing, your local roofing contractor, elaborates more on stucco siding’s advantages below:

Durability 

Stucco siding, which is made from Portland cement, sand, lime and water, is quite durable. Contractors generally offer 15-to-20-year warranties for stucco siding, but with proper care and maintenance, stucco siding can last much longer. Plus, it holds up well against strong winds and is resistant to several common siding problems, including mold, insect infestations and even fire.

You might have read that stucco siding is vulnerable to cracks in high temperatures. That may have been true for older products, but manufacturers now add polymers to the stucco mix to make it more durable.

Insulative Capabilities  

Thanks to its insulative capabilities, stucco siding is a common feature in homes in areas with warm climates. Installing energy-efficient siding can help lower the cooling costs of households in areas with warm climates.

Aesthetic Appeal and Design Flexibility 

You can choose from a wide variety of stucco finishes to give your exterior a seamless look that can complement any roofing system. Want to add a personal touch to your exterior? You can add colors or have artistic designs engraved into the cement coat before it dries.

Low Maintenance

Another advantage is that stucco siding doesn’t need a lot of upkeep to maintain its durability or its curb appeal. Manufacturers use long-lasting pigments in stucco finishes, so you only need to repaint it once every few years.

Sound Resistance

Tired of hearing noisy cars through your walls? Here’s another reason why you should install stucco siding—it can partially block outside noise. You can enjoy a more quiet and peaceful home when you opt for stucco siding.
