Stucco Work

Popular for decades, stucco is perfect for Texas homes of any style, whether of modern design or more traditional. Stucco gives your home a durable, decorative exterior that is easily enhanced with a wide selection of trim, shutters and other architectural elements. But these are not the only reasons Plano, Texas homeowners are opting for stucco siding.

Advantages of Choosing Stucco Siding for Your Texas Home

Low Maintenance – Unlike other exterior siding materials that have to be painted often, or replaced, stucco doesn’t require a lot of upkeep. To keep your stucco exterior looking great, use a fan type sprayer with a mild detergent. In the majority of cases, this is all that is needed to remove any dirt build up.

Sound Barrier – Because stucco is applied in layers, it creates a minor sound barrier that will reduce neighborhood noise.

Fire Resistant – Unlike many exterior siding choices, stucco is not susceptible to fire. This can also mean better rates in your homeowner’s insurance – yet another benefit of stucco!

Quick Installation – You can have new look for your home in just a few days, despite the need to apply stucco in several coats. Because of its versatility, stucco can be applied to either wood framing or concrete masonry, making it perfect for any Texas home type.

Extra Insulation – Composed of lime, cement, and silica, stucco provides extra insulation, thus lowering energy costs.

Cost – At $3 to $5 less per square foot than brick, stucco is a more affordable option for your home’s exterior.

Additional Uses of Stucco

Walls – Stucco is not only for exterior siding, but is also used for interior walls or for creating decorative landscaping elements such as low fences.

Mailboxes – Tired of the mailbox stand getting knocked down or blown over? A stucco base for your mailbox not only adds durability, but provides a decorative element that can be designed to complement your home.
