What Are The Best Home Siding Stucco Materials?

  1. Traditional
  2. Synthetic
  3. Cement
  4. Acrylic
Traditional Stucco

Traditional Stucco

Traditional stucco, also known as classic stucco, is authentic stucco material made from cement, lime, and coarse sand. It’s a durable material that has excellent resistance to the elements. 

Traditional stucco is more cost effective than most other stucco materials and is easy to maintain by simply filling in cracks with more stucco. This type of material can be applied to either flat or curved surfaces.

Synthetic Stucco

Synthetic stucco, also known as exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS), is a polymer-based laminate. Though this type of stucco is very strong and a better insulator than traditional, it can only be applied to flat surfaces and is used more on industrial buildings than on houses.

Cement Stucco

If you are looking to cover a brick or cement surface, cement stucco may be your answer. This type of stucco can be applied directly onto these other surfaces and can create a more attractive foundation to your home that requires no maintenance and is resistant to the elements.

Acrylic Stucco

Acrylic stucco is a versatile material that has acrylic resins with sand in it to resemble traditional stucco and give the appearance of definition. It can be colored, textured, and applied to flat or curved surfaces. Designed for durability, it’s a suitable material for all weather types as it will not be damaged by moisture. Acrylic is more expensive than traditional stucco but will give you a beautiful siding finish for years to come.
