If you love the look of stucco, but have been debating about whether or not it’s a good investment for your home consider the following:
Stucco is extremely durable
It can withstand dramatic temperatures and harsh weather standing up to the many negative effects of snow, hail, extreme heat and gusting winds lasting decades.

More information about Stucco siding for your home:
Traditional stucco is comprised of several layers of sand, cement and lime mixture on a wire frame. Generally speaking, cracking is one of the only problems when it settles.
At Basement Bro we use new acrylic stucco systems. Acrylic is far less prone to cracking, especially in climates with more rain. With acrylic stucco systems there are multiple layers that include: polystyrene insulation, drainage channels, moisture and air barriers, fiberglass mesh as well as a base coat prior to the acrylic finish.
Maybe one of the best features of stucco is it’s versitility. It can be shaped, textured and molded to produce any effect you’re looking for in your design. It creates a seamless style and can be applied in any colour you select. It can also be painted if you change your mind.
