Stucco is a type of cement that is used to plaster walls. Though it originated in Europe and South and Central America, it is now seen in most of the USA as well. Although it didn’t originate here, there are clearly reasons that stucco is popular. It looks great and is resilient - which means that it is good for both indoor and outdoor situations. On top of all this, it is elegant and can last up to 50 years! If you want to know more about our stucco services, contact us for more information, and one of our dedicated staff here at Contractors Brooklyn Pros will get back to you as soon as possible with more details.
What is stucco
Stucco is a material that can be used to plaster the indoor and the outdoor walls of your house. It is durable and can be applied in most weathers. It is a form of cement that expands and contracts with the weather, making it less likely to crack. Because it can last so long, it is a very good investment in your house or commercial property. Stucco is a good insulator, and is especially good at deflecting sunlight, but it can also keep heat in.
What are the benefits of stucco
Stucco is great because it is resilient. It can manage most bumps without causing a dent or needing repairing. It is also resilient to the heat, cold and water, unlike some other cement, which means that it can be applied on the inside and on the outside of a building no matter what the temperature or weather is. Whilst some materials might need to be changed every few years, stucco can last up to 50 years. This is mainly because it expands and contracts with the weather, which decreases the chances of cracks forming due to pressure.
One of the massive benefits of stucco is that it doesn’t need very much maintenance. However, stucco is a porous material, and can collect dust and dirt. This isn’t usually a problem, but only requires a cloth or rag to clean away. When cleaning, you should look for cracks and signs of water damage, such as brown stains or a damp smell. If this happens, call or message us as we can help. Usually if this happens, all that is needed is another layer of stucco in one area.
