Installation consideration & Advantages

Your home is your castle.  Its exterior is one of the first things you see, even if you are simply enjoying the sun in the backyard.  As a visitor, or potential buyer, the exterior of your house or commercial building makes the first impression.  The choice of your exterior siding is more than just first impressions. Your siding choice also affects your energy bills, the life of your residential or commercial property, its looks, resale potential and more.

Because of the application and the material, stucco is an incredible insulator of both warm and cool air. With stucco on the exterior, it is cheap and easy to maintain a constant temperature in your home, no matter what the mercury reads outdoors. Its energy efficiency is one of the main reasons stucco is such a popular siding choice in areas of extreme heat, such as the American Southwest.

And from a design standpoint, you can’t beat the appearance of a good stucco finish. The smooth, traditional, southwestern look of stucco as a siding material is hard to beat. Add to that the fact that you can add coloring to your cement coats, artistic designs carved into the cement coatings, and mosaics and murals into your stucco walls before the cement dries, and stucco can easily be transformed into one of the most creative, and innovative, siding applications on the market.

    You have many Custom Options with Stucco

    With any type of siding, you do not have very many color options. With stucco, however, specialized contractors at Marina Stucco can mix colors directly into the solution, allowing you to choose the perfect custom shade. And, while stucco doesn’t require painting over time, you can repaint it, should you ever want to.

    Stucco offers great Durability

    Stucco is one of the most durable siding choices available in the market. With the right application that
    Marina Stucco contractors excel in, stucco can last over fifty years. This is due in part to the fact that stucco expands and contracts as the temperature changes, which reduces the risk of cracking or crumbling.
