About Stucco

Stucco EIFS is up to 84% more energy efficient than 6 other commonly used wall systems*. 

  • If you've ever felt the comfort of being wrapped in a warm blanket on a cold winter night, you have some idea of what EIFS can do for a home or building.

EIFS literally wraps the exterior in an energy-efficient thermal blanket. By insulating outside the structure, EIFS reduce air infiltration, stabilize the interior environment and reduce energy consumption. 

  • In fact, EIFS can reduce air infiltration by as much as 55% compared to standard brick or wood construction. And since walls are one of the greatest areas of heat and air conditioning loss, improvement in the wall insulation can be very meaningful in terms of energy conservation. 

  • What's more, EIFS add to the "R-value" of a home or building. (R-value is a measurement of the resistance to heat flow; the higher the R-value, the better the material's insulating value.) Most EIFS use insulation board with an R-value of R-4 to R-5.6 per inch as the innermost layer in the wall system. When combined with standard wall cavity insulation, this extra layer can boost wall insulation from R-11 to R-16 or more.

There are numerous advantages to applying stucco over just about any other exterior option:

  • Stucco is extremely durable and will outlast siding, both wood and vinyl, and even brick, by decades. It can withstand the test of extreme temperature changes and weather conditions, resisting the harsh effects of rain, snow, hail and gusting winds.
  • Stucco, unlike wood siding, never needs to be painted. It is maintenance free, worry free, for years to come.
  • Noise resistant. The mass of stucco controls noise better than other finishes.
  • Can be configured to any design requirement.
  • As well as adding beauty to your home, stucco adds thousands of dollars to the market value.
  • Stucco is mould and mildew resistance and will not rot or flake apart, so it is exceptionally durable in more moist or humid climates.
  • Easily repaired. Damage to stucco finishes can be remedied easily at negligible cost. 

The thermal efficiently of a stucco E.I.F.S. system can translate into real home energy savings of anywhere from 30% to 60 % annually.
