Frequently Asked Questions
Check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for quick information about our services.
Q: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF STUCCO?
Stucco siding is a siding material made of Portland cement, sand, lime, and water. It’spplied in three coats over a lath base and it provides a solid, durable, and seamless home exterior. Some advantages of stucco include a natural resistance to fire, lasting durability, and low maintenance when properly installed.
Q: HOW LONG DOES STUCCO LAST ON A BUILDING?
While the service life of stucco can’t be quantified as a specific number of years, properly applied and maintained Portland cement plaster, or stucco, is as durable as any commonly used cladding material. Its hard surface resists abrasion and can take a lot of physical abuse. It stands up to all sorts of climates, from extreme shifts in season and both dry and humid climates. Many homes built in the early 1900s have had very little maintenance and remain in good shape today.
Q: WHAT IS EIFS SIDING?
EIFS stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems. EIFS is a relatively new product which uses plasticizers to modify traditional cement stucco and make it more flexible. This allows application in a thinner coating which saves time and material. The system also includes an insulation layer that improves system and building performance. The entire modern EIFS system consists of a moisture barrier (usually), the foam insulation, the plastic-cement basecoat, fiberglass reinforcing mesh, and finishes.
Q: CAN YOU SEE EIFS REPAIRS?
When professionally done, repairs to EIFS should be hard to notice. However, if colors are not matched exactly to the new finish coat color, which will be more fresh and shiny repairs can be seen. However, over time, as the wall ages, the patch blends in and becomes much less visible.
Q: WHAT IS MASONRY?
Its construction was achieved using units of various artificial or natural mineral products. The structure is built by binding them using mortar. The term masonry can be applied to the craft itself. It’s combined into almost all structures that are generally a highly durable form of construction.
Q: WHICH IS MORE DURABLE BRICK OR STUCCO?
Brick has a higher resale value than stucco. The attraction of low maintenance, high fire resistance, and durability gives brick an edge over stucco for home buyers.
Q: CAN YOU PAINT STUCCO?
Yes, but do not recommend it and when done, should be left to the professionals. Most paints do not work well on stucco. Paint is developed and made for woods and metals- not cement. We use an acrylic, coating product that is made specifically for cement.
Q: CAN YOU PAINT STUCCO?
Yes. Cultured stone products are suitable for both, and allow you to bring the outdoors inside, emphasizing design and continuity in color and texture.
Q: HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
We have been in business for over 35 years, our company was incorporated 1985.
Q: WHAT IS THIN BRICK USED FOR?
Thin brick is a lightweight masonry veneer used on the exterior walls of homes and commercial buildings to give the appearance of traditional brick at a more affordable cost and lower impact to the environment.
Q: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BRICK POINTING?
Brick Pointing will restore the brickwork back to its original condition, restoring the structural integrity of the building, protecting against dampness, while improving the appearance and increasing the value of your home.
