Request a Free Estimate

Stucco and EIFS, or synthetic stucco, have been available as home finishes for decades. In the past twenty years or so, however, they have become more and more popular. At Castino Painting and Home Services, we have provided Lake Bluff homeowners, as well as residents across Chicagoland and the North Shore, with professional stucco and EIFS services.

Stucco Exteriors

Stucco, a commonly used method of applying finishing plaster to the exteriors of homes and other structures, has been used for centuries, but has seen a spike in demand in recent years.  Nowadays, millions of homes and commercial buildings have stucco exteriors, and it’s not surprising to see why—stucco has many benefits, including its ease of installation, visual appeal, and energy efficiency. Additionally, while once thought to be dated-looking, current stucco designs can be applied to provide a contemporary finish or to create the look of masonry or stone. At Castino Painting and Home Services, we are proud to offer homeowners in the 60044 zip code high quality and professional stucco services.

EIFS Exteriors

EIFS is another method of finishing a home. Originally used in World War II to repair damaged stone, concrete, and brick structures, EIFS, or exterior insulation and finish system, is a form of synthetic stucco. It is a durable material, but is somewhat different from traditional stucco.

For instance, traditional stucco sounds solid when you tap it and is hard and brittle, whereas EIFS is softer and sounds hollow when you tap it. Still, both are excellent choices for home exteriors.  If you want to learn more about stucco or EIFS, feel free to view our online gallery.
