Despite having been used for centuries, stucco has only recently been growing in popularity. Over the past 20 years, more and more homeowners have chosen to install stucco on their homes. Stucco is a method of applying finishing plaster to the exterior of buildings. It has a modern, contemporary look, and there are several benefits to choosing stucco—it is easy to install, it is visually appealing, and it has energy efficient qualities. It is also a durable material and is long-lasting, making it ideal for exterior surfaces.
Another option for home exteriors that is gaining popularity is EIFS—an exterior insulation and finishing system. It is also known as synthetic stucco. It’s been used for decades, first employed after World War II in Europe to repair damaged concrete, stone, and brick structures. Like stucco, it is a durable exterior material that is visually appealing and easy to install.
Generally, though stucco and EIFS are similar, synthetic stucco is softer and sounds hollow when tapped while traditional stucco is harder and brittle and sounds solid when tapped on. Which material you choose will depend on your personal preferences and other factors.
