Stucco and EIFS, despite having been around for several decades, have been rapidly growing in popularity as home finishes. In the past twenty years, however, they have become much more common. At Castino Painting and Home Services, we are proud to provide 60076 and 60077-based Skokie homeowners, as well as residents across Chicagoland and the North Shore, with professional stucco and EIFS services.
Stucco is a commonly used method of applying finishing plaster to the outside of buildings. It has been used for centuries, but has seen increased demand over the past several years. Nowadays, millions of homeowners choose it thanks to its contemporary look and classic styling, ease of application, visual appeal, and energy efficiency. While once thought to look dated, new techniques have revived this process of finishing a home, as it can be applied to mimic the look of masonry or stone. At Castino Painting and Home Services, we are happy to offer reliable, high quality stucco services.
Similar to stucco, EIFS is another method of finishing a home. Also referred to as synthetic stucco, EIFS (exterior insulation and finish system) was originally used after World War II to repair damaged stone, concrete, and brick structures. It’s a durable, long-lasting material, but it is different from traditional stucco. Traditional stucco sounds solid when you tap it and is hard and brittle, while EIFS is somewhat softer and sounds hollow when you tap it. Both are excellent choices for home and building exteriors; however, climate and other atmospheric factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which material to use.
