Stucco is a commonly used method of applying finishing plaster to exteriors of homes and commercial buildings. Stucco has been used for centuries, but over the past 20 years has rapidly grown in popularity, and now, millions of homes have a stucco finish. There are several benefits to using stucco, including ease of installation, visual appeal, and energy efficient features. In addition, stucco can be applied to provide a contemporary finish or used to create the look of masonry or stone.
An exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is synthetic stucco that has been used since just after World War II in Europe. Originally used by contractors to repair damaged stone, concrete and brick structures, it is thought to be a durable material. When applied over wood, drainage mats are also installed to release moisture and eliminate problems associated with moisture damage.
Generally, synthetic stucco is softer and has a hollow sound when you tap it. Traditional stucco sounds solid when you tap it and the stucco is hard and brittle.
