Let’s say you are constructing a new house or redoing an existing one. What would you pick between durability and elegance? Durability seems like a straightforward choice. But there’s a way you won’t have to choose anymore.
Professionally installed stucco siding and stone siding from Hynes Roofing & Siding does well on both fronts, durability and elegance.
So which siding material should you choose for your home? Read on to find out.
Exteriors: An introduction
When it comes to deciding what you want your exteriors to be made up of, brick, stone, stucco, fiber cement, and vinyl are some popular options available. The brick exterior will cost you the least among these, but the performance of other siding variants is far superior.
For instance, the vinyl siding will vastly reduce the maintenance costs and increase the overall appeal of your home. Fiber cement siding offers durability and resistance to rot and moisture.
While the installation of stone exteriors is slightly more time consuming and labor intensive, they too provide durability and good insulation against heat. Stucco siding does one better, as it not only provides durability but is also easier to install than the stone exterior.
Differences between stucco and stone exterior
If you plan to wrap your house with either a stone or stucco siding, or a combination of the two, it is important to understand the features of both these variants.
When it comes to stone exterior, it is economical in comparison to stucco and has a variety of colours and designs that are unique to this variant.
Natural stone exteriors are both elegant and durable. Adding various stones like granite and limestone will increase the life of your home and add to the overall the visual appeal.
The stone veneer is made from natural and synthetic materials, making it a lighter and less expensive alternative to using natural stones. The stone exterior, if not sealed properly, can cause water and moisture to enter the house, causing problems like rot and mould.
A few other features of the stone exterior are as follows:
- Durable and weather resistant
- Stone colours/variety add to the aesthetic
- Low maintenance costs
- Resistant to fire
- Labour intensive installation
Stucco siding provides a formidable protection against weather and a superior finish in terms of looks. Stucco exteriors, when professionally installed, can last long and incur lower maintenance costs.
Other features of the stucco exterior are as follows:
- Elegant look
- Long term solution
- Resistant to fire
- Lower maintenance costs
- Lower temperatures
- Easy installation
Stucco siding installed by Hynes Roofing & Siding adds elegance to your house and provides the walls durability to withstand the forces of nature.
Stucco remediation with Hynes Roofing & Siding
Stucco provides strength and beauty to a home’s exterior. However, faulty installation or any damage to the stucco can reduce the life of the stucco siding. Regular maintenance or remediation of the stucco siding will significantly increase life and save future costs.
The stucco remediation cost will be a fraction of the cost of dismantling and re-installing a new stucco siding.
We follow a 4 step process for stucco remediation
- Inspection – Inspecting helps identify damage, if any
- Recovering – Remove the damaged stucco off
- Addressing – Address the damage that lies underneath
- Re-wrapping – Your house is now re-wrapped with stucco
