Frequently asked questions

Can The Stucco Color Be Changed ?


Absolutely. However, it is best to avoid painting over your stucco, as the stucco is supposed to breathe. Paint may trap moisture inside, which will be bad for the performance and durability of the product. Instead, a change of color is best accomplished by adding new stucco over the current finish. This way, you will maintain the characteristics of the material while attaining the new look you desire.




Can Stucco Be Added to a Painted Surface?


It is best to have the existing paint removed before stucco is applied. Stucco will struggle to adhere to a painted surface, meaning the finished product will not be as secure and durable as it should be. Sandblasting is commonly used to remove paint from a surface which is marked for sandblasting.




Should There Be Cracks In My Stucco?


In a word – yes. Cracking in stucco is perfectly normal, and it is actually a sign that the stucco has set properly. When the water in the stucco evaporates after installation, the produce will shrink and some small cracks may appear. These cracks, as long as they are relatively small, are not a problem and should be expected.




How Hard Is It To Re-stucco My Home?


Adding a new layer of stucco is not a particularly difficult process, but it does need to be completed by an experienced team of professionals. The existing stucco on your home will likely need to be sandblasted in order to remove the surface. Repairs to the current stucco can be made at this time, if necessary, before the new stucco is applied.




Why Would I Pick Stucco?


There are a number of reasons why stucco makes a great choice for the exterior of your home. First, as mentioned earlier, is the appearance of this material. This is a great looking product to use as siding on your home, and it is available in a wide range of colors. Also, the pricing of stucco is modest, as it is nowhere near the most expensive siding choice on the market. Finally, there are few maintenance requirements for stucco as the years go by. Once you have invested in your stucco finish, you can plan on getting a great return on that investment for many years to come.




Can an EIF system be adhesively attached over treated plywood?


It is recommended that EIFS applied over treated wood products be attached using mechanical fasteners. Because of variations in the chemical compositions of the treatments used on plywood, questions exist regarding long-term performance.




Why does the foam need to be picture framed around penetrations?


Stresses in exterior walls will concentrate at openings and other re-entrant corners because of framing and sheathing discontinuities. By ensuring that the EPS insulation is continuous, we help distribute those stresses over a wider surface area and provide a more effective buffer to minimize the chances of stresses being transferred to the coatings.




Is a water-resistive barrier required prior to installing an EIFS system in residential construction?


We encourages the use of water-resistive barriers over moisture sensitive substrates to provide additional protection in the event of a component failure. Local building codes will stipulate whether this is a requirement or not. Additionally, specific systems may require a water-resistive barrier as part of the warranty requirements. The project specification should note whether one should be installed.




In using the EIFS system, is the need for vapor barrier eliminated?


No. Although EIFS will minimize internal wall condensation by reducing the air infiltration as well as increasing the internal wall temperature (for heating climates) climates that normally would use vapor retarders should still use them with EIFS claddings. When requested, We can perform a Water Vapor Transmission Analysis for specific walls to evaluate the tendency for condensation to occur.




What type of water-resistive barrier is best for EIFS?


The most important consideration is to be consistent with the recommendations for the specific EIFS system being used to ensure compatibility. Generally, liquid applied barriers (Backstop® NT) is more effective because it completely eliminates air infiltration by avoiding laps. Also, it permits adhesive application of EIFS thereby providing improved wind resistance and ease of installation
