Birmingham Plaster and Stucco
Stucco is a building material that has been in use continuously for thousands of years. Surviving stucco walls constructed in ancient Egypt and Rome still retain their strength and beauty today. Your Birmingham home can become a part of this rich tradition when you hire S C Construction to complete the siding on your new construction.
Traditional stucco is a durable and weather-resistant siding that has long been valued for its use as a practical building material, but also offers a visually attractive alternative to other siding options. Available in a variety of finishes and colors, we can create a style that will express your individual taste or blend in with other homes in any Birmingham neighborhood. Some of the structural advantages are that stucco improves your home’s soundproofing, is water resistant to help protect your home from water damage, and is sturdy enough to stand up to life’s bangs and scrapes. Additionally, properly applied stucco will be nearly maintenance free for the life of your home.
We offer three basic types of stucco products for your home or business:
- Cement Mix Stucco – The most economical form of stucco siding, cement mix stucco is a durable and long-lasting product that is a great choice in most construction situations. This is the product that gives the classic stucco look. The one drawback when compared to other types of stucco siding is that as your house ages, your exterior walls will tend to develop hairline cracks caused by the house settling and temperature variations. These can add to the attractive, lived-in look of a stucco home, but will eventually require repair.
- Acrylic Finish – This product is identical to the basic Cement Mix except it is finished with a layer of acrylic. This acrylic finish is able to stretch more than basic stucco, reducing the appearance of hairline cracks. An additional benefit is that the acrylic is available in a much wider variety of colors.
- Exterior Insulating Finishing System is a deluxe stucco system that adds extra insulating value to your home, saving you on energy costs over time. It is extremely attractive and a beautiful addition to any home.
