What Is Stucco?

Stucco is a versatile and durable material used for both exterior and interior finishes. Composed of cement, sand, lime, and water, it has been trusted for centuries due to its longevity and aesthetic appeal. Stucco can be applied over various surfaces, including masonry, concrete, and wood frame structures, making it a flexible option for many building projects. Its application typically involves three coats: a scratch coat, a brown coat, and a finish coat, which can be customized with various textures and colors. Stucco’s benefits include excellent weather resistance, energy efficiency, and low maintenance, contributing to its enduring popularity in construction.

benefits of Stucco

Stucco is not only a durable and versatile material but also offers numerous advantages for your property. Its unique composition and application make it an excellent choice for both aesthetic and functional purposes. Here are some of the key benefits of choosing stucco for your construction or renovation projects:

  • Durability: Stucco withstands harsh weather conditions and lasts for decades with minimal maintenance.

  • Energy Efficiency: Provides excellent insulation, helping to regulate indoor temperatures.

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Available in various textures and colors, enhancing the architectural beauty of any building.

  • Easy Maintenance: Simple to clean and maintain with very low annual maintenance cost compared to other siding materials, making it a practical choice for property owners.

Stucco On Masonry Siding

Masonry siding is an excellent substrate for stucco application due to its stability, durability, and compatibility with stucco materials. The solid and stable nature of masonry provides a strong foundation that supports the layers of stucco, ensuring a long-lasting and resilient finish with less risk for the stucco to crack. Additionally, masonry’s porous surface allows for excellent adhesion, creating a cohesive bond between the stucco and the siding. This combination enhances weather resistance, improves insulation, and offers a seamless, aesthetically pleasing exterior that can be customized with various textures and colors. Choosing masonry siding for stucco application ensures a robust and visually appealing result.

Stucco Application Process

At AO Handy Inc., we follow a meticulous stucco application process to ensure a durable and beautiful finish for your property:

Step 1: Preparation

We clean and prepare the surface, removing any debris and applying a bonding agent if necessary.

Step 2: Scratch Coat

Our team applies the first layer, known as the scratch coat, over a lath base and scores it for better adhesion.

Step 3: Brown Coat

We then apply the brown coat to level the surface and provide additional strength.

Step 4: Curing

The brown coat is allowed to cure for several days, ensuring a solid foundation.

Step 5: Finish Coat

Finally, we apply the finish coat, customizing it with your choice of textures and colors.

Step 6: Final Touches

We perform touch-ups and clean the surrounding area to leave your property looking pristine.

We contracted A. O. Handy to restore the foundation of our 150 year old home. The fieldstone foundation needed interior tuckpointing -- and a lot more. We could not be more pleased with their work. They are outstanding.

I hired A O Handy for a chimney rebuild. Denis was in contact before, during, and after the project which was great especially when an issue arose regarding the old chimney. As for the project itself, everything was completed very timely, the crew cleaned up each day and were careful with personal items in the yard.

The crew at A.O. Handy Inc. did a great job tuckpointing our 8000 sq ft commercial building. They paid attention to detail and completed the work on schedule. Very easy to work with and brought attention to areas that I was not aware of and stayed on budget.
