USING STUCCO IN ARKANSAS
The exterior part of your house is made up of many layers that work together. The siding or cladding, which make up the outer layer is the most visible layer aesthetically and also the part that is your home or businesss’ first line of defense against the elements. Much care needs to go into the selection of your finish material and there are many choices today, each with pros and cons. One such material that has stood the test of time is stucco; it’s durable, beautiful and very good at withstanding whatever nature can throw its way.
Stucco weathers very well in the Arkansas climate and can be a beautiful option for your finish material. Stucco exteriors also add flexibility to your projects as it is possible to create curvilinear shapes where other materials like brick and stone can not. Another unique attribute is that the final finish coat can be tinted to achieve a variety of colors and pliable enough to make smooth, textured or highly decorative walls.

TRADITIONAL STUCCO BENEFITS
A lot of the benefits of traditional concrete stucco come in wetter climates where rain occurs frequently. The Arkansas climate is one that although not considered tropical, we can get substantial rain totals for longer periods of time. It is preferred to use traditional stucco in these climates because it is less likely to absorb water, be damaged by that absorbed water and is therefore superior to a synthetic stucco siding. Traditional stucco is alo heavier than synthetic stucco making it a preference to hold up better to dings, hail, and even woodpeckers. Although EIFS is overall more energy efficient due to its layers of additional insulation, it is only by a small margin. Whichever you choose you can rest assured that they will be fire resistant, a great barrier to noise and the elements, and both are available in a variety of textures and colors.
A common misconception about stucco is that it is more expensive. In all actuality, EIFS is slightly more expensive due to additional material and installation costs, even though the difference in cost is minimal. Benefits of each system are best weighed, for instance if you live by a golf course, traditional stucco will serve you better. You can’t go wrong with either choice and we are here to be your stucco contractor Fort Smith or wherever you hang your hat.
