Exterior stucco is one of the most elegant and durable finishes you can choose for the outside of your home. While it’s commonly associated with Spanish-style architecture, it’s versatile enough to suit modern, traditional, Mediterranean, contemporary, and Mission styles as well. You can choose from a variety of textures, and just about any color you can think of, to create the look you want. And, when you’re ready for a change, stucco is easy to restore or renovate.
Stucco is made from a mixture of cement, water, and sand. It’s traditionally installed in 3 coats, with a rough wire frame embedded in the bottom layer for stability. Once dry, it’s nearly as hard as a rock. Unlike typical vinyl or clapboard siding that comes in one texture, a skilled stucco installer like Precision Windows and Doors can create a unique finish ranging from rough to smooth, allowing you to customize your home’s exterior.

Many homeowners choose stucco siding because it’s durable and virtually maintenance-free. It resists fire and termites, reduces noise transmission, and doesn’t require painting. It makes a good insulator, and it’s suitable for use on homes with unique design features such as curves and sharp angles. Stucco siding is also impact resistant, making it a great choice for houses here in the Kansas City area that are prone to damaging hail from thunderstorms. And, all this comes at an affordable cost.
