Read below to find out more about this amazing material and how you can get the same great look at a lower cost and fewer headaches.

Traditional Stucco Siding

Traditional stucco siding involves the process of mixing cement, sand, and lime mix with water. This mixture is then applied to homes in 1 to 3 coats. The mixture is applied to a previously prepared exterior that has been cleaned and prepared to receive and hold the stucco. This siding technique has been proven throughout Colorado for centuries and with very little modification is still popular across the state. It is considered time-intensive though and in some cases, this labor-intensive process can be cost-prohibitive for certain clients. Certain climate zones throughout Colorado also present maintenance issues when traditional stucco is used as the primary siding product.
