On the search for new siding? Choose stucco.
There are many siding options on the market today. Vinyl tends to be popular for its affordability, while other homeowners prefer composite or even wood siding. One option that’s become increasingly popular is stucco siding, and for good reason. It gives homes a smooth, traditional look but offers benefits and efficiency that hold up to the cutting edge options. At Johnson County Siding & Windows Co., we’re proud to offer acrylic stucco made with 100% acrylic. But why should you choose stucco for your home? Here are a few of our favorite reasons.
Stucco siding stands apart from other siding options in that it provides a smooth surface. It can provide a classic, traditional look, but it can also work with more of a modern twist. Stucco siding boosts your curb appeal for a few reasons. One main reason is the color, which is incredibly UV resistant and won’t fade in the same way color from other siding materials might. Another reason the look of stucco is hard to beat is that it resists cracking extremely well. Acrylic polymers allow it to stretch without cracking and it’s able to breathe naturally without losing any of its shape or quality.
Stucco siding is a great choice for Kansas City, but it’s particularly popular in the Southwest, where the hot weather tends to reign supreme for most of the year. The reason? Its tough energy performance. Stucco siding is durable and allows very little air leakage, which means that in summer hot air stays out, and in winter hot air stays in. If it works in areas like Arizona and Texas, it can certainly hold up to Kansas City summers…and winters, for that matter.
Live in a noisy part of town and need a little more privacy for your home? Woken up too early each morning by the sounds of traffic or just a particularly chipper bird? These are just a couple more problems stucco siding can help. The hardy insulation of stucco siding that makes it so energy efficient also slows sound transmission, soundproofing your home. No matter what’s going on outside, you can enjoy peace and quiet in your home with stucco siding.
The smooth surface of stucco and long-lasting color means that it practically takes care of itself. You won’t have to worry about frequent repairs or cleaning. This is not just a perk for homeowners who aren’t particularly home improvement savvy, but it will save you hundreds of dollars that might be spent in the upkeep of other forms of siding like vinyl. It can last for over 50 years in decent condition before it needs to be replaced.
With the right installation team, your siding installation can always be done efficiently and comfortably, but stucco siding does make it that much easier. It’s applied in coats, which makes it a less noisy installation, and it typically takes only 1-2 days to complete. Again, the right installation team will ensure that the job is done right the first time so you shouldn’t need any assistance with your siding for some time.
