How Long Does Stucco Siding Last?Nov 19, 2019
Stucco is a favorite siding choice because of the tremendous variation in colors and textures that can be used to create the exact appearance a homeowner has in mind for his or her house. Traditionally, stucco is a cement-based house coating that can last for decades depending on various factors, including how well it’s applied to begin with, what base material it’s applied to, and how well it’s maintained. For optimal longevity, traditional stucco typically requires repainting every seven to 10 years, as well as vigilant attention to checking for hairline cracks and applying caulk as needed.
If you’re thinking of adding stucco to your home in the Kansas City metro area, the 100 percent acrylic stucco siding available from Johnson County Siding & Window Co. is a long-lasting, low-maintenance option that outperforms the stucco siding of old. This is because the acrylic polymers used to formulate this advanced stucco coating:
- Allow the coating to “stretch” over exterior walls and resist cracking during seasonal temperature changes
- Create a siding material that’s vapor permeable, which means it allows water vapor to escape without transforming into liquid that can undermine your coating and the walls it’s meant to protect
- Are combined with advanced fade-resistant technology, which means you won’t need to repaint or replace your siding for many years
