Stucco siding is amazing. You just don’t know it. But you can see it if you look at our gallery.
You’re probably used to seeing different kinds of siding on the homes in your neighborhood, you might not be familiar with the different kinds of siding available. The most popular kind of siding in Utah is probably vinyl siding, although some homes also offer stone or wood siding.
Although extremely popular in many southern areas like Florida or Texas, stucco siding is often overlooked in favor of brick or vinyl. That being said, you shouldn’t make that mistake for your own home.
Stucco siding is made by creating a mixture of Portland cement, sand, and water which is very durable and can be given a rough finish or a smooth one depending on your personal tastes. Because smearing stucco directly onto the frame of your house is usually impossible, stucco is applied over a rough wire framework so that it has something to adhere to. Once stucco dries, it is very hard and has a rock like consistency.
