Stucco and mud covered walls have a centuries old history and if you get a new system it can have a lasting beauty.
With the rise of acrylics and the love of darker colours, a lot of stucco finishes are now acrylic. For those that want a wider range of texture options, extra strength and very minimal colour fade; cement finish stucco is for you. When applied and cured properly, cement stucco is just that, cement! Wood peckers won’t get through it(we’ve seen many get through the mesh over the foam in EIFS applications) and it’s child proof as far as damage is concerned. It won’t stop a car but it won’t blow off like siding and takes decades to fade.
