Traditional stucco is made from mixing sand, lime, water and cement. A galvanized-metal screening and a waterproof barrier paper are applied over wood walls before stucco is added to provide a strong base for the stucco and protect the walls underneath. Stucco is very rigid, careful installation can help reduce the possibility of unwanted cracks.

Fiber-Cement Siding

Fiber-cement siding consists of rough sand and cement, the addition of fiber is mixed in to improve durability. It resembles wood while lasting much longer than traditional wood siding. Fiber-cement siding is reminiscent of characteristic exterior of residential siding; this look is great for commercial businesses that want to show themselves as personal and comfortable.

Exterior Insulation Finishing System-EIFS

Exterior insulation finishing systems combine insulation and finishing coats to provide a synthetic stucco look to commercial exterior design. This method adds additional insulation to the building, while improving energy efficiency. The exterior finish of EIFS is rough to the touch and can accommodate more options to the client.

Mortarless brick veneer exteriors offer a clean and professional look. These exteriors are durable and are designed to withstand small impacts and weather damage better than other brick materials.

Synthetic Stone or Brick

Synthetic stone or brick facades are strong and it won’t break nearly as easy as real stonework material. Synthetics are also waterproof and flame resistant. It provides a comfortable stone look without the maintenance issues.

Vinyl Siding

Made from PVC, vinyl siding has been around since the early 1960s, however, with progressions in the technology of manufacturing, it’s new design and engineering have produced vinyl siding that can mimic the look of many types of cladding and architectural accents, including slate, stone, and wood. In addition, vinyl siding has improved on its weather resistance and strength while delivering a wide selection colors.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement contains wood fibers mixed with cement and sand. The siding is much denser than vinyl and has a better ability to withstand severe weather such as wind or hail. The material is very firm and does not contract or expand at the same rate that wood and vinyl siding do. This allows paint to last longer on its surface while providing less maintenance than wood siding.
