Basic Things about Stucco

  • November 4, 2019

Stucco is a good building material for fine plaster for coating wall surfaces or molding into architectural decorations. As with any building system, though, failures happen. Often those failures occur when the system is improperly installed.

Because cement has so many variables, there are many opportunities for mistakes to happen. Plastering becomes more complicated if you mix or apply it incorrectly, or using ingredients that go wrong, it will crack and fall.  

That's why employ technicians who are familiar with the workings of cement and also improve performance – especially under difficult conditions, Stucco needs to resist the pressures of weather particularly extremes like freezing and thawing. These occur in areas where the soil has high sulfate content. The sulfate gets absorbed into the plaster and causes expansion, which results in cracking.

Not only must stucco prevent these problems, it also must maintain certain properties during application. Proper mixing of the materials that make up stucco, will allow stucco to meet all of these challenges.

Stucco is a composition of cement, water and sand. It's often referred to as plaster. But there are many different kinds of cement. Let's start with the cement-the main ingredient in stucco, masonry cement, and plastic cement. Cement has an air-entraining agent. This means small air bubbles will blend into the plaster, making it easier to work with and frost-resistant.
