Why High-End Homes in Toronto Choose Stucco

When you think of stucco, you most likely imagine older crumbling buildings in developing countries, and certainly not of the high-end homes you see throughout the Toronto region. Despite these preconceived notions, stucco is making a comeback in the 2017 Canadian housing market, due to it’s reliability and durability as an exterior coating. More and more homeowners are choosing to coat their high-end homes with stucco over conventional materials such as wood, stone and vinyl planks due to it’s versatility, durability, easy maintenance and stylistic capacity.

Other Benefits of Stucco

Easy maintenance: If you’re looking for an exterior that requires minimal maintenance, stucco is a perfect choice. There is no repeated painting, cleaning, reinstallation, replacement or re-sealing that goes into maintaining a stucco exterior. Instead, simply spray away dirt with a garden hose or power washer as needed. In the Toronto area, this is perfect as you will not need to regularly clear away the dust and grime that accumulates in the city. The only maintenance required is what you’d do in any winter; clearing away snow from your home’s walls.

Excellent value: Applying stucco is relatively inexpensive and saves you on the necessity of constant repairs to your home’s exterior. For this reason, it adds value to curb appeal and saves you money in the long run.

Easy installation: Unlike most other exterior coverings, stucco takes about 2 days to install fully, drying time included. It can be applied over existing materials, meaning you will not need to strip away your home’s current exterior for the upgrade. It can be applied over wood, concrete, and masonry, and stripped away when required.

Superior durability: Stucco is one of the most durable materials used to coat home exteriors. It can handle everything nature throws at it: extreme temperature swings, freezing rains, ice and snow, forceful winds and more. Even torrential rains and flooding are unlikely to damage it. Because of this, stucco is an excellent choice for Canadian climates, as it is unlikely to be damaged by sudden changes in temperatures like wood or vinyl might be. It’s resistant to warping, cracking, flaking and peeling. Because it won’t rot and mould and is easy to clean, it’s a superior choice over conventional home exteriors. When looking for a means of decoration that is durable as well as beautiful, stucco is your number-one choice
