Stucco

​Stucco consists mainly of portland cement, sand and water and is similar to concrete. Prehistoric stucco was performed on dwellings 4,000 years ago such as the pyramids of Egypt and structures in Central and South America. Application traditionally consists of one, two or three coats - scratch coat (first), brown coat (second) and finish coat (third or final) or brown and finish in a two-coat application.  Stucco loves water and will continue to harden for 40 years. It is environmentally safe and clean and allows for air infiltration, keeping your home fresh and comfortable. Stucco will outlast the life of your home, as is also a barrier to termites and woodpeckers. Stucco does not burn, thus giving you increased fire protection. Additionally, it can be easily repaired and provides a solid hard wall that offers security and protects against the weather. 

Synthetic EIFS

EIFS is an exterior wall system that is sometimes confused with stucco systems. EIFS is not a member of the concrete or stucco family. The only similarity between an EIFS system and a Stucco system is that the two systems may look the same when completed. EIFS systems consist mainly of a foam board covered with a special finish. EIFS is normally found on large commercial projects like the Universal Studios Orlando. Your home has a stucco system installed as discussed above and does not have an EIFS system installed.
There are now 6 layers to EIFS:
  • An optional Water-Resistive Barrier that is generally fluid applied and covers the substrate.
  • Adhesive to attach insulation board to the supporting structure (in some cases mechanical fasteners may be used).
  • Foam insulation board that's secured to the exterior wall surface substrate, most often with adhesive.
  • Base Coat, an acrylic or polymer based cement material that's applied to the top of the insulation, then reinforced with glass fiber reinforcement mesh.
  • Reinforcement Mesh, that is embedded in the base coat material.
  • Finish, a textured finish coat that is decorative and protective.

Plastering

Plastering is a process of obtaining smooth surface on the rough surfaces of walls, roofs, columns andceilings etc. for long lasting purposes and to meet its estimated design life period. Also plastering makethe rough surfaces smooth thereby make it good looking and attractive. Also it helps in preventing damp proofing. ​
Depending on what kind of plaster you have you will have one of two different binders, lime or gypsum. 

Lime – Prior to the early 1900s, lime was the primary binder in any plaster. Up until this time it was cheaper to acquire than the expensive gypsum plasters. Lime plaster is a rather laborious process of mixing water and lime and waiting for the lime to “slake” before it can be added to the sand for application. Lime also needed the addition of fibers like horsehair to help strengthen the wall. Lime plaster also takes an extremely long time to fully cure, sometimes taking as long as a year before walls could be painted or wallpapered.
Gypsum – You’ve probably heard of Plaster of Paris? Well, that is gypsum plaster. It got the nickname because in the 1700s Paris was built on top of some of the largest natural gypsum deposits in the world at the time. Most gypsum plaster came from Paris and so the name stuck. Unlike lime plaster, gypsum cures fast (only a few days) and sets even faster which is why we make casts for broken limbs with the stuff. It typically didn’t  require horsehair to strengthen it either like line plasters do.
