Believe it or not stucco is actually a type of cement. We can apply it indoors and the climate in Texas is suitable for outdoor installation as well. Stucco is a low-maintenance and a fire resistant material. So if you’re looking for something to make your a flat surface a little less boring stucco could be a great option.
There are two products that bring similar results, Stucco and the lesser known EIFS. EIFS stands for exterior insulation and finish systems. It’s a coating applied onto a base of fiberglass mesh and foam-board insulation. It’s a tad bit more expensive than a traditional stucco finish but the options for decorative creativity are the reason some projects would require this product.
