Highland Park - Stucco / EIFSRequest a Free Estimate
If you’ve been considering changing the appearance of your home, you may be interested in choosing stucco instead of simply repainting. Stucco is a commonly used, visually appealing method of applying finishing plaster to the exterior or homes and other buildings. At Castino Painting and Home Services, we are proud to offer Highland Park and other North Shore communities home improvement services including stucco and EIFS services.
Stucco has been used for centuries, but has grown rapidly in popularity over the past two decades. Millions of homes now have a stucco finish, and for good reason—not only is stucco easy to install and attractive, it’s also energy efficient and long-lasting. Stucco can be applied to create a contemporary finish, or to create the look of masonry or stone.
EIFS, or an exterior insulation and finish system, is similar to stucco, but is better at handling moisture and provides additional installation. It is also a popular finishing system for homes. It was first used in Europe after World War II to repair damaged stone, concrete, and brick structures. It is also visually appealing, which lends to its popularity.
Both materials are durable—stucco can last up to 50 years before it needs to be replaced, and both stand up to harsh weather. Depending on the climate and desired texture, different types of cement will be used in the stucco mix.
At Castino Painting and Home services, we’ve offered stucco and EIFS services for Highland Park residents as well as homeowners all across Chicago and the North Shore, and we’ll work with you to ensure you’re 100% satisfied with the work we do.
