How Stucco Installation Can Increase the Value of Your Home

July 8, 2020

If you’re interested in taking on an exterior home remodeling project that can also increase your home value, you should consider installing stucco. This durable siding material adds aesthetic value to your home while also protecting it from the elements, both of which are key to improving your home value.

Here are just a few examples of the ways in which working with a stucco company in Bluffton, SC can help you improve your home value:

  • Enhanced curb appeal: Curb appeal is one factor that will play a role in the value of your home. How attractive is your property when people first look at it from the street? Your home’s exterior makes the first impression on potential buyers, and a strong first impression is just as powerful in valuing a home as it is in meeting new people and building new relationships. Stucco provides a look of elegance and luxury that enhances your curb appeal and thus improves your home’s value.
  • Additional insulation: Stucco is applied in three layers: a scratch coat, a brown coat and an elastomeric colored finish coat. You can also select a synthetic variant of stucco, EIFS, which will feature at least one layer of insulation paper to create a water barrier, followed by additional layers. In either case, the extra layers on your home’s exterior will improve its insulation and prevent heat transference. This will help you save money in your energy bills, because better insulation means your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work nearly as hard to maintain your ideal interior air temperature. This will also have a positive effect on your home value.
  • Low maintenance requirements: Another way in which your home value can be enhanced by stucco is that it provides the extra curb appeal and insulation described above while having generally low maintenance requirements and lasting for years. People purchasing a new home typically don’t want to walk into a situation in which they have to perform a significant amount of extra maintenance or repairs. Stucco allows you to change the appearance of your home without having to make any significant structural changes, and the finishing color is ingrained into the stucco, meaning you don’t have to worry about repainting. You can keep an eye out for cracks, but other than that, you won’t have nearly the same maintenance requirements with stucco as you would with many other types of exterior siding materials.
  • Numerous options: There are a lot of different options with stucco that you can choose for your home. You can select from a range of colors and textures, and create many different kinds of detailed designs that allow you to customize the façade of your home and turn it into a work of art.

These are just a few examples of some of the ways stucco can benefit your home value. Our stucco company in Bluffton, SC is happy to answer any questions you have about stucco installation and would be glad to walk you through what you can expect. Reach out to Spring Construction to learn more!
