The Advantages of Stucco

Posted by on Mar 16, 2017 in blog | Comments Off on The Advantages of Stucco

Stucco is an Exterior Finish

Although stucco has an incredibly appearance, it is generally used for the exterior of homes. Generally, contractors will advise you to use stucco solely for the outside of your home and advise you to use other finishes such as drywall with a knockdown texture or orange peel texture for the inside of your home.

The Benefits of Stucco

As one of the most popular exterior finishes for homes and businesses, there are undoubtedly a numerous amount of benefits associated with stucco.

stucco

1. Durable and Long-Lasting

When choosing an exterior finish for your home, you will want to choose a material that will withstand weathering and hot and cold temperatures. Stucco outlasts wood and vinyl, and it has even proven to be more durable than brick. Many homeowners in different climates have used stucco for decades as it resists the detriments associated with harsh winds, snow, and rain.

2. Maintenance Free

Another benefit associated with stucco is that it is virtually maintenance free. In comparison to other materials such as siding, stucco does not need to be repeatedly painted or reinstalled. This can help you to save an ample amount of money in regards to home improvements. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the upkeep of this particular finish.

3. Fire Resistant

Alongside the durability of stucco, it is also fire resistant. With that being said, there are a variety of insurance companies that will provide you with the opportunity to save money on your insurance premiums if you install stucco. Homeowners will be able to save hundreds of dollars with the installation of stucco.

4. Increase in Market Value

With the growing popularity of this finish and the classic style that it brings to the exterior of your home, you can expect to have an increase in market value when you put your home up for sale. Your profits will be quite higher than the price that you paid to have the stucco installed.

“I would rate Worldgate Plaster and Stucco a five plus! I’ve already recommended them to some neighbors and they have had work done. The guys that actually did the work along with Paul are incredibly experienced. They’ve been doing this work for years and you can tell. The job was done on schedule and it was completed early. It came in at the targeted estimated cost. The follow-up inspection was perfect, no flaws at all. My estimation based on the experience with our house is that the level of quality of work that world gate did will last 20 years minimum. It’s phenomenal.

Besides their professionalism, the crew and Paul himself are hands down the best contractors we’ve ever had work on our home, and they were very very personable. They also paid very close attention to our questions and addressed all concerns that we had. I would recommend Paul as a contractor over and above any other contractor I have worked with. I wish that he was based in Wisconsin where we are going to build our new home, because I would immediately hire him to do our exterior.

For the amount of work that was required, the price was very reasonable. You can shop around, but in the end you should hire Paul, and like I said we actually recommended his company and his crew to a number of neighbors who have taken advantage of their services. As soon as the work was done on one of the neighborhood houses, it sold immediately. It looks brand new by the time they are done with their work. These guys really know their stuff!!!”

EIFS Has Not Significantly Impacted Our Waste Stream

Posted by on Nov 2, 2016 in blog | Comments Off on EIFS Has Not Significantly Impacted Our Waste Stream

Contrary to popular belief “All the expanded polystyrene foam that is thrown away in the US every year accounts for no more than 1% of the volume of land fill garbage.” The actual amount is 0.6%. Paper actually fills 30% of the volume of our landfills and food 15%. This fact that EPS is only 0.6% perhaps needs to be tempered a bit: Many of those older buildings that have come on-line since EIFS was brought to the US in 1969, have not reached their useful end as of yet and as such have not made it to the waste stream. That’s pretty astonishing considering most of EIFS’ detractors would have you believe that EIFS is no a durable or long lasting product.

The fact of the matter is that as that issue may present itself, technology has come up with a solution for the volume of space EPS can take up in our landfills. A European company, Purex International, has developed a process called Styromelt which involves putting the discarded EPS between two temperature controlled platens (think of two irons on either side). The EPS is heated to a melting point forming a dense resin that when cooled, effectively reduces the EPS volume by 95%. This process is now being used in Europe. It is unaffected by food or other contaminants. The thermally condensed blocks can be used for myriad of products including green diesel and propane.

DIY Concrete Tombstones For Halloween

Posted by on Oct 13, 2016 in blog | Comments Off on DIY Concrete Tombstones For Halloween

With Halloween right around the corner, what would be more fun than creating your own tombstone decorations out of rapid set cement? Here is a quick tutorial:

First lets start with supplies:

  • Rapid Set Cement All
  • 11″ x 17″ baking pan
  • Dust Mask
  • Screw driver
  • WD-40 or similar
  1. Mix your cement according to the directions on the package.
  2. Spray your pan with WD-40, this will keep the cement from sticking.
  3. Pour the cement mix into the pan.
  4. Wait about 15 minutes for the cement to start to set, then using the screwdriver start carving in the words you’d like to have on your tombstone.
  5. Once the cement is completely dried, maybe overnight, slide your tombstone out of the pan.
  6. Decorate! You’re now ready to place your tombstone.

You can made several of these and create your own spooky cemetery. Happy Halloween!
