Concerned about having a stucco exterior during a Virginia winter? Don’t be!

Stucco can fare well in winter climates if they are dry but cold climates. The shifts in temperature will cause the stucco to swell and shrink, but not more so than other materials like wood and metal. As long as the stucco is not penetrated by moisture, the shrinking and expansion will not cause damage and the stucco will not be harmed by the cold weather. Stucco also fares well in cold and windy climates when there is not too much moisture.
