Stand Out from the Crowd

Many owners list their vacation rental properties on well-known websites. The abundance of inventory creates stiff competition as renters can choose from a massive variety of homes. Vacationers often consider location as a top priority. If you have that in the bag, great! If not, it’s even more important to emphasize the property’s aesthetic appeal. Fortunately, homes really catch people’s eye when you add a stucco finish to the exterior. 

There is virtually no limit to the variety of colors you can choose from when you add a stucco finish. The pigment mixes right in with the product, which gives flexibility in color schemes. Equally important, stucco allows you to incorporate different textures, too. The combination of color and texture really makes the home stand out from all the others. Talk about curb appeal – or online appeal!

Reduce Maintenance Time and Costs

Some property owners use property management companies to deal with guests, and to manage and maintain the property. Others choose to do it themselves. Either way, savvy investors try to limit the time spent on maintenance and repairs. After all, no one wants to spend money on repairs that could go into their pocket instead. The good news is that the stucco exterior requires very little maintenance. Every once in a while, you may want to have a stucco inspection to ensure no issues. That being said, stucco has a good reputation as a low-maintenance material as long as a professional did the stucco installation. 

Extend the Life of Your Home’s Exterior

Did you know there are stucco structures around the world that are thousands of years old? That’s right. This amazing material, comprised largely of water and cement, provides long-lasting durability. Even better, you may be able to recoup some of the cost to install it by depreciating the investment when you file taxes. Of course, we can’t give financial advice, but we urge you to speak to a tax professional about that.

When it comes to stucco and moisture, professional application is the biggest deterrent of potential issues. In addition, EIFS cladding provides an extra layer of moisture barrier to give even more you peace of mind.
