All homes can face a lot of problems as they age and begin to deteriorate. Stucco can be used to clad walls on both old and new homes for a variety of reasons, but on older homes adding stucco can provide a sturdier and more energy-efficient wall-cladding better suited to a home built before these features were overly popular.
Stucco is easier to clean and more durable than other types of wall cladding. It is less likely to crack or stain, and even if it does stain it can be easily cleaned with a pressure washer and a mild detergent. You might stucco an older home after dealing with a less durable and easily soiled type of wall cladding for a lengthy period of time, desiring something lower maintenance.
Stucco has insulating properties, particularly synthetic stucco which is installed over a layer of insulating foam board. This foam board can keep warm air inside the home and cool air out, or vice-versa in the cooler months. By stuccoing an older home, homeowners can save energy--and money on their energy bills.
