Stucco helps to keep your house cool in the summer for the same reasons it helps to keep your house warm in the winter: stucco insulates. One coating of stucco by itself is not a great insulator, even though it is better than many other exterior finishes like brick.
A chimney cap serves several purposes which we will outline for you here, and all of them are important. In basic terms, the chimney cap keeps some things out of your chimney and some things in your chimney. The benefit of having a custom chimney cap is that all of the chimney cap’s roles are performed better with a custom chimney cap because the cap will fit perfectly. If your chimney cap does not fit exactly, then the cap will not be performing its job the way it is supposed to.
Stucco is a thick coating that is made of sand, water, and cement. It is a finish that later can be painted any colour you want. Many use it as an exterior finish on a building because of its many advantages.
