Is It Too Late in the Year for Stucco Projects?

Perhaps you may be surprised to learn that stucco can be applied all year round, especially on the Lower Mainland in the Vancouver area. So, to answer the question in the title of this blog article, “no” it is definitely not too late in the year for stucco projects.

As you probably know, stucco is a cement-based construction material often applied to building exteriors along with some other layers for insulation. Stucco is an exterior-finishing system rather than just the cement-based component.

There are many different recipes for the stucco, itself, but it is important that the temperature remains above freezing in order for the water inside the cement to cure properly. Stucco professionals would plan ahead when installing stucco systems during cooler weather and anticipate how to protect the stucco while it cures. 

Depending on which type of stucco your stucco professional uses, he or she will have special cold weather techniques, including the special handling of acrylic—if it is included in the stucco.

Don’t worry about the application of stucco during cooler weather; this is something stucco professionals do all the time. And no matter what time of year you install a stucco system, you will be happy that you did so because stucco is great at insulation and will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
