The Benefits of Stucco for Condo & Strata Properties

by Bill Caros April 1st, 2014 in Condo Stucco

Owning a condo or strata property means having some communal responsibilities. One of these responsibilities will be to contribute to the upkeep of the exterior walls of the buildings. Getting together with the other owners to make sure your condominium looks good on the outside is pretty normal, but choosing the right material is always going to be a bit of a battle. Very few people want to let others make the choice for them, so it’ll probably take some convincing before you get the rest of the board to agree on stucco. But stucco offers many benefits which everyone in the condo will appreciate.

Easy, Cheap Maintenance

Stucco is one of the easiest exterior materials to maintain. You rarely have to do any maintenance at all, and when you do it can be inexpensive and quick to make things look like new again.


Stucco will last for years and years, meaning that you won’t have to constantly update or upgrade your exterior walls with fresh coats of paint.

Flexibility and Options

Of course, if you want to give your building a fresh look with a new color, it’s easy and inexpensive to paint stucco. Stucco can be applied in a wide range of textures and colors, allowing you to create a unique look for your building.

Additional Insulation

You may find that you can cut down on heating and cooling costs when you add a layer of stucco to the outside of the building. Everyone benefits when you increase insulation, and there’s no way a coat of paint can enhance insulation like stucco can.

Stucco is attractive, inexpensive, and won’t cost you money in the long run. But you can easily update it if you’re ready for something new. Stucco is the perfect choice for an exterior finish on condominium and strata properties.
