Why Stucco Increases Your Home’s Resale Value

Yes, stucco can increase your home’s resale value. And why is that? It is because stucco does some things that other types of exterior cladding do not. In today’s blog article we are going to talk about the distinct advantages of stucco and why it is good for property resale value.

Fire Protection

Stucco is fire retardant. This is a major safety advantage. While cedar cladding will burn like crazy, stucco will delay both the ignition and spread of fire.

Service Life

It may be hard to believe, but stucco can last from 50 to 80 years. Cedar siding lasts about 20 years, and vinyl siding may last 30 years. Stucco is a valuable exterior cladding because potential buyers know how durable it is.


It is easy to repair stucco if it needs it—which it does not need very often. And if your stucco is tended to regularly, then it can last a really long time.


Stucco offers better insulative qualities than other types of siding. Because stucco is a dense material, it protects against water, noise, and it can even lower your heating/cooling bills.


Stucco is a great choice for design because of its versatility. Stucco can be almost any color, and there is a big variety in finishes. You can achieve whatever you want in your design scheme with the use of stucco. Your stucco finish can be completely customized.

Remember, stucco has been used for thousands of years. There are good reasons for that. Stucco is an excellent, durable choice for exterior building cladding.
