The Perfect Solution for your Residential or Commercial Building
Stucco exterior wall finishes have been one of the most popular choices for Albuquerque home and business for quite some time — and for good reason! Whether you are looking to purchase a new property or renovate an existing one, here are some of the reasons why you should make stucco a deciding factor.
When applied correctly, stucco is a tough, fire-resistant material that will not fade or peel. It is impervious to rot, mildew, and termites, and can weather hot and cold temperatures with ease. It outlasts wood and vinyl, and is even more durable than brick! Stucco repairs are quick and easy, but with proper maintenance, stucco will last nearly a lifetime. The simple act of washing with water once every 6 months will keep the surface clean and the colors bright.
Virtually Maintenance Free
The 1/8” finish coat of traditional El Rey Stucco covers a minimum 1/2” to 3/4” cement stucco base. These multiple layers provide a tough, integrated shield for your home’s exterior walls. The color through finish does not need to be repented after years of exposure to sun. Wind or cold compared to ongoing maintenance required of other non-current based exterior stucco finishes, as a dense current product, stucco resists noise from nearby streets and is a fire-resistant barrier for homes in the foothills providing up to a one-hour fire rating for your home’s security.
Stucco is composed of lime, sand, and water, all three of which are naturally fire retardant. Because of this, stucco is non-combustible and provides up to a one-hour fire rating for your home’s security. Also, stucco can actually help prevent a fire inside the home or business from spreading to neighboring buildings.
When paired with the weather-resistant barrier installed on all buildings, stucco cladding holds up extremely well, no matter what the weather does. It resists snow, rain, and heat, is good for climates with freeze-and-thaw cycles, and is impermeable to rot and mildew.
- Quick installation
- Reduces sound transmission
- Insulates the building, so less energy is needed for heating/cooling
- Can be installed on both concrete and wood frame buildings
Portland cement stucco is a mixture of sand, Portland cement, lime, and water. Not only is cement stucco hard, impact resistant, and fire resistant, but it sheds water easily by allowing any moisture that penetrates the surface to run down the weather-resistive barrier and collect in a weep screed, which then drains from the wall. Cement stucco is also extremely breathable and vapor permeable, so any moisture that does not drain escapes from the system as it turns into vapor.
Cement stucco is also color retentive, adding iron oxide pigments directly to the mixture to achieve its color. These inorganic minerals give the colors their rich and natural look. Since the stucco is integrally colored, it will never need to be painted.
Benefits of Cement Stucco:
- Great long-term investment
- Durable and long lasting
- Low maintenance
- Creates a tough, integrated shield for your home’s exterior walls
- Resistant to earthquake damage
Synthetic stucco is an integrated composite material used to clad the exterior walls of buildings that provides an insulated finished surface and waterproofing. It is typically attached to the outside face of exterior stucco walls with an adhesive (cementations or acrylic based) or mechanical fasteners. Adhesives are commonly used to attach EIFS to gypsum board, cement board, or concrete substrates. EIFS is attached with mechanical fasteners (specially designed for this application) when installed over sheet-good weather barriers such as are commonly used over wood sheathings. The supporting wall surface should be continuous (not “open framing”) and flat.
Benefits of Synthetic Stucco:
- Flexible and very durable
- A better insulator than traditional stucco siding
- Flexible, allowing for ornate keystones, cornerstones, and other accents that traditional stucco previously could not hold
- Does not yellow or fade

Nothing ages a building’s appearance like cracked, stained, or peeling stucco. Stucco often deteriorates when water leaks in around non-vertical areas such as parapet caps, the roof, around windows and doors, or through the walls. Visible signs include cracks and delamination of the stucco surface. Our stucco contractors will diagnose the cause of your stucco damage and fully restore the surface to its former glory using professional stucco repair techniques.

No matter how challenging the stucco repair, the stucco contractors at Lujan & Sons Construction have the right products to handle the job. We are proud to use Sto products for all of our stucco repairs, because their products have been field-tested for reliability and quality. In fact, Sto has led the industry in exterior wall system and coatings for more than 40 years!
Parapets and Other Non-Vertical Areas
When it comes to stucco, many problems occur around non-vertical areas, such as parapet caps, or decorative shapes, because there is a tendency for water to collect and cause serious deterioration over time. Sto Flexyl is a flexible waterproofing membrane that creates a watertight seal. It is coated with Sto Primer, and then the same coating or finish used for the rest of the building.
