Stucco-lation™: A Special Stucco Siding Process from Superior Products Colorado


Stucco-lation™ is a stucco siding process offered by Superior Products Colorado that encapsulates a home (seals it from leaks), and applies a special stucco process that provides a beautiful new exterior finish to a home and can save up to 35% of your energy costs. (A Superior Products Stucco-lation™ stucco siding project was a “Green Remodel” winner for energy conservation from Sustainable Design Magazine.)

What Are the Benefits of Stucco-lation™ Stucco Siding?

Superior Products’ unique Stucco-lation™ stucco siding process offers many benefits to homeowners, including:

  • Dramatically Improved Energy Efficiency: Stucco-lation™ improves the energy efficiency of a home by up to 35%!
  • Save Money: Saving up to 35% on your heating and cooling costs has an immediate and long-term positive effect on your bottom line.
  • Facelift For Aging Homes: Stucco-lation™ stucco siding gives the home a fresh, new look with a durable stucco finish.
  • Eco-friendly: This process encapsulates homes with asbestos or lead painting siding, without disturbing those toxic substances and releasing them into the air or soil.

Highlights of energy efficiency results (as derived from “before” and “after” thermal scanning are as follows):

1)  Thermal bridging in wall studs was reduced significantly.
2)  Thermal bridging in corners was nearly eliminated.
3)  The walls were consistent in their heat patterns meaning there was little room for improvement in the average.
4)  Air leakage was reduced significantly.  While we do not estimate in actual air flow (pascals), any movement will leave traces which are seen in this high-definition imaging system.
5)  Exterior thermal bridging was reduced significantly.


How The Stucco-lation Process Works

STEP 1:  An encapsulating sealer is sprayed on that will cure to a strength of 6,500 PSI.

STEP 2:  Tuff-R insulation was glued, rather than nailed, to the existing asbestos siding, to prevent further asbestos from leaking into the environment. To eliminate further disturbance of the asbestos, no nails, screws, or staples were used to attach the Tuff-R insulation to the home.

STEP 3:  Once the Tuff R insulation was attached, new insulated molding was attached with heavy duty construction adhesive around existing windows and doors to avoid disturbing the deteriorating asbestos siding.

STEP 4:  After the Tuff-R insulation was applied to the exterior, a spray-on primer was applied to the surface of the insulation.

STEP 5:   Then, two coats of a durable, yet pliable acrylic stucco was applied.  When cured, this stucco remains pliable and will not crack with freeze-thaw cycles, rapid temperature swings, UV rays, or reasonable impact. The final coatings were allowed to “cure” before painting.

STEP 6:  Once the home was tightly sealed, Superior Products installed a heat recovery ventilator to bring outdoor air into the home to address any potential indoor air quality issues, due to the energy efficient sealing of the home.

STEP 7: Now for the aesthetics!  A palette of pale tan and light terra cotta complement the burnt red doors on the newly completed project.  The final result of the project was a pliable, durable stucco finish that sealed the drafty home for maximum energy efficiency.  Once the house was finished, a beautiful new porch made with composite decking was installed with a pergola built to help shade the western sun.
