Stucco Applications to Upgrade and Fortify Your Building
It is commonly understood/accepted that commercial property managers and condominium board members are responsible for all major decisions relating to the maintenance of their buildings and grounds, as well as efficiently managing all associated finances and budgets. This can be a sufficiently challenging task under the most ideal circumstances as it is simply hard to please all of the people all of the time.
Regrettably, what is considered ideal is often disrupted by the unexpected; in other words, reality has a way of rearing its head on a regular basis.
As a property manager or member of a condominium board/association, you are routinely faced with issues/decisions that can strain your budget but must ultimately be resolved due to their potential impact on:
- Structural integrity
- Aesthetics/curb appeal
- Occupant/visitor safety
- Cost containment efforts
As a decision maker, you can find viable solutions in the stucco work/applications offered by Canadian Stucco. Enhancements and upgrades via stucco walls and various features can be effective options for addressing the maintenance/repair needs of the building and/or the desires of its occupants/tenants while also keeping an eye on budgetary considerations.
Capitalize on the Multiple Benefits of Stucco Applications
Despite regular and adequate maintenance practices, there will come a point in time when multi-unit structures/complexes start succumbing to age. Furthermore, these buildings can also be subjected to damage at any time, whether caused by natural forces or man-made.
- Structural leaks/water penetration
- Cracks within the masonry or façade
- Staining – rust, efflorescence, mold/mildew
- Weather damage – hail, wind, temperature swings
- Smoke/fire damage (e.g.: careless use of barbecues)
All such problems must be rectified, preferably sooner rather than later, in order to prevent more widespread damage and more extensive/expensive repair or replacement work in the future. An EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) stucco application installed by one of the certified crews from Canadian Stucco, may be the best solution for the immediate issue at hand and also from a long-term perspective.
Converting the exterior building walls to EIFS stucco applications provides several benefits for commercial property managers/condo boards and the leaseholders and/or residents of such complexes.
- Improved energy efficiency/consumption rates
- Protection against water/moisture/insect penetration
- Synergism/compatibility with any/all architectural designs
- Fire protection – a resistance capacity for roughly one hour
- Superior insulating properties against external sounds/noises
- Lower maintenance costs – easy to clean; painting not required
