While you can’t really list the service life of stucco in a specific number of years, properly applied and maintained stucco, is as more durable than other commonly used cladding material. Its hard surface resists abrasion, and stucco can take a lot of physical abuse. It stands up to all sorts of climates, from cold to hot and wet to dry. To give you an idea, stucco has been with us since the early Roman times, and some of those buildings are still around. Here in the US, many homes built with stucco in the mid to late 1800s and early 1900s have had very little maintenance and remain in good shape today. At Nurse Stucco we offer a 25 year warranty on our new stucco and restucco work.
