Quoins are architectural elements present in high end homes and have been around for so many years, indicating that the builder or architect put in more resources, planning, and fore-thought into making the home unique. They originated in stone castles and resources where the corner blocks need to be large to support weight for additional stories and roofs which got transferred to them. This needed particular instruction from builders to architects to start from corners to stagger ends and build from there. It needed engineers to calculate load on these corners. Basically, it is not done in the stage of planning, then it was not carried out at all.

However, modern technology, which uses stucco and EIFS, permits average home owners to add a touch to the home minus getting involved in stages of design in the building, expertise of the architect or the expense of tearing the wall down. Styrofoam stucco gets covered in polymer modified cement and mesh to ensure durability and come in so many options that suit the personality and style of the homeowner. They do not provide or require support from the structure, and get adhered to the surface with approved cladding like EIFS, Stucco, Brick, and Concrete.

How do you decide on the style of stucco and EIFS you want? Below are fun ways of determining what will suit you.


Beveled vs Squared Edge

Individuals that prefer simplicity and tidiness may choose to go for the squared one with ninety degree edges available at South Florida Contracting Services. Beveled EIFS may attract people that are more laid back and enjoy soft looks that offer gradual transition.


Spaced or Joined

It is only the beveled stucco that can be put on top of the other minus spacing because the square edged ones will butt the flush against each other, but might get spaced apart. The spacing amount may as less as two inches but the most common one is fifty percent of the total height. Joined stucco and EIFS may appeal to people that prefer a sturdy look, while spaced ones indicate the personality of those ones that feel they do not have to hide anything.

Rectangular sides or Square Sides

Stucco may be made to showcase squares on either side, or shorter on either side. The siding that is unevenly sided has to undergo staggering for the desired effect. Homeowners that want something more time-honoring will have to get attracted to classical rectangular EIFS, while individuals looking for asymmetrical and modern things may enjoy squares more.

On many occasions, stucco refers Portland cement but refers to EIFS or synthetic stucco. In full, EIFS means Exterior Insulation and Finish System.

Renovating with or building a home with stucco and EIFS will reduce your costs of heating significantly. The first method is through the reduction of air infiltrating into the wall, and the other one is reducing heat that gets transferred via the walls by adding more insulation to the exteriors.

Stucco and EIFS from South Florida Contracting Services solves this issue by the use of continuous, trowel-applied weather barrier on the sheathing. The exterior or plywood drywall is fully covered, including the joints, sealing the walls from possible infiltration of air. The utilized material is the one that adheres to material surrounding it while curing, creating a monolithic, and single air barrier.

This barrier serves as the surface for allowing moisture and water to run the wall off, making sure it does not come into contact with studs and sheathing to form mold and rot.

Heat gets transferred though the walls constantly; whether it is heat leaving the home in winter or hot air getting in in summer. Materials like insulation transfers heat in a less effective manner as compared to other materials like metal or wood, and is valued for its ability to separate the interior from exterior climate. The issue with traditional insulation is that it is effective where it is available.

This is to mean that if walls are eighty percent stucco and EIFS and twenty percent framing, then you will get eighty percent of the total value of insulation. Also, EIFS uses traditional methods of construction from water by covering one hundred percent of the surface of the wall with insulation, by adhering to the building’s exteriors. The insulation gets protected by a cement coating, a mesh, or a beautiful acrylic finish coat from Stucco and EIFS.
