Stucco over Styrofoam


Exterior Project
Aside from architectural mouldings... what type of styrofoam is used for this application?

Stucco over Styrofoam


The strongest and most stable foam is extruded polystrene.

If you are dealing with synthetic stucco and possible code/liability problems look to an experienced, insured stucco pro. If traditional, multi-coat stucco go ahead and use the traditional methods.
