Maintenance Free Makeover

The Only Limitation is Your Imagination…

What is STUCCO?

This cement-based plaster has been used on houses and buildings for centuries, and its appearance will be something that you are familiar with. Stucco, sometimes referred to as ‘render,’ is made from  lime and polymers combined to form a plaster. It is porous and adheres well to a range of surfaces, such as concrete, masonry, brick, wood frame or steel frame, making it one of the most diverse building materials out there. Not only is it practical, durable, and easy to maintain, but it also looks great – it can be applied in a variety of ways to create a range of finishes, and pigmentation can be added for colour.

Why do we recommend Stucco to our customers?

  • It is incredibly durable. When applied correctly by professionals like ourselves, stucco is rot-resistant, and provides an excellent seal against the rain and snow (as it is seamless). Depending on the climate, stucco on a home can last up to 100 years with little or no maintenance. 
  • The maintenance required is minimal. When having siding installed, the last thing you want is knowing that you have years of intensive care ahead. However, with Stucco, you can be reassured that this will not be the case, and instead, the finish on stucco homes can have a long lasting affect with little or no maintenance. It does not need to be painted repeatedly, reinstalled, replaced, or regularly cleaned, unlike many similar alternatives.
  • Installing Stucco is likely to add value to your home. This is because there are many well-known benefits of Stucco: energy-efficient, fire-resistant, sound dampening; it adds significant curb appeal. So, not only is this form of siding beneficial for you and your house now, but it is also a long-term investment. 
  • The installation is quick. Stucco is quick-drying, meaning that our time working on-site is significantly reduced compared to other methods. 
  • A variety of textures, including smooth, and colours can be achieved. Our experts can create numerous finishes based on your wishes. Whatever your taste, talk to our team, and we will create the perfect aesthetic for you.

Kevin did a fantastic job transforming our kitchen, by micro cementing over black glossy tiles. I was really impressed with the finish and several months later the end result still looks like new. I got him back to spray paint a dressing table. Kevin is very jovial, considerate and tidy. He comes highly recommended.

Kevin came to assist us with removing a broken integrated dishwasher that had been built in to the point that replacing it was incredibly difficult (local retailer had tried twice a failed!) due to the custom kitchen setup.After exploring a few options, it needed some cutting out but Kevin's methodical approach, meant that we've ended up not only with the unit removed but also a way around creating the same problem when we put the new one in...and can easily reinstate the woodwork so it looks like new again.After what was a genuinely stressful (dinner guests on christmas day with no dishwasher!!!) situation, we now have a solution that means we can get a replacement fitted in the next few days....and we're delighted!What I have to say is that Kevin reached out to me after posting a question on local social media and was incredibly helpful to do so....we were at our wits end and Kevin's solved it for us. A genuinely nice guy who got us out of a mess!Would definitely recommend him!

Kevin was fantastic. He was very professional and amenable. Our old kitchen is completely transformed. There were no corners cut and it was kept tidy and safe throughout the process . We couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Kevin gave our fitted wardrobes and bedroom units a makeover last week and we are delighted with the results. Kevin was really friendly, really tidy and gave great advice when we were struggling with the exact shade of white, he gave us a recommendation, we love it and the finish is fantastic. We also asked him to paint a feature walk for us whilst he was here and he was more than accommodating and it looks perfect. Would highly recommend and will use in future. Thanks Kevin and sorry about all the annoying pets!

I needed a few small plastering jobs done in my living room. I had googled local services and Freeman Plastering came up. My experience was very positive from the outset, Kevin was polite, friendly, on time, did a fantastic job and in my opinion pretty reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend him.

Great work and very happy with the job Kev did for us. Several rooms painted including spray painting kitchen cabinets and doors. An excellent job and it gave us the finish we wanted from the start. Great communication and engagement about our needs, reliable and communicative throughout. Left the house clean and tidy and was always willing to help. Will definitely be using this company again.

What is the difference between stucco and plaster?

Although there are many similarities between stucco and plaster, there are several differences. The term ‘stucco’ refers to a particular type of plaster; it is generally rougher than plaster, although can be also be smoother is more versatile than most types of plaster, but it is also typically more difficult to apply, with surfaces needing to be prepared before. This preparation often involves putting a metal lath on the wall, on top of which the stucco is applied in 3 layers – ‘scratch’ coat, ‘brown’ coat, topcoat. 

How long will stucco last?

On average, we would expect stucco to last between 50-100 years, and possibly even longer! So it really is a great, durable material.

Is stucco fire resistant?

Yes, it certainly is! This material has been put to the test and is reported to have an impressive 1-hour fire rating (meaning that homeowners will have 1 hour before the material is affected by the heat and fire). It is vital that professionals like ourselves apply this finish to ensure maximal fire resistance.
