Will faux stucco increase insulation? Will faux stucco increase insulation?
Faux stucco can increase insulation when used as a light artificial wall cladding that contains plastic insulation foam coated with synthetic materials. Such walls are designed to be used for exterior protection and are commercially available in a ready-to-install form. Also known as foam stucco, faux stucco is usually made from polystyrene foam reinforced with fiberglass and coated with a latex based acrylic material. It can also be used to provide a decorative finish to your walls without providing insulation. As just a wall finish, it can be a single coated layer applied directly to the wall surface.
