This book explains what textured-coated cladding systems are and it looks at the rules and regulations, health and safety, tools, recoating and maintenance of repainted textured finishes.
For their successful use, texture-coated claddings - typically stucco, EIFS (exterior insulation and finishing system) or texture-coated flush-stopped fibre-cement - rely on good detailing and installation, a cavity, a coating to seal the surface against moisture penetration and regular maintenance of that coating to ensure the surface remains weatherproof.
Other claddings with similar finishes include plastered masonry veneer, lightweight aerated concrete (also known as autoclaved aerated concrete, AAC) and polystyrene block walls, and a small number of plastered and lightly textured concrete masonry and concrete buildings.
