[OT] What is that cement-on-styrofoam cladding system?
Subject:[OT] What is that cement-on-styrofoam cladding system? From:"McLauchlan, Kevin" <Kevin -dot- McLauchlan -at- safenet-inc -dot- com> To:<techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Mon, 18 Aug 2008 14:14:15 -0400
Is anybody on the list writing for the construction and renovation
I'm trying to find the generic name of that building-cladding system
(mostly used on commercial buildings, until fairly recently) where you
slap styrofoam on the exterior, carve some "architectural" details into
it, then spray, roll, or trowel a cement-ish outer coat on top. Presto!
Fresh new look on old building. The sites that I've visited so far tend
to use only their own system name for the process and to avoid a generic
term. The Portland Cement Association has a "Stucco" site, but I'm not
totally convinced that I'm looking at the same thing - they refer to
"portland cement plaster". I think they mean something more literally
like lathe-and-plaster than the skin-on-styro thing that I have in mind.
Do we know what I'm talking about? Do I?
