Cork Spray is getting increasingly popular in Canada and US. Many times we are asked "Why should we choose Cork Spray over Stucco when they both look the same?"
1. CORK SPRAY IS MORE FLEXIBLE
The biggest difference between these two products is what they're made of. For instance, stucco is mainly concrete meanwhile cork spray is a combination between resin and cork particles. This makes the Cork Spray much more flexible and provides the building with a certain room to move. Every building's structure moves ever so slightly and the resin being flexible, provides that room to move. When it comes to stucco, given the fact that it is concrete, it cracks when things are shifting underneath it.
2. PROVIDES AN EXTRA LAYER OF INSULATION
One of the greatest advantages of using Cork Spray instead of stucco is the fact that it provides an extra layer of insulation and it's more fire resistant than other products.
3. CORK SPRAY IS EASIER TO APPLY
When it comes to applying the cork spray, it is easier than stucco because it is a spray rather than cement. With this being said, if you choose to go with stucco you have to make sure the installers for it are extremely good otherwise you put yourself at risk of having a cracking stucco job. When it comes to cork spray you can ensure that the certified installers you hired, can apply it and the job won't have cracks.
4. 10 YEAR WARRANTY
If you decide to go with Cork Spray when you hire a certified installer through CORKCO CANADA, you get a 10 year warranty for the job. This is an extra assurance that you will be satisfied with the product and if something goes wrong CORKCO will take care of it.
5. DO IT YOURSELF
If you don't want to hire someone to apply the cork spray for you, you can do it yourself. You can purchase the equipment needed to do the job or you can save more money and simply rent them from www.corkco.ca
When it comes to applying it yourself, you get a 1 year warranty on the cork spray if you applied it correctly.
6. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Given the fact that the cork spray is made out of resin and cork particles, it is more environmentally friendly than other chemical based products. In a world where we are constantly trying to improve the impact we leave on the planet, it is important to take this factor into consideration too.
