Ackroyd Contracting Ltd. is certified in applying a three-coat stucco system, which provides superior durability and weather resistance for exterior surfaces.

The Three Coat Stucco System often referred to as Traditional Stucco, is the most common method used in stucco application. It includes the application of a scratch coat, brown coat, and finish coat. The scratch coat, applied first, helps to create a strong bond between the substrate and stucco layers. The brown coat is then applied and smoothed to create an even surface for the final finish coat. Finally, the finish coat provides the decorative finish and texture desired for the project. This system offers durability, longevity for exterior walls, and aesthetic appeal. However, it does require more time and labour during the application process compared to other stucco systems.

Overall, the Three Coat Stucco System is a reliable option for those looking for a sturdy and attractive finish for their exterior walls. Ackroyd Contracting Ltd. has experience with various stucco finishes, textures, and colours to fit the aesthetic needs of each project.

Ackroyd Contracting Ltd. is a leader in EIFS installation and repair.

EIFS is a type of cladding system commonly used on the exterior of commercial and residential buildings. It offers insulation, weatherproofing, and a finished aesthetic appearance. The procedure begins with a liquid-applied weather-resistant barrier (LA-WRB) that acts as an air and vapour barrier to protect against outside elements. Insulation boards are then attached to the substrate using adhesive or mechanical fasteners. The reinforced base coat with embedded mesh is added for durability, followed by a finish coat for aesthetics.

EIFS has become increasingly popular due to its energy efficiency benefits and low maintenance requirements. It also allows for more design flexibility than traditional siding materials such as brick or wood. Overall, EIFS offers a versatile solution for exterior cladding that can improve insulation and weatherproofing while also adding visual appeal to a building’s exterior.

Ackroyd Contracting Ltd. specializes in installing outsulation and ventilated Rainscreen stucco systems for commercial and residential buildings. These systems provide superior energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and reduced noise.

Continuous insulation, also known as mineral wool, is a building insulation made from natural or synthetic materials such as rock and slag fibres. This insulation helps improve overall energy efficiency by preventing thermal bridging (heat loss through conductive materials) and reducing air infiltration. Continuous insulation can be applied over the exterior wall sheathing, creating an uninterrupted layer of thermal protection. In combination with proper ventilation, continuous insulation can improve indoor air quality by promoting airflow and reducing moisture buildup in walls.

One example of continuous insulation in action is the Ventilation Stucco System, a method used in stucco-clad buildings to provide continuous insulation and ventilation. This system includes a Liquid-applied weather-resistant barrier (LA-WRB) that acts as an air and vapour barrier to protect against outside elements, a layer of rigid insulation, a rain screen with an air barrier, and an outer stucco system.

Ventilation is achieved with the type of rainscreen we use, creating an increased airflow through the wall cavity allowing the wall to breathe and stay dry, protecting against water infiltration. This combination of continuous insulation and ventilation leads to improved energy efficiency and indoor air quality in buildings utilizing this system. It is important to note that proper installation and maintenance are necessary for the Ventilation Stucco System to function effectively.

Our experienced team is trained and certified in the latest industry standards and techniques, ensuring a high-quality finished product. Contact Ackroyd Contracting Ltd. today to learn more about how we can improve the performance of your building envelope.
