Stucco Cornices – An Alternative from PW Profiles

Stucco shapes, including stucco cornices, have been a favored choice among architectural contractors for enhancing the exteriors of residential and commercial properties with a touch of sophistication. Their easy installation, customizable options, and cost-effectiveness make them a popular alternative to heavier materials like architectural wood, stone, and precast.

However, stucco cornices have certain limitations, regardless of the manufacturer. They are primarily designed – as the name implies – solely for stucco use, which can limit their versatility across various projects. They can also lead to design issues, require more labor, and more.

At Patterson Whittaker Architectural Profiles, we present an innovative alternative to traditional stucco cornices that boasts versatility, affordability, ease of installation, and the ability to be used outside of stucco applications.

Utilizing our EPS technology, similar to traditional stucco shapes, we employ a reinforced cement cover over the EPS core, offering the same benefits as stucco with the durability and adaptability of precast concrete, wood, and GFRC.

Why Choose Our EPS Core Stucco Cornice Alternatives?

Unlike traditional stucco cornices, our foam core cornices are already coated with a reinforced cement layer that can be easily textured to resemble stucco or finished to complement other materials. These products are not “shapes” per se, but final pieces that can be finished to look like stucco – or look like any other popular architectural material, so that you can create a final design that looks amazing when properly installed.

The advantages of our stucco cornice replacements include, but are not limited to:

  1. Effortless Installation – One person can install our cornices with minimal reinforcement, often requiring only adhesive for long-lasting results, even in commercial settings.
  2. Easy Finishing – Our cornices come pre-finished, but they can also be conveniently finished on-site to match your specific preferences.
  3. Durability – Both the EPS core and cement coating are reinforced, ensuring excellent resistance to heat, water, and external forces.
  4. Customizability – Our foam core cornices offer greater flexibility in design, allowing for intricate shapes and fine details to be incorporated into your projects.
  5. Cost-Effective – From shipping to labor to project completion, our products offer competitive or even superior overall costs, helping you save throughout the entire construction process.

Because our cornices are not “just” stucco shapes, they are also not prone to human error, there is very limited installation time nor a need to hire contractors, and you can continue to use our products on other projects outside of the stucco world.
