Sto Corp. is a world leader in cladding, coating and restoration systems. The company is now reaching out to the Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) market with three finish system options for ICF walls. Each option provides long-lasting protection and is available with a wide range of color and texture choices.
Sto’s multiple-layer coating system is recommended when walls are straight and flat with little leveling required. This choice utilizes Sto base coat, reinforcing mesh, an optional Sto Primer, and a choice of Sto finishes. The company recommends the use of Sto’s Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) when walls have a greater need for leveling. This choice adds additional Sto insulation to the exterior and includes reinforcing mesh. It also can add an optional Sto Primer, and one of the many EIFS finishes offered by Sto.
When you need to finish a wall with a harder finish, Sto Corp. reccomends the choice that includes Sto Powerwall Stucco. It incorporates the stucco, a metal lath, Sto Primer, and a Sto Powerwall finish. Sto textures currently on the market for ICF systems include Fine, Medium, Swirl, Freeform Custom, Limestone, Granitex and Decocoat. Sto’s internal design consultative group, Sto Studio, will provide architectural renderings of possible color options. This is available to help the contractor or the owner make a decision.
