I heard a rumor that stucco houses tend to be "hotter" internally than brick houses. We will be building a stucco house and hearing this statement has made me cautious since this is Louisiana. I figured that if you have the right type of underlayment & insulation, this should not happen. For those of you with stucco houses, please give some advice. We are presently deciding on what type of stucco to use (eifs or traditional). We are trying to find a balance between durability and aesthetics. In other words, we don't want to be able to punch through an exterior wall with our bare hands (eifs)but we also don't want the wavy imperfections I often see on traditional stucco jobs.
