The Sto Difference
Sto takes a complete system approach which means a single source solution for the building envelope. With Sto, our wall system contains all five planes of control – air and moisture barrier, thermal insulation, reinforcement and aesthetic façade surface – in systems that have been tested, are code compliant, and warranted.
Solutions include rainscreen, EIFS, stucco, cement board stucco, hurricane impact systems, specialty systems and systems with environmental product declarations (EPDs), and are available both for field built and prefabricated construction methodologies. Our high-performance systems can accommodate multiple aesthetics without the design challenges of transitions between systems and product compatibility, and offer one wall system from one proven, trusted source for the entire building.
Sto’s wide selection of façade aesthetic surfaces deliver design freedom and a variety of methods to achieve the look you want. Sto surfaces are beautiful and functional. They not only enhance curb appeal but also protect the building. Choose to execute your design vision via traditional textured finishes, our new casted materials, masonry veneer, or large format metal and glass solutions.
The StoCast family features StoCast Brick and StoCast Wood. These custom cast products are lightweight, durable and easy to install.
Our traditional textured finishes and coatings include products that can be tinted in an endless array of colors and offer enhanced performance characteristics, including iQ Technology.
With StoSignature, customizable finished surfaces can be created through application techniques that blend color, texture, profiles, and effects.
Sto Specialty Finishes move beyond the look of traditional finishes and provide lightweight solutions for the look you want to achieve.
If your vision includes masonry veneer, metal and glass, we have solutions to meet those looks too.
Sto offers advanced architectural coatings with unique characteristics that improve building performance and are aesthetically beautiful.
Sto’s architectural coating solutions include products that are fade resistant, vapor permeable, protect against the elements, can be used in horizontal or vertical applications, bridge hairline cracks, come in an assortment of textures and sheen and can be tinted in an endless array of colors.
Our iQ Technology family of coatings -StoColor® Dryonic®, StoColor® Lotusan® and StoColor® Climasan®– are all inspired by nature and are designed to address the true needs of a building, not just the standards. Because these coatings deliver improved function through optimized product attributes, such as self-cleaning, and mold and mildew resistance, property owners will realize greater durability and lower lifecycle costs.
