Identifying Features of Arizona Homes: Part Four

This fourth of four RPM East Valley blog posts completes the discussion of architectural and structural trends that are found primary in Arizona and the rest of the Southwestern United States. Known for warmer temperatures, lower precipitation amounts, prevalent sunlight and fewer seasonal changes, houses are often crafted with

  1. Shade as an emphasis of the exterior structure (resulting in roofed porches, covered entryways, etc.)
  2. Flat or nearly-flat roofing shapes (in the effort to not have to air condition unnecessary attic space)
  3. Horizontal space usage (rather than vertical, thanks to the abundance of open space), and
  4. Stucco as a building material

Unfamiliar to many home owners, particularly from outside of Arizona, Stucco is comprised of a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water, typically making up the outer layer of a homes exterior walls. This is heavily used in Arizona primarily because of its strong resistance and durability against the intense heat and sunlight, creating a more insulated home to keep an air-conditioned home insulated. Economically, Stucco is cheaper than most other similar materials, and is easier to apply. Additionally, because Stucco is partially made of concrete, it is also more fireproof than virtually all alternatives.
