The Benefits of Certification

The Sealed Cladding Technician certification obtained at the Stucco Institute allows the holder to apply the elite Sealed Cladding System– a cladding system that has been regionally adapted for Florida’s Zones 1, 2, and 3, as defined by the International Energy Conservation Code.

Only Certified Technicians who have been taught the specific details and follow the Sealed Cladding System Installation Specifications can install the Sealed Cladding System.  The use of the Sealed Cladding System requires the work to be done by someone trained to either install or supervise the installation of the system to ensure uncompromising quality and performance.

All Sealed Cladding Technicians are included in the List of Approved Technicians.
