If you’re a homeowner with a stucco home, stucco removal, also known as stucco remediation, should be on your radar. Over time, stucco exteriors develop cracks, water damage, and other issues, compromising the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of your home. Stucco remediation offers a range of benefits that make it a compelling option for dealing with a stucco exterior. By addressing existing problems and fortifying your home against future damage, stucco remediation can not only enhance the curb appeal but also protect your investment, providing a durable and visually pleasing exterior that will stand the test of time.
WHAT IS STUCCO?
Stucco is a popular exterior finish used in construction and architecture. It is a type of plaster composed of cement, sand, and water, mixed together to form a paste-like material. When applied to the exterior walls of a building, stucco forms a hard, durable, and weather-resistant surface. It can be textured, smoothed, or even molded into decorative patterns, allowing for a wide range of design possibilities.
Stucco is a common siding material used in many of the homes in our area. The problem is that it’s susceptible to moisture and mold. Because it’s less durable than other siding materials, damaged and unrepaired stucco can cause significant issues with your home’s infrastructure. For example, stucco is absorbent and when it gets wet, the flashing can fail. This is the reason we recommend stucco remediation and not stucco repair for most homes that have stucco damage.
IS IT BETTER TO REPAIR OR REPLACE STUCCO?
Repairing a portion of the stucco wall may not completely fix the problem. For that reason, we recommend remediation in most cases. We urge homeowners to be proactive to avoid stucco remediation before the stucco fails. By replacing your home’s exterior surface with more modern and advanced siding products, you can save yourself some major headaches.

WHAT IS STUCCO REMEDIATION?
Stucco Remediation refers to the process of replacing the damaged stucco on the exterior of a building. Stucco is a type of cement-based plaster that is commonly used as a decorative and protective coating on the exterior of buildings. Over time, stucco can become damaged due to various factors such as water intrusion, improper installation, or age, which can lead to issues such as cracking, bulging, or delamination.
Stucco remediation typically involves an assessment of the extent and cause of the damage, followed by repairs or replacement of the affected areas.
The goal of stucco remediation is to restore the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of the building’s exterior while addressing any underlying issues that caused the damage in the first place. One of our certified siding technicians will thoroughly inspect your home for damage, then recommend the best course of action to ensure that your home’s infostructure is intact.
