When purchasing or renovating a home, the exterior cladding material and its long-term performance should be a matter of primary concern. After all, an improperly installed siding system can lead to major headaches and safety concerns, necessitating expensive intervention down the line. With this in mind, many house hunters in eastern PA — where stucco is a very common siding material — wonder: How long does stucco last on a house? Let’s discuss.
How Long Does Stucco Last on a House?
When installed the right way — with a full moisture management system underneath, allowing water to drain out of the siding and thus preventing mold, mildew and leaks — stucco can be expected to continue looking great and performing well for many decades.
Unfortunately, there are all too many cases where:
- The proper installation techniques are not followed
- The products used are of inferior quality
- The stucco itself is fine, but what’s underneath is not sufficient to manage moisture, leading to the stucco being overwhelmed and water intruding into the wood frame and even the interior walls
Even installing stucco in the wrong weather conditions can affect its long-term performance. So, it’s vital to ensure you are partnering with true exterior professionals who have the necessary qualifications to remediate or install your stucco siding for lasting protection.
