Installing stucco on your home can be a major undertaking and a big investment. That’s why homeowners often wonder, “How long does stucco last?” The good news is that properly installed stucco is very durable and long-lasting. In this blog, Ai Restoration, the premier stucco repair, remediation, and restoration company, discusses the top 3 tips homeowners should keep in mind when considering stucco installation.
Top 3 Tips for Stucco That Lasts!
- Experienced Installation: Stucco is not cheap, but it is an amazing value. When installed properly by skilled craftsmen, a stucco exterior has the ability to endure for 50, 80, or even 100 years. If you’re looking for the durability and elegance of a stunning stucco exterior that will truly protect your home, you need to enlist a company that has both experience of installing stucco and knowledge of how it behaves in our northeast climate. Once installed, preventative maintenance is the next step to ensuring your stucco stays in its best condition.
- Consistent Maintenance: Ideally, your stucco has never caused any problems for your home. In order to maintain that standard, you have to show your stucco exterior some love. This means you’ll want to become familiar with your stucco in each season and at different times of day to recognize any changes that occur. After all, you’re the first line of defense to recognize potential cracking or other issues. Next, you’ll want to hire an expert to inspect your stucco exterior on an annual basis. Our expert eyes at Ai Restoration will notice if there’s an issue you have missed. We can then offer recommendations for any necessary repair and remediation.
- Professional Repair and Remediation: Once we give you our recommendations, we know that you may get a second opinion. Whether or not you choose to do so, we feel confident that you’ll recognize the fairness and quality of our services. However, the one thing we suggest you definitely avoid is any DIY solution. Too often, we end up being called after DIY repairs that have caused much bigger problems, leading to thousands or tens of thousands of dollars in repairs.
In truth, instead of asking “How long does stucco last?” a better question may be, “How long do I want my stucco to last and what will I do to maintain it?”
