In an ideal world, all siding would be installed properly, with moisture control components in place to handle precipitation so it doesn’t cause issues. Unfortunately, the reality is that all too many installers cut corners, leaving out key elements or using inexpensive, low-quality products that will fail before long. If you’re concerned that the stucco or siding system on your home in eastern PA or NJ was not expertly installed, your first instinct may be to look for a stucco repair company near me.
While simple repairs can patch problems temporarily, they won’t get down to the root causes of why the system ultimately isn’t performing as it should be. What you really want to find is a stucco remediation service, which will remove the problematic siding to reveal the issues beneath and fix them in full before skillfully reinstalling new siding.
At Ai Restoration, we take stucco system flaws seriously – and rightfully so, as they can cause an enormous amount of damage to a structure, in the form of leaks, mold and mildew, dry rot and other hazards. As a full remediation company, we do more than just “repair” or “re-side,” as these tactics won’t actually correct the origins of siding damage.
- Removing the stucco
- Remedying any damage uncovered
- Addressing inadequacies throughout the system
- Addressing decks, stoops, high grading issues, roof lines, etc.
- Assessing and correcting flashing
- Resetting windows/doors
- Installing a high-performance water-resistive barrier and drainage path
- Installing a new siding product of your choice, per the manufacturer’s specifications
As an example of what we can do, take a look at the before and after photos at the top of this post. These homeowners wanted to say goodbye to their worn stucco in favor of a gorgeous combination of stone and James Hardie cement board siding. The transformation doesn’t just look stunning; the system is also complete with all the necessary moisture management components for extended protection, so this beauty will last.
