Stucco is a tried-and-tested home exterior material; but, if it is improperly installed, issues are bound to crop up before long. In cases where stucco remediation is needed to address stucco system inadequacies, a homeowner may consider a stucco to siding transition in the process. Siding has attractive benefits of its own, and some people prefer its look to stucco. So, what needs to be done in order to swap out stucco for a different type of siding? The stucco remediation professionals at Ai Restoration are here to tell you more.
Upon discovery of stucco issues, some homeowners jump to the conclusion that the stucco itself is what’s problematic. In reality, damage is far more likely to originate from what lies underneath, in which case simply replacing the stucco won’t fix what’s wrong.
There may be components missing from the greater stucco system, such as proper flashing and a comprehensive, expertly designed and installed exterior building envelope that manages water and air. Getting to the bottom of underlying issues and fixing them the right way will require thorough investigation and true remediation, not just a surface-level stucco repair/re-side.
Once all damage and system deficiencies have been addressed, new stucco or another siding product of the homeowner’s choice will be installed according to manufacturer instructions to complete the remediation process. For those considering replacing stucco exterior with siding, Ai Restoration offers several beautiful, high-quality options:
