Each has its own set of pros and cons, and fortunately, Standing Lites works with all three. Whether you need masonry work, stucco or siding installation, inspection, or repairs, you can give us a call any time for a free estimate.
Stucco has a unique and easily identiﬁed texture. It is generally chosen by builders and homeowners due to its durability, easy maintenance, and uniform attractiveness. It’s been used successfully for hundreds of years and comes in many different colors to match any home design.
One of the major upsides is, stucco is ﬁre and impact-resistant and holds up well to harsh weather. It is important to note, however, that stucco performs best in dryer climates due to its porous nature. It can last at least 50 years before needing to be replaced, but we typically recommend repainting after 20 years or so.
An alternative to more expensive options like stucco, brick, and wood siding is vinyl siding. There are two types of vinyl siding:
While foam-back is a bit more expensive, you can reap the beneﬁts of lower energy costs over time. Vinyl is durable and doesn’t require excess maintenance, not to mention it is very affordable. With proper care, vinyl can last up to 75 years.
While some homeowners don’t love the look of vinyl, the siding comes in endless colors and styles to ﬁt any home perfectly.

wood-like appearance. It is considered a synthetic wood or
pressboard, made from processed wood and adhesives.
