All About Stucco Exteriors

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.

Stucco Repairs

Over the years stucco will require some light maintenance and potentially repairs after being exposed to the elements.

Common cosmetic stucco problems:

Structural stucco problems:

Common reasons that stucco can experience problems are poor workmanship, using inferior materials and techniques, and failing to install expansion joints. It’s important to identify and address and stucco issues promptly before they potentially turn into more costly problems.

Vinyl Siding

An alternative to more expensive options like stucco, brick, and wood siding is vinyl siding. There are two types of vinyl siding:

  1. )  Hollow-back (non-insulated)
  2. )  Foam-back (insulated)

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.

Engineered Wood Siding

A very popular product among homeowners is LP SmartSide, a durable and versatile engineered wood product that offers longevity and variety. Color options are virtually endless, bringing a unique personality and style to your home.

Types of LP SmartSide:

As one of the most dependable and enduring engineered wood siding options on the market, LP Smart Side beats out traditional siding options when it comes to superior protection from hurricanes, rain, hail, termites, and fungal decay.

Shiplap Siding

Shiplap has proven to be a trend that isn’t going away anytime soon, with homeowners opting for both interior and exterior shiplap walls. Its smooth appearance and milled pattern with overlapping boards give a shadow line effect in between each board.

Shiplap is available in pine, cedar, and even hardwoods, and is resistant to rot, decay and termites. You can opt for a natural, raw appearance or have it painted a color that will give your home an added touch of personality. Our experts can help advise you on the best wood for the climate you live in.

Hardboard Siding

Hardboard siding is a low-cost option with an attractive, wood-like appearance. It is considered a synthetic wood or pressboard, made from processed wood and adhesives.

Though this material is not as popular these days due to more resilient options coming into play, many homeowners still have hardboard siding on their homes. Because it is a highly absorbent material, it needs diligent care and maintenance. Our experts can help assess, repair, and preserve your hardboard siding through regular maintenance.
