If you’re a homeowner with stucco issues—or are looking to prevent issues—the experts at Glick’s Exteriors are here to explain why stucco remediation is better than stucco repairs. There’s no denying that stucco looks beautiful, but when it wasn’t applied by an expert craftsman, it is prone to a variety of home issues. These issues include:
- Cracks in the drywall
- Bubbling and peeling of paint
- Mold growth on interior walls
- Insect infestations
- Increased humidity inside the home
Repairing Stucco Doesn’t Reveal Potential Underlying Damage
Although patching stucco address surface issues, such as cracks, bubbling and peeling, it won’t address issues beneath the surface. Unfortunately, most stucco exteriors—especially ones that already have surface issues—are prone to underlying issues. The only way to fix these stucco issues is via a stucco remediation. In order to avoid mold, mildew or insect infestation, a full replacement is the best plan of action.
Stucco Remediation Is a Long-Term Fix
Unlike with stucco patching, which is only temporary, stucco remediation is a long-term solution. That’s why Glick’s Exteriors, after years of experience with stucco remediation and repairs, feels stucco remediation is better than stucco repairs. Particularly in the Northeast with harsh winters and humid summers, the best way to protect your home is to replace your stucco with a different type of siding. Whether you opt for vinyl, fiber cement, stone, brick or wood siding, these will require less maintenance and increase longevity when compared to stucco.
