Synthetic Stucco Siding

Based on my years of real estate experience, I express concern to buyers considering a home with synthetic stucco siding (versus real cement siding).

The manufacturers and contractors disagree on the “fault”, but either way, the product has not performed well in our damp seashore environment.

The material is porous and absorbs moisture.  Without a suitable moisture barrier,  wood behind the siding stays wet and eventually rots.

Unfortunately,  a homeowner has no idea until the product is removed and lumber is exposed.

This home in Stone Harbor was recently sold – and renovations have started.
