It’s not uncommon for stucco homes in the NJ and PA area to be suffering from water damage. Stucco was designed for hot and dry climates; here we have too much moisture that’s able to slip under and begin rotting away at the home’s structure.
When it comes to what you should replace it with, it depends on what you’re looking for. Are you looking for a new material that’s durable, resistant to the problems stucco brought, and may even boost your home’s energy efficiency? If so, let’s talk about how insulated vinyl siding can be a good replacement for your rotting stucco.
Benefits of Insulated Vinyl Siding
When you find out that moisture has been trapped under your stucco and eating away and compromising your home’s structural integrity, it’s normal to want to replace the siding and solve the problems as quick as possible. Vinyl siding is a quick solution that can be installed relatively quickly while not costing an arm and a leg.
At the same time, with insulated vinyl, you’re still getting that durable exterior that you wanted with your stucco. The foam insulating dramatically improves its impact resistance and vinyl is just naturally resistant to water damage and rotting.
That foam insulation also muffles outdoor noises and provides an extra layer to your thermal insulation. This means your home will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing the stress of your heating and cooling systems.
Insulated vinyl siding is a great choice when replacing your rotting, damaged stucco. Interested in a free quote on insulated vinyl siding? Give us a call today.
