I'm in the process of buying a house, which is 15 years old and has
Synthetic Stucco on it. During the moisture inspection we found that
there are 6 to 10 places in the wall that has more than average
moisture content in it. The inspector told me that further inspection
must be done to find the actual damage to the walls.
Now what're my options?
Is it good to change the entire synthetic stucco to hard stucco? Or
replace with Venial siding?
What other inspection process I need to do to find the actual damage?
Is it good idea to replace only the damaged portion of it? How can I
be ensured that the moisture won't occur in the future?
Thanks for your time
Before you consider buying it, call your insurance agent and ask if they
will insure a house with synthetic stucco even if it is in perfect
condition. With many companies these days, the answer is a flat "no".
