I've seen houses go through facelifts in magazines where it appears as
though the original vinyl or wood (or somesuch) siding was replaced
with stucco. How difficult is this? How expensive? I'm thinking of
buying a house whose outside is textured stucco on the bottom floor
and some sort of siding on the top floor. I think it looks bad and am
wondering what it would take to replace it all with smooth stucco.
Any ideas or advice would be well appreciated.
