Minnesota Stucco Repairs: Case Study #3, Full-Tear Off and Redo

This blog post is the third in a three part series, written by Reuben, which has been posted at our new moisture testing web site.

In the first two blog posts of this three-part series on stucco repairs, I covered a home that had minimal stucco repairs performed for the most cost effective solution.  In part two, I covered a home that had a partial stucco tear off and redo, often referred to as a "wall-to-wall" repair.  The walls that were intact were left alone for the repair; only the walls with damage were opened up.  For this third part, I'll be discussing a home that had the stucco completely torn off, and the entire house re-sided with fiber cement siding.

Reuben is a second-generation home inspector with a passion for his work. He grew up remodeling homes and learning about carpentry since he was old enough to hold a hammer. Reuben grew up thinking he was going to be a school teacher because he enjoyed teaching others so much. In a sense, that’s a lot of what home inspections are about, so Reuben truly does what he loves.
