Stucco Remediation


Many homeowners want the cheapest and quickest solution when it comes to addressing their stucco home’s issues. Unfortunately, stucco repair is a temporary fix and can lead to greater problems in the future by the virtue of cutting the stucco wall. While some contractors conduct a partial wall repair, MHX Designs recommends performing a corner-to-corner repair at a minimum as a newly repaired area will not match the existing stucco’s color, texture, or thickness.


When it comes time to choose your home’s new exterior, MHX Designs offers numerous products and solution options for stucco replacement. We will work with you to find the perfect solution to fit your budget in order to protect your home and maximize your investment. Our most popular stucco replacement products are James Hardie Fiber Cement and CertainTeed Vinyl siding solutions.


The Remediation process involves removing the stucco from your home and taking the necessary steps to ensure proper protection in order to meet current building standards, Remediation should always be part of the repair or replacement process. We start by removing all stucco to fully assess damages and installing proper Water Resistive Barrier (WRB) systems to protect your home. The remediation process will determine whether additional work will be needed.
