Do you have water or moisture issues at your home in Minnesota? Moisture can be found all types of siding materials. Some contractors believe that removing stucco and replacing old siding with fiber cement siding will solve the problem is a false assumption. If all things are equal, moisture intrusion can occur behind fiber cement board, brick, stone and cedar siding homes just as it does behind stucco.
For that reason, Sunset Construction Group strongly recommends you interview a repair contractor with experience in the moisture intrusion field before installing James Hardie, stucco or other siding materials. Even with current codes, there are improvements that can be made to common installation methods to help ensure your home doesn’t have issues 5-15 years down the road.
