Stucco Remediation Specialist Serving Southeast Pennsylvania and the Greater Philadelphia Area
You likely love the warm, inviting appearance of your stucco exterior. However, you may be dismayed to discover your stucco is harboring mold, rot, and water damage underneath.
Porter Family Contracting offers stucco remediation to eliminate stucco failure for good, so you can be confident in your home’s value, well-being, and longevity.
Why Does My Home Have Stucco Damage?
Stucco is a water-absorbent material prone to cracking—making this product susceptible to moisture damage in Philadelphia’s wet climate.
Stucco deterioration occurs when moisture becomes trapped beneath your stucco and causes mold growth, rot, and structural damage to occur. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this frustrating problem—stucco remediation.
During the remediation process, Porter Family Contracting will remove your old stucco, repair the underlying moisture damage, and cover your home with durable, water-resistant siding.
Our Stucco Remediation Process
1. Diagnose the Problem
During your consultation, we’ll verify if the black streaks, cracks, or gaps you notice on your stucco’s surface indicate underlying issues.
2. Remove Old Stucco
Once we arrive, we’ll carefully unfasten your old stucco from your exterior to reveal the water damage, mold growth, and rot beneath.
3. Fix Underlying Damage
Our team will expertly remove wet, moldy sheathing and insulation and replace them with new, dry materials, and of course, we’ll fix the source of the water leak(s).
4. Remove Windows and Doors
We will remove windows and doors if they’ve also suffered moisture deterioration and replace them with proper flashing to prevent future water damage.
5. Install New Siding
Finally, our team will install beautiful, lasting siding on your exterior to rid your home of moisture-related stucco problems forever.
Replace Damaged Stucco with Weather-Resistant James Hardie Siding

Plus, the HardieZone System ensures your siding is equipped to handle every aspect of your climate—including harsh storms and temperature changes.

You can’t avoid rain, snow, and ice in Pennsylvania—however, you can control your home’s ability to combat inclement weather.
