Wood vs stucco exterior? I know that stucco is better but a lot of the older houses have wood exteriors. Any problems with having wood exteriors?

Asked by David Young, Sacramento, CA Sun Oct 30, 2011

I was told that its best to buy a house with stucco exterior since it requires less maintenance and will last longer than wood.

My personal preference is stucco. The elements (and critters) wear out the wood much quicker and it must be sealed to be protective.

Hi David,
You have to paint wood more often. Keep the wood painted and you should be OK.
Good luck,
