Stucco remediation on modern home

A mix of sand, cement, lime, and water, stucco siding looks completely different from the vinyl siding that is the primary choice for most new homes. Unfortunately stucco siding is probably best known for the myriad of issues and headaches it can cause. For example, water getting behind your stucco and damaging the walls of your home is the most common stucco problem for homeowners in our area.

These are the key signs of common stucco problems you want to look for:

  • Large cracks in the stucco siding
  • Bubbles or bulges in the siding
  • Pieces of stucco falling off
  • Stucco that always looks damp or discolored

If you have seen one or more of these signs – or you just the want the peace-of-mind that comes from an expert inspection – we encourage you to reach out to our team.

We bought Choice windows in the past and we were pleased with their windows.. So, we called Choice windows when we needed a new front door with glass outer door. Chad was very kind and professional and was wonderful to work with. ( He was also very kind when we called to fix something.) Jeff did a good job installing the front door and glass door. Barry was kind and helpful when he came today to do one change. I would highly recommend this company!
We are engaging Choice Home Remodeling to completely gut and rebuild our kitchen. We have been working with Alyssa during the design stage and found her to be both flexible and responsive.Choice has done a number of projects for us, including a bathroom, windows, and triple panel door to our deck. They communicate well and follow up to make sure that we get what we want. If you are within an hour or two of New Holland, PA, check these guys out!
We had Choice install the most beautiful second floor sunroom ever. They began the project in December and worked through the cold and wind to finish in the end of January.They were very professional, punctual and paid great attention to detail. The workmen were very pleasant to be around and always had time to listen and discuss any issues we had. We would recommend them to anyone that wants a quality job done at a reasonable price.
This was the most professional and 100% the best price out of all the sliding door quotes I received. They were thousands less than other companies and the door is beautiful. Took them only a few hours to install and made it look beautiful. I recommended them to all my neighbors and friends already. Dont waste your time getting quotes from anyone else. Beautiful job Choice!
