There may be a time when you need to remove the stucco siding on your home. There could be many reasons for this, but if done correctly the job can be done easily with few complications.
That does not mean that removing stucco siding is going to be quick process. In fact, removing stucco siding from a home is a long, tedious and labor-intensive project. Stucco is a very durable cement product that can last for over 50 years. It is not going to come off easily.
Before attempting to remove any of the stucco siding on your home, consider some safety precautions:
- Remove all obstacles from the general area. Tripping over garbage and pieces of debris is a leading cause of injury on a job site.
- Keep an eye out for falling debris. There is always an inherent danger of something falling on you. Stay aware of your surroundings.
- Work with a friend. Removing stucco is hard work and requires quite a bit of elbow grease. Work with a friend to avoid over exertion or becoming so focused on your job that you forget your surroundings.
Needed Tools For Removing Stucco Siding
- Circular saw with carbide blade
- Pry bar
- Safety equipment (gloves, boots, eye protection, face mask)
Whether tackling a small section or large surface area, the first step in removing stucco siding is a small cut. Most people will want to get out the sledgehammer and start pounding away at the cement product. This is the last thing you should do. In fact, you should leave the sledgehammer in the garage for this project.
Start by using a chisel and hammer to knock off any loose stucco siding that you may see in the general area. This goes for stucco above your head. When prying off large sections of stucco, and the following layer of stucco lath, simply jar the pieces loose and let them fall.
After scraping off the loose stucco, you can begin to land harder blows to the surface with the hammer. This can loosen the stucco from the home surface and cause some cracks.
Pry Larger Sections Off
As you begin to see cracks and pieces falling off, you can start using the pry bar or a shovel to begin taking off larger sections.
- Important Note – Before getting too carried away with the demolition of stucco, you must remember that it is a work area. Large chunks can be very heavy and even cause other sections to fall.
As you work, lifting off these bigger sections, remove them immediately from the area. Do not leave lying on the ground as an obstacle to trip over.
