The Cost to Replace Synthetic Stucco in Metro Atlanta

If you have Synthetic Stucco on the exterior of your home or if you are buying a home with Synthetic Stucco you will want to replace the Synthetic Stucco with another product on the exterior of your home. If you are lucky enough to be buying the home you will get a discount on the price of the home that will fund changing the synthetic stucco to siding, brick, stone, hard coat stucco or something else.  The cost of replacing this has some hidden costs that you should be aware of so you know what to expect for the overall cost and to make sure the you are doing the process correctly.  The first thing is be prepared to find some rotten wood underneath the synthetic stucco that you cannot see or detect.  Just because you don't see anything on the inside walls that would point to that.  Having done several of these be prepared to find that and have some addtional funds that you can use to cover these costs.  I would suggest having a contigency of 10% of the jobs total value for these kind of things.  Remember that you will have a lot of variables to consider.  You will need to remove the existing material and install a moisture barrier around the home.  You may need to extend the plumbing faucets.  You will need to paint everything.  You will need to install a footing or have an engineer design the support if you go with brick and stone.  You will need to repair the landscaping as required.  You may need to remove your deck and reinstall it if you are doing brick or stone.  Don't let anyone brick around the existing framing of your deck.  This is a shortcut you will pay for later.  As far as cost goes a good rule of thumb for a 5000 sq.ft. home would be:
  • Cement Siding around 45K
  • Hard Cost Stucco around 80K
  • Brick and Stone around 120K

  1. Good news for bargin hunters. Many homes on the market are in foreclosures due to siding issues. LP siding and synthetic stucco always top the list of concerns for buyers previewing older homes. Having the option of replacing the exterior by Master Works brings new life into homes covered in dated materials. For the latest foreclosure and new home searches across metro Atlanta please visit

  4. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your pictures, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
