Extreme Moisture Damage behind Stucco

This luxury home in Hot Springs rests on one of the most sought after points on Lake Hamilton. It was listed for several million dollars by the previous homeowners. What the previous owners failed to mention to potential buyers, was that behind the home's EIFS system and below the roof line, the structure of the home was near collapse in several places and a danger to live in.

Project Details

A lavish residence situated on a prime point of Lake Hamilton, previously listed for millions, faced undisclosed perils that threatened its very structure. Concealed behind an attractive EIFS exterior was a critical situation: the risk of collapse due to severe moisture damage and mold. After numerous local companies were contacted and a complete demolition recommended Sideco was called. 

Sideco stepped into this challenging scenario, armed with the proficiency and determination to save this grand home. The rescue began with the painstaking removal of the synthetic stucco exterior that had failed. The extent of damage was severe, but it was hidden from view.

The expertise of Sideco's crew shone through as they meticulously eradicated the extensive moisture damage, ensuring the home's safety and stability. The reconstruction was supported by a robust, moisture-resistant Zip System, safeguarding the home from future water intrusion.

James Hardie vertical board and batten siding and trim were selected to replace the faulty exterior, chosen for their renowned durability and moisture resistance. This restoration was not merely a repair; it was a transformation that fortified the home against the elements while revitalizing its aesthetic appeal.

The after photos capture a stunning transformation, with the elegant white James Hardie siding enhancing the home's grandeur against the backdrop of Lake Hamilton. This was not a mere facelift; it was a comprehensive overhaul that restored integrity and confidence to a home that once teetered on the edge of ruin.

The dedication of the entire Sideco team, a crew with 32 years of experience and thousands of projects behind them, was evident in their swift and thorough workmanship. While we at Sideco prefer to refresh exteriors that have aged gracefully, saving a home on the brink of destruction is a task we approach with the same commitment to excellence.

The homeowners were kept in the loop throughout the process, a testament to Sideco's professionalism and communication. The impressive scale of our staff ensured the completion of the project within a mere three weeks, a feat that showed our pledge to quality and efficiency.

This home on Lake Hamilton, once veiled in uncertainty, now stands as a beacon of restoration success, a testament to the skillful intervention by Sideco that prevented total loss and transformed potential tragedy into enduring beauty.
