Remove Stucco from Wood Siding
Hi Ron. You're right, it is really odd. Where it was exposed to the elements (not many places), I have peeling which I'm thinking a pressure washer could take off (flakes like old paint when I pick at it). The covered stuff is another story. There's no lath, the construction is in creative layers: Original Siding, 1/16 layer of stucco, blanket of foam insulation (about 1/2" - 1" thick), and finally vinyl siding. At each meeting of the redwood shiplap the stucco seems pretty loose, however on the flat surfaces it feels pretty darned solid.
