What is Fucco? It’s that crappy fake stucco that seems to be taking over New York and Long Beach. Well, in my continuing efforts to stop the fucco parade, I am pleased to post this Yahoo article titled 7 Red Flags for Home Buyers.
From the article:
Synthetic stucco siding. This must be installed precisely or else moisture will be trapped behind it, resulting in mold and decay. In the worst case, the siding will have to be replaced. For a medium-sized house (1,250 square feet of exterior surface area), replacing vinyl siding can cost $2,500 to $8,750, while wood or fiber cement siding can cost $5,600 to $10,000 or more. Especially in humid climates, you may want to pay for a special inspection. HouseMaster charges $600 and up, depending on how much of the material has been used and the size of the house.
So fucco = mold. Why do I care so much about Fucco? It’s just personal taste, right? Well, Sorry. It’s ugly. It doesn’t look like real stucco. It doesn’t make your house a Mediterranean house. It looks cheap and it brings the entire neighborhood down.
Fucco haters are now starting to call Fucco houses ‘Taco Bell Houses.’ HA! That is hilarious.
I hope that somebody who is even considering installing Fucco on their house reads this and thinks twice. This fake stucco is the Hummer of house renovation. It’s just plain embarrassing. Please Long Beach, say no to Fucco. Pressure the Long Beach building department to not allow anymore of this type of contruction to continue, or Long Beach will look like cheap, crappy shit. That’s right. SHIT!
