I need some guidance on the subject material. I looking at buying a stucco home in birmingham, al. I have heard a lot of negatives about this material. The home was built in 1996. The stucco was recently worked on(cut off the ground approx 4 inches, expansion joints placed in the material, around the windows, etc. Can you give me the pros and cons on this type of material? Should I be concerned about resale of home made of this material? Can also direct me to some other sources of info on this subject? Any info you provide will be greatly appreciated.
