Can my contractor install siding over stucco?
This depends on the condition of the stucco.
If the stucco is starting to peal and strip, it may be necessary to remove all the loose coating before the vinyl can properly be installed. However, if the existing stucco is in decent condition, your contractor should be able to install the vinyl siding over top of the stucco. Before he can do this, he will need to install vertical wooden strapping, which gives the vinyl something to to be nailed into.
