Recladding is the process of removing the existing exterior cladding (EIFS, cedar, etc.) from a home and replacing it with a new facade in brick, stone, stucco, cedar, hardie board or a combination of these materials. 

Reasons homeowners decide to reclad:

  • Existing EIFS exterior has extensive damage and repairs are costly
  • Concerns with EIFS exterior in regards to future repair and maintenance issues and costs over the lifetime of the home.
  • Increase marketability of home that currently has an EIFS exterior. Reduce days on market and increase market value of home.
  • Desire to give the home a “face-lift” – improve the curb appeal by adding stone or brick to update the look of an older home.
  • When the cost differential between repairing the existing EIFS exterior and recladding the home are evaluated and recladding makes more sense.

If you are considering recladding your EIFS home, JAD Exteriors has the experience, training and customer sensitivity required to make your project a success.
