But while stucco a great siding choice, many homeowners in southeastern PA are finding their stucco exteriors in disrepair.
Water trapped behind your home’s stucco can move back to the surface in a process called “efflorescence” – leaving behind water-soluble salt on the stucco’s exterior. If you can see this powdery residue, water has seeped into your stucco.
Water evaporating through your stucco causes bulging and bubbling called delamination. Delamination is usually the result of a bad vapor barrier installation, poor bonding or moisture in the walls. If you find any protruding pieces of stucco, call an expert to take a look.
Notice any thin, long cracks, missing or chipped pieces of stucco? These external damages can let water into your home’s wooden exterior. And if you see heavy staining, discoloration or black streaks, you’ve already got water issues.
Another tell-tale sign of a poor stucco job is rot near exterior fixtures. Check your outside windows, doors, light fixtures, electrical outlets, pipes, meter boxes and chimneys for dark spots, stains, cracks or the smell of wet, rotting wood.
An installation specialist will inspect your stucco absolutely free. After that, you’ll get a detailed repair or remediation plan.
