Whether your home is hundreds, decades or only a couple of years old, the unfortunate truth is that siding system issues can surface at any time if the original installation wasn’t completed skillfully. On a stucco home, for instance, cracks in stucco around windows might appear if moisture management problems are at play. So, how do you determine if your stucco imperfections are just cosmetic, or if they require action on your part to handle and prevent worsening structural damage? Let’s discuss the right steps for finding out.
If something seems “off” with your stucco, it’s important to seek the opinion of an exterior professional as soon as possible. Here’s why:
- Left unaddressed, stucco system flaws can result in devastating water damage.
- For example, missing or inadequate flashing around windows and doors — or lack of a high-performance moisture barrier — can result in water penetrating at these openings and getting into the walls.
- With nowhere to go, this moisture will breed mildew, mold and rot, possibly leading to leaks and creating an unsafe living environment for your family.
Cracks in stucco around windows are one of the most common signs indicating that the system beneath the exterior is failing to properly handle moisture. And, these problems are bound to get worse until you attend to them.
