Known for its durability, stucco is an amazing option for siding on your home that will last – provided it is installed properly. When it comes to hard coat stucco installation, it’s vital that you choose a company with a proven track record of excellence for stucco installation and repairs.
Hard Coat Stucco — What Can Go Wrong?
Stucco is comprised of a series of layers that come together to create a durable exterior for your home. The top layer is the only one that you can see, but problems can arise at any layer of the system. Oftentimes, if a contractor tries to cut corners or save money during the application process, more than one layer can be missing or damaged, leading to even more complications as time goes on.
How to Tell If There’s a Problem
While the untrained eye cannot possibly tell if a stucco system was properly installed, an expert stucco remediation company such as Ai Restoration is perfectly equipped to provide a consultation and develop an action plan for remediation to help restore and preserve the stucco exterior of your home.
What Are Common Stucco Problems?
There are several causes for staining on stucco, ranging from harmless (but ugly) to signs of greater damage (and still ugly). Whether rainwater has washed contaminants from your roof to cause a stain or the wood underneath your stucco has rotted, it’s important to get the stain assessed so that you can take the appropriate action to prevent further damage.
Cracking in your stucco can indicate several kinds of damage. Small, localized cracks can suggest water damage that is limited to an area, whereas general cracking throughout the stucco can indicate improper stucco application.
Water trapped behind stucco is an invitation for moisture to wreak havoc on your siding. The easiest way to spot moisture problems is by looking for stains behind pictures hanging on exterior walls or open areas in the attic or basement. Signs of mold in these areas could indicate water damage throughout your stucco.
