Stucco continues to be one of the most popular exterior siding options in Pennsylvania. Stucco is aesthetically pleasing and can match the color of your choosing, should you decide to update your home’s exterior.
Water leaking into windows and doors is a common issue among homeowners where the stucco installation is not complete. Sealing stucco around windows is an important part of the installation process, especially when preventing cold air and moisture from entering the home in the winter.
If you have concerns that the windows in your stucco home are not sealed or installed properly, contact us. A professional remediation company like Ai Restoration can help you determine the extent of the problem and possible damage.
Why Sealing Stucco Around Windows is Important
If not directed properly away from the walls and windows, water can do a lot damage to your home’s interior. It can seep in through cracks and gaps around the window to places where it can’t dry out. There, it eventually turns to mold and rots the wood frame of your house. This compromises your house’s structure and also your air quality and health if allowed to permeate the interior walls.
However, if installed correctly, stucco will contain a water management system. This means it will have a way to keep water out of the walls and windows. If your home has no stains, gaps or cracks around the window, that’s a sign indicating your stucco was installed correctly.
