Although stucco is an extremely durable product, improper stucco installation can lead to catastrophic damage to your home. The stucco you see when you look at your home is only the outer layer of a complete siding “system.” Problems can arise at any layer of the system, and the more missing or damaged layers of the system, the more problems you will have.
As it’s impossible to see under the stucco to know if the proper system was installed, it is also almost impossible to visually see all of the possible underlying damages without a full evaluation.
Having an expert like Ai Restoration, a company who has been remediating stucco concerns for over two decades, come out to your home to evaluate the stucco is truly the best approach. You don’t want to take any chances on allowing one of your greatest investments to start deteriorating right underneath you.
