As a siding material, stucco has a long-standing reputation for being resilient and versatile. But, in order for these perks to be delivered, proper installation that includes waterproofing stucco walls must be carried out. Let’s dive deeper into what this entails and what can happen if the proper measures aren’t taken to protect an eastern PA stucco house as it’s exposed to moisture.
Waterproofing Stucco Walls for Lasting Protection
At Ai Restoration, we excel in addressing stucco system inadequacies such as lack of effective underlying drainage or flashing. We also all too often find that a cheap, thin moisture barrier product was installed under stucco, setting the stage for moisture to come into the walls over time and cause mold and mildew concerns.
How exactly does our team respond when a homeowner notices red flags like leaks or disintegrating stucco, or if a stucco evaluation suggests insufficient waterproofing that could be resulting in extensive moisture damage? Take this project we recently completed as an example:
Our homeowners discovered some damage caused by water leaking in under their existing siding. We repaired the damages, installed our self-adhered Delta Vent SA water management system, reset the windows with sill pan flashing and then installed new James Hardie shake siding. We updated and installed new cable railing on their roof top deck, too. A beautiful home, now well protected from the elements thanks to our professional application of a top-quality system!
