Stucco homes have advantages but are open to risk. When stucco installed correctly, it can assists in energy efficiency, fire retardancy, and reduces the susceptibility to noise pollution. If stucco exterior is not installed 100% correct, or not properly maintained, there are several large problems with stucco which can arise and end up damaging your home. Most of the time, these issues are water related and have to do with excess moisture becoming trapped in your home. There are three very common issues which result from poor craftsmanship in the installation of stucco or poor maintenance practices:
- Staining – If your stucco is untreated, rainfall can really take a toll on the exterior of your home. Rain brings with it a variety of contaminants which can become absorbed into the stucco and lead to stains. The rainwater can also wash contaminants from your roof and windows into your stucco. Over time, this leads to deposits of contaminants in your stucco as well as an overall deterioration of the stucco.
- Cracking – There are two types of cracking problems in stucco homes – localized issues and more comprehensive ones. Localized cracking is normally due to water damage below the surface, while general cracking throughout the home may be a result of poor workmanship when the stucco was installed.
- Mold – When dealing with issues of excess moisture and water retention, mold is always a concern. This issue is much more serious than the others, as it can hurt your home as well as your family.
