Increase in Moisture related problems

newwebfeatures2Across the country there is an increase in moisture related problems to residential homes. It is not only in stucco and E IFS but many other siding materials including brick. Approximately 70% of leaks are due to windows, almost all where installed improperly with out sill pan flashings. These are installed under the window and  would catch and drain any moisture or water to the outside of the water barrier our better yet outside of the cladding, stucco ,Brick ,Wood siding etc. Also many were installed with out head flashings , this is a flashing and drip edge or Drip cap that is installed on the top of the window. Doors especially sliding doors have the same problems. To name a few other problem areas chimneys caps and crickets behind the chimney .The areas where the most damage is found are at roof to wall intersections no kick-out flashings. Above is a picture of a kick-out flashing these are installed where a roof meets a wall. The water runs down the roof and enters into the wall , behind any exterior siding material. When a kick-out flashing is installed it diverts the water out and away from entering in to the wall.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE ON YOUR STUCCO HOME

Water penetration of stucco is a growing Issue. Getting your home your most
 
valuable asset inspected ,and all repairs done including waterproofing only
 
makes sense.
 
The longer you wait the more costly repairs will be and more problems with rot
 
and mold.
 
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE ON YOUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET MAKES sense
 
Having started in plastering and stucco in 1974 i have more knowledge and  hands
 
on experience.
 
Don"t wait to get your home inspected and needed repairs.
