Stucco Remediation from the Stucco Specialists of LaBrusciano Roofing & Exteriors
Stucco is a construction material that is often used in the exterior of a home or commercial building. Made of aggregates, a binder and water, it’s a type of cement that is applied wet and then dries down to a very dense solid. While it does have its advantages, especially in warmer climates, it is a porous substance. When it becomes wet and stays wet, it can cause several problems. Leaks, mold and structural damage are all extremely common when your stucco fails. The stucco specialists at LaBrusciano understand how much of a headache this can be to business and homeowners alike and that’s why we strive to make this a stress-free process from start to finish.
We will expertly remove the entirety of the stucco that is present, accurately assess the problem and then quickly fix any damages found. We will then either; reinstall the stucco properly, install fiber cement siding, or vinyl siding from the ground up! With any stucco installation, it’s important to install proper flashing to prevent damages to the interior of the wall. Flashing will help ensure water is carried away, avoiding any future complications.
Stucco failure is often invisible on the surface. If you are buying or selling a home, it’s important to know what’s going on beneath the surface. The certified technicians at LaBrusciano can provide a thorough stucco inspection on your home or business to investigate the condition of your home. They will visually inspect your home, while taking pictures to document their findings. Then a moisture probe is inserted into the sheathing to detect any signs of water damage. If the reading is above 19%, this is considered wet. Your stucco specialist will then test the wall with a single probe to determine structural resistance.
If your home was constructed between 1993 and 2006, the chances of damages to the sheathing and framing of your home are high. There are numerous visible clues that can appear on your residential or commercial property that could be a sign you have moisture intrusion including:
- Missing stucco
- Rot or mold
