Stucco is durable, resilient, low maintenance, and aesthetically pleasing as a home exterior option. The key to keeping your stucco home looking nice for many years is that the installation and any necessary repairs must be completed by a professional. Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company has seen firsthand what can happen if the stucco hasn’t been properly maintained, and we have made many repairs on stucco homes over the years. Here are some signs that you may need to have your stucco repaired.
Cracking and Gapping
Call Worldgate if you notice any cracking or gapping on your stucco. Working with stucco and exterior insulation finishing systems (EIFS) cladding requires exact measurements that vary depending on the desired texture, color, and climate. Improper mixing and application can result in cracking and disrepair. Climate, moisture, leaks, and settling can also result in cracking and gapping.
Water Stains or Mold
Stucco and EIFS repairs don’t have to be costly but they must done correctly. If you notice any water stains or mold on the exterior of your stucco house then call Worldgate for a consultation. Water intrusion is the most common issue with these systems, and so it is vital to protect your investment. Inspect the exterior of your home semi-annually, paying close attention to areas of surface penetration sealed with caulk.
