The single biggest threat to stucco is water infiltration. Water damage is usually unnoticeable until it begins to form visible cracks which is usually coupled with rotting wood and possibly even mold growth. Water damage can stem from improper caulk joints and chimney flashing.
( Exterior Insulation and Finish System) One of the most common issues with EIFS is bird nesting. If untreated, bird nesting can cause damage to your stucco house as it can create an environment for mold to grow where there is no waterproof system in place. Without maintenance wood framing, insulation, and sheet rock can be tarnished easily. Aside from the damage to your property, black mold can also cause illnesses.
Correction After Stucco Inspection
There are several reasons why stucco inspections need corrections:
Non proper caulk joints
System is improperly terminated below grade
Stucco system brought down to roof
Lack of kick out flashing, or second floor expansion joint
