Stucco Water Damage Solutions
Each repair depends on the location and size of the damage. Before a repair to the stucco is performed, it is imperative to find the cause of the damage. Was it an improper installation, impact damage, or water damage? If the cause is a faulty stucco application, sometimes the entire stucco has to be removed and installed correctly. Another cause could be a busted pipe behind the wall which caused a leak and crack in the stucco. The pipe is repaired first then the stucco. We do not repair the stucco without finding the cause and taking corrective action to fix the problem.
