Common Causes of Stucco Damage or Stucco System Failure

Many stucco systems rely upon installation details that are completely concealed after the system is completed. The most important part of the stucco cladding system is the moisture barrier and flashing system. Defects and damages can occur due to poor insulation detailing by installers, construction workers, builders, or other workmen. In many instances, damages are hidden within the wall cavity and are not until identified until professional testing is performed and the defects discovered.

Stucco defects and failure can also occur:

  • Improper installation or inadequate number of expansion joints
  • Improper curing time before coats
  • Improper thickness of material
  • Improper plywood sheathing installation
  • Improper selection, installation, fastening, or use of metal lath for installation
