What is Water Infiltration?
Water damage on stucco is typically unnoticeable until further problems arise from it including cracked, moldy, bubbly, surfaces. Since the cause of alarm is water in general, the damage can happen quickly so it is highly advised to call on a professional as soon as possible to provide a proper inspection of what's happening and to deal with the fallouts.
Busted pipes, improper caulk joints, and wrong installation of chimney flashing are among the common causes of water infiltration.
Cracks in Stucco
Moisture is expected whenever water infiltration happens. Cracks appearing in stucco is a sure sign that inspection needs to be done especially if discoloration and dampness is evident.
Cracks can be fixed accordingly either through invasive or non-invasive methods depending on the extent of the water damage.
Gaps in Caulking
Window sills and other openings are often where stucco water intrusion happens. This is again likely caused by improper construction of the surrounding areas and the consistent built-up of water.
That said, the mentioned areas must have a continuous layer of stucco to avoid water damage. Checking the sills and openings on the stucco surfaces is one of the practiced visual inspections that even the average person can do.
When the stucco surface becomes damp, there's a good chance that water infiltration is happening. It is important to note that stucco expands when it gets wet, so continuity of the situation would lead to cracking and flaking that would allow more water into the different layers of the wall and surrounding areas.
The urgency explained earlier on, it is once again advised to contact a professional to help deal with the stucco problem before it gets out of hand.
Bulging and Bubbles
Bubbling stucco is sometimes mistaken as a concern of the paint that overcoats it so be mindful as you read this that the bulge might be a sign of water damage and more problems to come.
Damp Basement Walls
Most homeowners do not check their basement as thoroughly as they do any other part of the house. This is a common misconception among the masses that can be rectified by knowing that many house-related issues can be avoided by checking this area of the house.
Being at the undermost level where pipes are often exposed, the basement is a brewing place for possible water intrusion from pipes bursting or with the early signs of water damage being ignored.
It is overall prudent to consider the checking the basement whenever house inspections are happening to prevent future mishaps.
