Stucco Patching and Waterproofing
Waterproofing is important in any home, but with a stucco exterior it can be even more crucial. Largo Stucco and Stonework will use your existing stucco as scaffolding to apply the waterproof membrane at an overlapping 12 inch line on all sides of the house (except for windows). They’ll then cover that area with a bottom-coated veneer.
A good rule of thumb is to waterproof the exterior stucco once every five years, but if you see water damage in your home’s foundation or basement then you’ll want to contact our team sooner rather than later because this could be an indication that there are leaks in your home.
What is the purpose of stucco patch repair?
Stucco patching is important because it can be a home’s first line of defense against water damage. Other than caulking, which should only be done after all the other waterproofing has been applied, this will usually be your last step before painting or staining your exterior walls.
Stucco patching is a great way to maintain the stucco on your home’s exterior walls. It prevents water from getting into gaps between brick or stone and entering your foundation, which can be very costly to repair when it happens.
Waterproofing is done to stucco walls for a few reasons. The most common reason is as an insurance policy against leaks in your roof or gutters, which eventually could cause water damage inside your home. It can also be used if you are experiencing flooding during storms and need to prevent future problems on the exterior of your home.
In order to get the most out of your waterproofing investment, it is important that you invest in a quality product. There are many companies and products on the market today, so be sure to do some research before making any decisions. Largo Stucco and Stonework is happy to help you figure out what will work best for your home.
