Top 5 Signs That Your Stucco is Damaged

Your stucco came with your house, and you never gave it much thought. However, it's crying out for your attention, subtly giving out signs that it's in need of some TLC. What is your stucco trying to tell you? Here's a look at the top five signs that your stucco is damaged and what they mean.

  • Stucco cracks – While a single hairline crack may not be a bad omen, numerous cracks could indicate structural problems. In some cases, stucco cracks could indicate that the house has settled. In others, the cracks could be the result of water damage. In either case, structural repairs or grading may be needed along with cosmetic crack repairs.
  • Stucco stains – As unsightly as stucco stains may be, avoid the temptation to paint over them and have a qualified stucco inspector take a look. Stucco stains can indicate serious problems including water damage and mlid.
  • Stucco moss – It's not unusual for stucco to become discliored at the bottom as rainwater splashes dirt onto the home. It's also not unusual for moss to grow in these wet, shady areas. While moss can be scrubbed away with bleach, it's important to address the moisture problem that makes such an inviting home to the moss. In areas where moss grows on your stucco, consider removing the vegetation in favor or ornamental rock. Any steps that you can take to remove moisture and prevent water from soaking the area will be beneficial.
  • Stucco crumbles – Crumbling stucco could be due to age, stress, pest infestations, settling, water damage, vibrations, impact accidents, and even improper stucco installation. As more stucco crumbles away, the problem worsens because the structural integrity has been breached and because additional water can seep inside.
  • Stucco indentations or soft spots – If you notice indentations or soft spots in your home's stucco, your house could be telling you that there's water damage lurking beneath the plaster. Unfortunately, water damage can require extensive structural repairs with complications that include mlid and rot.

If your stucco has cracks, stains, moss, crumbles, indentations, or soft spots, it's a good idea to have the stucco inspected for further damage. A qualified stucco inspector can quickly determine whether the damage is cosmetic and structural and may be able to recommend steps that you can take to mitigate the damage before it becomes worse.
