Watch Out for Stucco Cracks

June 30, 2014  

stucco repair in Seattle Stucco is a lightweight finishing material that is extremely useful for home and commercial-buildings. It provides a very durable external surface that can withstand the elements for years, including sun, rain and wind. However, stucco is prone to cracking over time, especially when exposed to extreme temperature changes on a regular basis. Most cracks are not a big issue as the stucco is simply in place to take the brunt of the elements, not block out every bit of moisture. Instead, underlayment beneath the stucco takes care of this task. For stucco repair in Seattle, J.J.Jefferson can help with projects both large and small.

However, where stucco layers begin to crack significantly, the separation can spread far beyond just the initial damaged area. This crack spreading can turn into bubbling or chunk separation, with whole pieces coming off the house wall if left unattended and ignored. Once that occurs, the house inner layers are then exposed to the elements, particularly moisture, which can cause a lot of damage very quickly. Mold for example can set in quickly.
