About the Author Joseph W. Lstiburek, Ph. Visit www. Drainage, drainage and drainage are the key…Did I mention drainage? Also, inward vapor drive. Did I mention that as well?
Can any cladding be worse? Ah, yes.
Take stucco and stick thin stones—both unreal manufactured stone veneer, which is precast concrete veneer made to resemble natural stone and real thin cut stones to the stucco surface. How can this be worse than plain stucco? The are often disastrous Photo 1 and 2. Not only do we get hydrostatic pressure we also have a much bigger reservoir stored and absorbed water and that means inward vapor drive.
Think bad stucco on steroids. However, the problems are easy to avoid. Drainage, drainage and drainage.
Easy, pretty much done here. So, what else is there to talk about?
Not so fast Bucko. There is much, much more. The real stone and the fake stones are falling off stucco all over the place and have been for quite some time. The problems go back decades but have been attributed to issues that I believe are incorrect.
Basically, the argument is that workmanship is the issue. We are not dealing with the rot and damage shown in Photos 1 and 2. We are just dealing with the thin stones falling off. Yup, workmanship. Over and over I get the same argument. I bought into that argument at first.
Sure, there are workmanship issues on some projects. But there have been countless failures where the workmanship was exceptional and supervised continuously by third parties. The failures are now so pronounced we have social media stirring up the pot.
So how is the stuff installed? Now it gets interesting. The patterns of failure are distinctive. Share This.I want to lick and stick!
