When installed correctly, hard coat and synthetic stucco systems are great at protecting your home from severe weather, but when it comes to the hard-impact hail storms that we are accustomed to here in Colorado, your stucco and EIFS could be in trouble. As we enter hail season here in Colorado, have your stucco system inspected.
Don’t put off inspecting your stucco and EIFS after a storm
After a severe hail, wind or thunder storm most people will check their roofs for damage and ignore the rest of the exterior. As durable and weather resistant as stucco is, whenever there is a hard-impact hail storm or flying debris your stucco could be at risk of being damaged. Stucco can blister and crack from overexposure to the elements over time. If you’ve gone through several Colorado seasons with thunder, tornadoes and hail the size of tangerines there’s a chance your stucco system could be about to buckle under the pressure. Don’t put off the inspection, if your system has been compromised, you want to nip that damage in the bud before it becomes too costly to fix.
Don’t ignore stucco
and EIFS damage
It may just be a tiny crack, so you ignore it. Before you know it, water is seeping into your exterior flooding your home with toxic mold and bacteria. Once moisture is entering your home, it only takes 24 hours for the mold to begin to grow, leading to some expensive repairs, not to mention health risks to anyone living or visiting your home.
The more you know about the state of your home, the quicker you can find and fix any problems that could arise.
