Article Summary: 

Stucco is an attractive, durable building material that can last as long as 100 years. However, it is susceptible to certain types of damage, which can be exacerbated by exposure to water and mold growth. To avoid water damage, it is important to identify and repair stucco damage right away. Signs of water-damaged stucco include water stains, tear-like stains, cracks, increased home humidity, mold growth, dark streaks, bubbles and cracks along the bottom edges of walls, and soft spots on the exterior or interior. It is essential to schedule repairs as soon as you notice a moisture problem.

Rainbow Restoration can help you to repair water-damaged stucco. The four basic steps for repairing most water-damaged stucco are to remove the damaged section, patch the area with a stucco mix, apply three coats of the stucco and allow for drying time between applications. If the stucco has been water damaged for an extended period, an IICRC-certified water-damage remediation expert can determine the extent of the damage and perform professional water damage restoration services.
