Stucco Nightmare


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I thought some of you might be interested in reading about a nightmare stucco job in Pennsylvania.

The lady who owns the house came onto my building science forum on JLC on May 11th of last year to describe how her house was rotting away around her and to seek some advice from professional builders.

Some of the guys were resentful that a non-contractor had signed on and was asking for information, but most of the guys sympathized with her plight and it turned into one of the best-discussed topics we'd ever had.

In the end, through an interesting collaboration of contractors on the JLC forum, her own contractors and a lot of pluck, she's finally nearing the end of her ordeal.

There're some interesting learning points in that thread for any home inspector that regularly sees stucco.

Here's the link to the thread on JLC:

Here's the link to her blog with nearly 400 photos from discovery through the nearly-completed and resided house:
