Minnesota Stucco Repairs: Case Study #2, Moderate Repairs

This blog post, written by Reuben, has been posted at our new moisture testing web site.

In my mind, stucco repairs can be categorized as "minimal", "moderate", or "full replacement".  In last weeks blog post, I discussed a retrofit stucco repair performed by Sunset Construction Group (SunsetCG), which I consider "minimal"… not to be confused with "minor".  This week I'll be taking a closer look at a stucco home with a combination retrofit / tear off redo performed by SunsetCG.   This type of repair would be what I consider "moderate".

For the home I'll be discussing, the area I'll be focusing on had missing kickout flashing at a roof end, which led to extensive water intrusion and moisture damage at the front wall.  The areas with damage included the sheathing and framing.
