How to Check For Mold Behind Stucco

How to Check for Mold Behind Your Stucco

Stucco is an excellent siding material that you commonly see, but many homeowners who don’t have it themselves don’t know a lot about it. It’s actually made of a mix of sand, lime, and cement. It’s one of the oldest siding materials and is still being used today because it’s been proven generation after generation. Stucco will give you a unique look, rather than going with a generic looking vinyl siding option like all of the other homes in your neighborhood. If you live in an area that’s prone to rain, snow, and humidity, stucco can cause issues for you. Mold and rot issues can end up costing you a lot of money for repairs, so we’ve put together a blog to help you identify mold behind your stucco siding.

Inspecting Stucco

Usually, when you realize that there’s mold behind your stucco, it’s already too late. If you have a home with stucco siding that you’re trying to sell, some potential buyers may shy away from stucco because of the common issues that can arise with it. Mold can become an issue with stucco when it has a chance to grow from water getting behind your siding. Moisture usually gets behind your stucco around the windows, doors, and other structural joints, like where your roof joins with your house. Stucco is made of a mixture of materials that aren’t very breathable, so the product itself doesn’t breathe well. When water is trapped, it stays there and can cause stains, which are clear signs of damage and referred to as stucco tears. 

Over Time

 When you do begin to notice stucco tears on your home, you can be sure that some damage has occurred. It’s time to call a professional for a moisture inspection to learn the extent of the damage. This can make sure that you have your damaged stucco repaired before more damage can occur, costing you more money. Water that can’t escape from behind your siding will weaken your home’s wood framing, windows, and more if left unchecked.

This isn’t to say that stucco isn’t a great siding option. Stucco has a timeless look and has been proven to be durable in all climates throughout the United States. It’s an energy-efficient option as well because it forms a shell around your home that helps keep your heating and cooling costs low.
