1. Inspect Your Stucco
You should thoroughly inspect your stucco building exterior twice a year. Pay close attention to areas of surface penetration that are sealed with caulk and look for any cracks that may be present. Stucco and EIFS repairs don’t have to be costly, but they need to be completed correctly.
2. Call the Professionals
If you identify any issues during your twice-yearly inspection, you should reach out to a certified stucco inspector to remediate those issues as soon as possible. Stucco and EIFS should be properly repaired by a professional.
3. Use the Correct Products
Use only EIFS-approved sealants and caulk for surface penetration areas when needed. These areas could include electrical boxes, light fixtures, plumbing lines, faucets, cable lines, satellite dish mounts, and other exterior receptacles. EIFS and stucco require little effort to maintain, and this is the typical maintenance they may need.
4. Keep It Clean
Clean the exterior of your home periodically with a pressure washer that is calibrated to the manufacturer’s specifications. Proper technique and materials are always required to provide an enhanced undamaged stucco appearance.
5. Inspect before You Renovate
You should get a stucco inspection if you are considering any modifications, home renovations, or additions. Even roof repairs would warrant a stucco inspection before they are started. Make sure you hire a certified inspector who specializes in stucco.
