WHY IS THERE WOOD ROT BEHIND MY STUCCO WALLS?
Why is there wood rot and wood damage behind my stucco walls and whose fault is it that this happened?
Whose fault is it that you have wood damage behind stucco walls? That would be your contractor or builder. The essential problem with stucco is the lack of proper waterproofing and the absence of the stucco to ?weep? or allow water and moisture to escape the space between the stucco and the framing of the house.
Stucco houses have been around for a long time. The problem is not the stucco. It is the ?waterproofing? of the house. This is not just a problem with stucco houses, but it is more pronounced with stucco houses because water behind stucco probably sits and festers much longer than behind other wall coverings.
