Wind driven rain and water intrusion on stucco walls

Wind driven rain and water intrusion on stucco walls

Hi everyone
In this video I describe why you shouldn’t leave a small amount of stucco at the top of a wall where the wind with the rains may reach up to 80 to 100 an hour, even if it protected under an eve. When you are re doing a wall like this it is much better to remove all the existing stucco so that we can waterproof with 2 new layers of paper all the way up to the roof line. If this home were in Alameda or flat lands I would have agreed with the owner to leave it where it was and simply tie into it.
Life as a big time contractor, you gotta know theses things.
Thanks for watching and have a good day!
