horizontal cracking on new stucco homes, Cracks caused by plywood
Hello everyone, in this video short video I am explaining expansion of plywood or OSB sheathing, if it placed next to each other which I see 8 out of 10 times on new or existing homes, this will contribute to hairline cracking especially in the summer in areas which get the majority of the heat.
Direct and prolong summer heat expands Plywood and OSB sheathing which cause’s horizontal cracks in stucco walls.
This is only one fact of about 20 that is a factor often in new or existing stucco homes with multiple hairline cracking.
Fear not my friends as this rarely cause’s leaking, as the two layers of paper stay in tact, however it is unsightly to most folks.
As I said in the video when the sun rises it’s on the front of the home which at that stage it’s always cool, but when it gets to be 10 to 11:00 a.m. it’s beating down hard on the wall in question especially in mid summer which has the worst cracking on the home.
