Good day to all our subscribers on Youtube, and the average homeowner, DIYer, or weekend plastering warrior who happens to stumble on this channel. We have more than 40 million views for a good reason.
We explain stucco and cement plastering clearly so that even my “great-grandma” can understand.
I this video, I'm explaining why these stucco walls cracked. I should say why the stucco has structural cracks as these are past cracks.
Does your wall have stucco structural problems?
We show how to fix hairline cracks in stucco too.
Should you be alarmed by this stucco cracking? No. Concerned? Naturally, the longer you do nothing, the more decayed the wood and stucco could get.
Simply caulk your stucco cracks when they occur, especially where chimneys meet the home.
Caulk them to avoid rainwater, which absorbs the wood frame, causing the cracks to larger each year.
FYI, I used Mor-Flexx as it has sand and is really easy to use, water-soluble.
All the Siaflk1A caulkings I’ve used in the past video is the absolute best for lath as it’s an adhesive and a sealant.
FYI all of the separating stucco on this stucco has occurred because of simple neglect of caulking. If it’s a quality primer and paint with a competent painter doing the prep work, about every ten to twelve years is needed to protect wood and stucco along with all other substrates.😉
On the flip side, one who skimps on painting products or the prep work every 4 years as the stucco develops cracks the rainwater gets in the wood expands, the ants and termites move in for dinner the rest is a feast for bugs than when the rainwater seeps into the cracks and rots/destroys the wood, insulation, sheetrock start to yellow, carpets become damp which creates the mold which sickens entire families, and on and on…….🤔
Let’s face it, maintenance sucks, but avoiding it is ten times worse when you consider the short-term, let alone long term health and financial cost to repair.
FYI, both you and I would love to be on a warm beach hanging out with girls wearing something close to nothing, but maintenance comes first. 😏
