Despite our numerous warnings about prepping your Colorado home for winter, we know that some of you thought you still had a lot of time left on your hands. After all, winter isn’t official until December 21st, right? Yup, you’re right, but try telling that to the inches of snow that have been covering our state from Denver to our mountain communities.
Stucco repair specialist in Denver area
Argue all you want, but winter is here, and it’s most likely not going anywhere for a few months. For those of you who didn’t get to prep your home for winter you are now crossing your fingers hoping that your home is tight, and all systems are working at optimal capacity. Hopefully, your stucco cladding system has been installed properly and isn’t damaged, hopefully, your gutter system and kick out flashing is secured properly and deflecting all moisture away from your home. Hopefully, your windows are sealed, and hopefully, your foundation is still standing strong to support your home through another Colorado winter.
But, if the recent snow has proven that some of your moisture deflecting systems are failing, and you fear that water is penetrating your home, it’s time to call in professional contractors as soon as possible. It is not optimal having to repair stucco in the winter time, but if your stucco or EIFS cladding is failing, it’s better to repair the damage immediately and not let it sit all winter.
Fixing your three coat stucco system in Colorado mountain communities
The biggest concern with having to repair or replace stucco is allowing for the three coat stucco system to dry properly, and you also need to prevent the stucco from freezing. As stucco is a cement based product, you need to leave time for the three coats to cure properly before moving onto the next. This means bringing in heaters and tarps to fix the problem correctly and avoid a similar situation in the future.
Repairing stucco in the wintertime is not easy, and it isn’t cheap, but waiting until spring will only let the damage spread and by the time you get to spring, the original flaw could have started a domino effect of damage that has spread to your entire home. The best thing you can do for your home and your money is to hire a stucco professional immediately who knows the intricacies of installing stucco correctly, using skilled craftsmanship and quality materials.
Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you have to do is call, and Metro Reconstruction will be there to fix all of your stucco, EIFS, or other exterior problems from Denver, Genesee, Golden, Morrison, Littleton as well as the entire Front Range and Mountain communities of Colorado.
