When one or more of the waterproofing seals on your home is compromised, the results are easy to predict. Moisture wastes no time making its way into dark and unventilated areas of your home, damaging structural and superficial features alike, and fostering an ideal environment for mold to grow unchecked. Even the smallest of hairline cracks in your stucco can invite a steady trickle of water that reoccurs with every rainfall, creating a cumulative effect that quickly adds up over time. With each day that passes, the need for remediation grows more urgent.

Water intrusion commonly causes damage to drywall, baseboard and electrical fixtures. This requires replacement of not just the affected materials, but almost always goes hand in hand with the treatment of mold growths which pose a potential hazard to your health. On the second floor of most homes, the repercussions of ignoring water intrusion are much more serious: being composed of wooden framework, exposure to water can (and will) rot the supportive structure, which, when ignored and allowed to worsen, can be a legitimate threat to the safety of all occupants.

Tangent has responded to, and successfully remediated, well over a thousand residential homes. We will perform forensic inspections of the intrusion, remove and replace damaged material, expertly treat mold growths, and restore the integrity of your home’s waterproofing measures. All phases are handled in-house by experienced craftsmen, guaranteeing not just professional results, but also unprecedented levels of accountability and clear channels of communication (no more wrestling with three or more sub-contractors with differing schedules and quality standards). Tangent understands that you live in a home, not a construction site, and we make every effort to finish all tasks on your home as soon after initiation as possible, with no compromises made to the quality of our work.

TANGENT CONSTRUCTION SERVICES has been on the leading edge of stucco remediation since the problem was discovered. We have worked continuously with engineering firms and consultants to facilitate the establishment and refinement of the current protocols for proper and efficient remediation. It is through this expertise that we have discovered an alarming trend: there are an enormous amount of homes with faulty stucco, sometimes caused by construction defects. Due to improper installation, the lathe (wire grid) that was meant to support and anchor stucco to plywood walls is not installed to code, leading to flexing and cracking of the material. This, in turn, is inviting water intrusion, which is compounding the problem by worsening the condition of the stucco and potentially damaging the interior structure of the home.

What does faulty stucco look like? Sometimes a few hard-to-spot hairline cracks are the only symptom of a malignant problem off to a slow start. Sometimes it's obvious, with the stucco sheets bulging and buckling as delamination occurs at an exponential rate. Also, stucco that is cracked in a way which may resemble a road map is an indicator of an issue that may run much deeper than a few tubes of caulk will ever be able to fix.

Tangent's experience in stucco renders us uniquely qualified to diagnose and remediate faulty stucco. Our crews work tirelessly to expertly complete projects to code and on schedule, and our project managers go out of their way to ensure that communication is maintained through all stages of the project, making sure that all questions and concerns are addressed.

If you believe you may have faulty stucco, have questions about the nature of the problem, or are curious about the process for restoring your home to like-new condition, please don't hesitate to contact us
