This beautiful home in Yardley, Pennsylvania needed some serious stucco remediation. The process began when the Yardley homeowner got in touch with us about obvious and visible dark streaks underneath their windows. These dark streaks were visible on the exterior of the stucco and this alerted them. One of our KLM Contractors stucco remediation experts did a free consultation for the homeowner and looked into the status of their stucco. Almost immediately, mold underneath the stucco was confirmed and stucco remediation would be the only solution. We got straight to work!
Phase 1 – Preparation
To ensure that no damage will be done to your freshly landscaped and valued property, we take various measures to secure your property. Some of the things we do to keep your property mess-free and clean include:
- RB4000 Buggy to manage debris while disposing of molded stucco easily and conveniently.
- Safety Construction Scaffold to secure workers, tools, and other equipment.
- Protection Covers for plants, sculptures, and surrounding grass.
Phase 2 – Removal
At this vital part of the stucco remediation process, we remove all of the mold and damaged stucco. Furthermore, we investigate with special equipment to find any additional water or hidden mold. None of the rotting or molded matter may remain because it can cause the return of the problem going forward. We finalize this phase through a clean disposal of all removed mold and other rotting matter as well as yet another post-inspection to ensure that all mold and water damaged stucco has been removed.
Phase 3 – Reconstruction
In the place of everything damaged that was removed come new reconstructed replacements. All windows are removed and reinstalled with proper water barriers, flashing, window tape, and drip caps. Everything is treated with moisture damage deterrent which aids in the prevention of any future water intrusion. Furthermore, we install weather resistant barriers which shield from all sorts of weather damage. The process is finalized with the reconstruction of the outer sheathing sealed with seam tape. All of this results in complete weather protection and defense against water damage.
Phase 4 – Siding Installation
In the final phase, we install Vinyl Siding as well as new window trims and siding trims. Overall, the installation process must be thorough and executed accurately to restrict any cracks, breaks, and such. A faulty installation can lead to the possibility of water intrusion or infestation and therefore should be solely done by a professional.
