Caulking/ Sealants

  • Chances are your home is not properly caulked or flashed. The most common problem areas are where stucco meets windows and trim.
  • Without proper caulk sealant, water can seep into crevices and cracks and cause considerable damage, which cannot always be immediately seen until after the damage is already done.
  • Monolite Stucco Systems personnel will inspect your home to locate all areas that are not properly caulked and sealed.
  • Once these areas are identified, they will use a sealant (caulking) appropriate for the substrate to create a water-tight barrier.
  • Monolite Stucco Systems uses Dow Corning's 795 Sealant or NP1 which are the industry standard products for use with stucco structures.

BEFORE: No caulking between window frame and stucco allowing the elements to seep into the wood framing and behind stucco surface.

AFTER: Caulking being applied between window frame and stucco siding. Proper application of caulk creates a barrier to destructive weather elements.

Flashing

  • Flashing is another integral part of properly sealing a structure against the elements.
  • The majority of stucco homes have been constructed with the roofing shingles in direct contact with a stucco substrate. When water cascades down the shingles against the vertical stucco plane, the stucco will wick up the water which can ultimately destroy the stucco surface.
  • Many homes are constructed without the benefit of any flashing at converging roof lines or chimneys. The lack of proper flashing can produce costly repairs if not corrected quickly.
  • Typically, the old stucco surface must be removed and new kick-out/diverter flashing inserted. The area is then re-stuccoed and protected from future damage.

BEFORE: Stucco in direct contact with roof shingles is a sure recipe for water damaged stucco and stucco wall failure...

AFTER: Completed repair has removed the contact between the stucco substrate and the roof by installing a kick-out flashing between the two. No future water damage!

Foundation Cutting & Sealing

  • Repair to stucco surfaces can involve many steps to ensure that your home is properly protected from future moisture and is in compliance with State of Georgia code.
  • Monolite Stucco Systems has many years of experience in removing damaged ground level stucco and creating a sealed substrate that prevents water from reaching lower level stuccoed areas.
  • We ensure that a proper gap is maintained between the stucco and the finished grade (ground level) following the recommended guidelines of EIMA.
  • A Moisture Free Warranty can be issued at the completion of the project, giving our customers the peace of mind in knowing that their home has been well protected from future water damage.

BEFORE: Stucco finish at ground level will wick up moisture which causes buckling and failure of the stucco surface.

AFTER: Proper foundation-cutting technique for ground terminated foundation. Cosmetic color matched finish is applied next as the final step.

Stucco Repair

  • Stucco surfaces are not impenetrable. Damage from woodpeckers is not uncommon and can be unsightly.
  • Monolite Stucco Systems can bring your damaged stucco walls back to nearly new condition by repairing the holes, applying a stucco coating, and matching the stucco design. The finish process involves color matching the existing stucco color so there is a seamless patch. Only you and Diversified will know that the surface was ever damaged.

Carpentry

  • We confidently offer carpentry repair in conjunction with stucco repair. Typically this comprises the removal of rotted or damaged wood around window and door frames and replacing the damaged molding.
  • We also offer full window replacement in cases of severe damage.
  • However, our carpentry service is not just limited to doors and windows -- we can replace or repair fascia, eaves and soffits when needed.

BEFORE: Evidence of dry rotting on exterior window sill is an invitation for water to enter the interior of the home.

AFTER: New trim installed, caulking sealant applied and the window looks new again!
