Wind driven rain and water intrusion on stucco walls

Wind driven rain and water intrusion on stucco walls

Hi everyone
In this video I describe why you shouldn’t leave a small amount of stucco at the top of a wall where the wind with the rains may reach up to 80 to 100 an hour, even if it protected under an eve. When you are re doing a wall like this it is much better to remove all the existing stucco so that we can waterproof with 2 new layers of paper all the way up to the roof line. If this home were in Alameda or flat lands I would have agreed with the owner to leave it where it was and simply tie into it.
Life as a big time contractor, you gotta know theses things.
Thanks for watching and have a good day!

Who am I?
I am Marko Vovk a full time home inspector for about 30 years. I have taught thousands of home inspectors at the National ASHI convention, many local home inspector conventions, many home inspector weekend seminars, ICC, and other conventions. I have thought a National ASHI convention for the last 8 years. I have performed over 14,000 home inspections, have a degree in civil engineering, have licenses in WWI, Lead, and Radon, and have certifications in CEI, ICC, CO, HVAC balancing.

Course Description:

This course will provide the experienced home inspector all the necessary skills to perform Residential Forensic Home Inspections. This course will give both the novice and experienced home inspector an edge in diagnosing residential home inspection conditions. Goals of the course will include learning about the various moisture intrusion vehicles, building science and understanding basic building science concepts. Numerous forensic investigation case studies using a variety of forensic tools will be provided to accomplish this objective. Moisture can cause serious damage to the structure of your home. Moisture causes more than billion in damage to homes annually, from minor damage like peeling paint, to major damage, such as rotting, crumbling structural floor joists. You can greatly reduce the cost of moisture damage in your home and eliminate the risk of structural loss if you learn how to control moisture. The PPP movie will provide you with this valuable information. It is important to control all sources of moisture that enters homes. Most moisture that is generally known to cause problems in homes is roof leaks, basement leaks, and plumbing leaks. These three types of leaks are the most obvious. Less obvious moisture infiltration sources are as follows:

1. Rainwater

2. Groundwater

3. Capillary suction below grade

4. Capillary suction above grade

5. Air movements

6. Air pressure

7. Vapor diffusion

Real-time Alert Management and Detection of Saltwater Intrusion in Aquifers

Our natural water resources are not infinite. Overexploitation (due to overpopulation, industrial and agricultural policies or mass tourism) is leading to a gradual and sometimes irreversible damage to our water resources.

This risk is particularly acute in coastal areas where excessive strain on the water supply is causing salt intrusion, thereby damaging pumping stations and threatening the quality of groundwater.

Only a targeted, continuous and proactive management of these aquifers (done in-situ) can prevent this threat and avoid an expensive, lengthy and difficult remediation process.

The imaGeau innovative technology can address this issue by proposing the following:
– A continuous and dynamic monitoring of the quality and availability of water resources
– A high frequency time series and historical data log over several months or years
– Online access to groundwater data for monitoring and sustainable management.
