How do you know if stucco has water damage?

Try to visually identify signs of rot near windows and doors. You may see dark spots, stains, cracks, or even entire missing pieces of stucco.

Look at your home’s stucco siding and try to identify these common signs of damage:

  1. Heavy staining.
  2. Thin cracks.
  3. Long cracks.
  4. Bulges in the stucco wall finish.
  5. Missing stucco.
