Many domestic and commercial buildings in the UK are brick built with a stucco or smooth render façade. This is a legacy of 19th-century architecture, where the technique was a cost effective imitation of stone features. The stucco would be applied to existing brickwork as a decorative, rather than functional, feature.
Unfortunately, stucco facades come with a multitude of problems if they are neglected or poorly maintained. Due to the material and its composition, water will often seep through cracks in the stucco or paint. Once the water gets in, it cannot always escape.
It is in these areas that the water is likely to accelerate the deterioration of the façade. It will weaken the bond between the surface layers of stucco and the underlying layer of masonry. What ensues will not only look unsightly but could pose a health and safety risk.
