Default Stucco Problems & Building Envelop Issues

I am having problems with water penetrating my walls. I have posted some
questions here in the past. I recently created a website to document my
problems. If anyone has any experience with regards to stucco, I would
appreciate your thoughts:

In addition, if you are aware of any forums that are more specific to this
topic, I would like to know where they are so I can post questions there as
well.

Thank you,
Chris

Default Stucco Problems & Building Envelop Issues

?

I used to have a stucco house that was built in 1907. The house was
painted only twice in 90 years. Stucco never leaked, moved, anything -
this was in the midwest. Stuff was thick though ! People telling you
that there is no way to build a stucco house that won't leak, are full
of ****. WHY would any house ever been built from stucco if that was
the case ?

I don't understand why this hasn't moved on to a legal stage, whether
arbitration or lawsuit.

Is the stucco company a contractor to you, or a sub to the company you
paid to build the house ? If you didn't contract directly then
wouldn't you go after the primary contractor (builder) ?

Default Stucco Problems & Building Envelop Issues

I haven't ruled out the legal process, but I am told it is complicated
because I am not the original owner of the house, and there is no contract
tieing myself to the builder/stucco contractor. I do have recourse against
the prior owners, but I must prove that they ought to have known about the
problem; this may be difficult to prove because we've had a number of dry
years so a judge may rule they knew nothing about it. If there are any
Canadian's reading this, who are familiar with the way the courts work, I
would be glad to talk to you. I have talked to two lawyers thus far, and
have decided this is the last path I want to pursue.
