Stucco is a siding material most commonly made by mixing cement, water, lime and sand, which is used as a decorative coating option in buildings for the exterior of both ceilings and walls.
It is also often used as a sealant over areas of damage or other materials used in construction.
There are many types of cases that require the retention of a stucco expert witness because stucco is a commonly used construction material.
Despite its popularity and applications, stucco is not without its share of issues if not used in a proper manner by construction professionals.
Stucco is known as a water resistant material and is a repellant against outside elements and weather-related problems.
It is therefore often the fault of the stucco manufacturer or construction company when such material fails to protect the structure in question.
Since stucco is used on the outer layer of walls and ceilings, defects and damage in stucco is not uncommon.
Experts in this area have a comprehensive background in construction materials and related situations such as:
- Window installation
- Wall systems and coatings
- Surface defects
- Structural performance
- Sealant failures
- Finish deterioration
- Curtain walls
- Attachment materials and techniques
- Water intrusion
All, above, should be utilized under strict guidelines and construction building codes.
Lawsuits involving the use of a stucco expert witness occur when the material has failed in some way, such as allowing weather damage or other elemental harm.
