Many homes in Chester County appear to be made of stone, but things aren’t always what they seem. Few homeowners know that what they believed was cultured stone is actually pieces of concrete layered over stucco. And while the finished product looks nice, it’s only a matter of time before it starts to develop mold underneath.
That’s what happened to this homeowner. When they discovered a crack in their mortar, they knew something was wrong. When our team visited the property to inspect the crack, they found signs of water penetration below the windows on the first floor, which was seeping down into the basement.
We took out the rotten wood and mold and replaced their exterior cladding with new siding. Now, the home not only looks great, but we stopped the mold in its tracks!
This customer was smart to call us before their problem became more severe. It’s a good idea to check your home for signs of water damage every so often, and a good place to get started is with a free siding consultation.
