7) Question: “I hear that today’s stucco homes are built correctly and that the problems exist only on older homes. Is this true?”

Answer: NO! I see the same ignorant mistakes made today that were made 10 years ago and often enough, by the same contractors. I have re-built new homes ranging from incomplete new construction to homes less than one year old. Given the right conditions and detail deficiencies, severe structural deterioration can and will occur within the first year.
