Homes by Avi Informative - Stucco application on my New Home
CALGARY -- See the full story at: http://leakyhomesbyavi.blogspot.com
I love the look of stucco, always have. When it came time for me and my family to build a house, a stucco exterior was one of the things my wife and I could agree on (that, and tile floors.) Little did I know that choosing stucco was going to cause me so much grief and wasted time! The Calgary new home builder who built my house (Homes by Avi and their stucco sub-contractor Kazan Construction) either did not know the Alberta Building Code, or decided not to follow it when they stuccoed my house.
So, if you like stucco and are thinking of adding it to your new home, or if you built a stucco house in Alberta in the last 10 years, read on. For those readers outside of Alberta, most of this applies to other provinces, but you should check your local building codes to make sure.
