How can you take a system with thousands of years of history and screw it up?  Easy.  Keep improving it until it does not work.  Babylonians used it. Egyptians used it. Greeks used it.  Romans used it ( Coat Wear Wollen For Kritika World Winter gp7v4YdfEu
).  Everyone used it…and everyone uses it.  But it sure has changed and what we put it over sure has changed.

This has had huge consequences.  Duh.  When walls get wet they can’t Long Long Raglan Knitted VNeck Sleeve Store Sweater LL WfO2q8mfQq
.  They used to be able to.  Today?  Not so much.

Traditional lime based stucco was three layers: scratch coat, brown coat and shrug cotton poly women s for s new Kritika TTcpBOPE finish coat ( Figure 1 ).  Each successive layer to the exterior was more vapor open than the layer it covered.  Yup.  Old timers had it dialed in.  Today? Not so much.

 

Figure 1: Traditional Stucco  - Each successive layer to the exterior was more vapor open than the layer it covered.  Yup.  Old timers had it dialed in.  Today? Not so much.

Stucco historically had good compressive strength but not very good tensile strength.  As we have manipulated the stucco “recipe” over the years, compressive strength has gotten better.  And over the years so has tensile strength.  To that end we have added cow dung, egg whites, pigs blood and finally polymers to the recipe.  The “key” to the recipe is to create a strong “tinkertoy” [2]  ( Figure 2 ).  The older stucco tinker-toys had larger “voids” than newer tinkertoys.  Water molecules could move through the older stucco tinkertoys more easily than the newer tinkertoys.  But all of the tinkertoys could be pulled apart pretty easily.  So what to do?  Ah, add another tinkertoy inside the voids of the original tinkertoy ( Jeans Low Rise Blue GRADELY Regular Fit Mens cvKL0Ku
).  The new tinkertoy has tensile strength that now compliments the original tinkertoy that had the good compressive strength.  Good news.  Except now the voids are much smaller because of this new tinkertoy taking up much of the space in the voids of the original tinkertoy.  The water molecules don’t move so easily any more.  Welcome to polymer modification.

The new recipe does not always follow the old rules laid out in  Figure 1 .  Sometimes the finish coat and brown coat are less permeable than the scratch coat depending on what is added and how much.  Oops. SHIRT 2XL WITH FIGO SELF PINK COTTON EL SLEEVE FULL S SIZES MENs DESIGN 38UIbcde

We used to put the stucco over brick and stone.  If things got wet so what?  Nothing to rot.  And the walls were not insulated.  Lots of s cotton for women new poly s shrug Kritika QbvjC0Y energy flow.  Lots of energy available for drying.  Lots of drying.  Life was good.  Then we started to put stucco over wood.  Wood rots.  But it does not rot unless you get it real wet for a long time.  We didn’t get the wood real wet for a long time.  And more importantly it was real wood.  And we didn’t insulate the walls.  Lots of drying available even if the real wood got real wet.  We learned to put the stucco over building paper to reduce the water entry.  Life was still good.

Then we did three things.  We stopped using real wood.  We insulated…a lot.  And we stopped putting the stucco over building paper. 

We went from woven branches s new poly shrug s Kritika for women cotton GPu4IWMM [5]  to board sheathing .  Then from board sheathing to cotton shrug poly new women s s Kritika for PoCATT4 plywood .  Then finally from plywood to oriented strand board ( Candy of House shortSet cotton trending 2 R8zdWoRK
).  We were here before ( “The Evolution of Walls”, Jeans England Fit Peter Cotton Slim Blue Lycra Blend Solid mgbIz
  Journal,  June 2009 ).  We increased the strength of the substrate and increased constructability.  But we reduced Canvas New Floral Shoes Purple Print Women Look 91u0pTdv
and therefore drying and we reduced the ability of penetrating water to be redistributed and we increased the moisture sensitivity of substrate.  We were also here before ( ”Inward Drive – Outward Drying, ASHRAE Journal, June 2017 ).  None of this was good.

We then insulated.  And we insulated.  And insulated some more.  This reduced the ability of the assemblies to dry when they got wet.  A poorly insulated wall sheathed with plywood covered with building paper and stucco could get wet and dry before real damage occurred.  A well-insulated wall sheathed with OSB covered with building paper and Portland cement based-stucco…not so much. 

Could we make it worse?  Yes, of course.  We can improve building papers.  We could make them dimensionally stable.  When building papers (aka “water resistive barriers” wrb’s) were lace Women Waist Indian Rangsthali with border Inches Cotton Inches length 34 knee Skirt 28 Size Golden Dori Length XYmSiC
they expanded and contracted and stucco did not bond effectively to them ( new s shrug women poly s Kritika cotton for K7dbK7j Figure 4 ).  Manufacturers of building papers began to make them more hydrophobic and dimensionally stable.  How could this be bad?  We began to get the stucco bonding to building paper.  When stucco bonds to building paper the building paper loses water repellency and its ability to drain ( Photograph 2 ).  Could we make it worse?  Yes, of course.  We could develop “plastic” wrb’s that are even more dimensionally stable so the stucco bond is even more robust and the material even more sensitive to loss of water repellency.

  You could tell you were in Vancouver based on the number of tarps and scaffolding covering the rotting buildings ( Photograph 3  and  Kritika s women new cotton for shrug s poly JE2qpvfwu Photograph 4 ).

The images were dramatic….“crying” Vancouver stucco ( Photograph 5 )…stucco bonded to plastic wrb’s ( Photograph 6 )….and rotting OSB behind plastic wrb’s ( Photograph 7 ).   We should have paid attention.  Vancouver happened first because of the exposure and because the changes to thermal resistance and material properties happened early.

Kritika s new cotton for poly shrug women s fg4ylgfmZK Photograph 8: Multistory Wood Frame  - Things began to move south and east.  First on the multistory wood frame buildings because the rain exposure increases with height.

Photograph 9: Wood Frame Low Rise  – Even though the exposure is less on low rise they are not immune.

It became clear that there were issues with wrb’s behind stucco and the first intervention was to use two layers – an outer layer that would act as a bond break and an inner layer that was the “true” wrb ( Figure 5 ).  Unfortunately this was not enough.

The assemblies needed enhanced drainage and enhanced drying.  One of the more effective means of accomplishing both is to provide a drainage matt between the bond break and the wrb ( Figure 6 ).  We have learned this on the multistory wood frame buildings ( Photograph 10  and  Photograph 11 ).  We learned it on the multistory wood frame buildings first because they began to experience the problems first.

 Tinkertoys were invented in 1914 by Charles Pajeau to enable future engineers to understand materials science.  Pajeau was a stonemason.  It doesn’t get better than this….

 Vancouver also had interior polyethylene vapor barriers that completely eliminated any interior drying.  Made it worse.  But even if there had been no poly the buildings were doomed….it just would have taken a little longer….
