A full demo is needed (6-8 inches) to enable the building envelope to be tied in correctly and a plaster stop to be installed running the length of the roof (below):

It is important to consult a stucco professional when a new roof has been installed on a stucco home. Roof flashings and diverter flashings at roof terminations must be tied into your existing stucco. This requires a stucco roofline plasterstop install and repair.


The roof flashing installed by the roofers must be placed underneath the tar paper behind your stucco in order to maintain the integrity of the building envelope. This requires the demolition and stucco repair of about 6-8 inches along your roofline.


Today's construction standards also call for a plasterstop to be installed along roof flashings, this raises the stucco 2-3 inches away from the roof. This process discourages wicking of moisture and strengthens the termination of the stucco. This also eliminates cracking and crumbling of the stucco along the roofline, which is very common in older stucco homes.


It's is best that a home owner contacts a stucco professional after a roof has been replaced. This ensures that your building envelope is working properly, and your exterior investment is done correctly.


Why you need to replace the stucco along your roofline?
