ASSESSMENT: Greg was our 1st client ever to call from Hyde Park At Polo Club. Since Greg, we have completed over 20% of the stucco homes in this beautiful gated community in Cherry Creek. Greg was concerned about weathering trim boards around his garage doors. Lime came to inspect and noticed a much bigger problem. We showed Greg the multiple hairline cracks throughout the stucco substrate throughout the home showing the body of the stucco was compromised. We elaborated that it is very common to see this type of cracking in Colorado somewhere around the 8-10yr mark on average, give or take based on the thickness level and the quality of the stucco coating. We also noticed inconsistencies in the stucco color as some areas that were more shaded by trees were a darker color compared to the areas of the stucco that were direct sun exposed, which were more spotty and faded. Lime also suggested the benefit of caulking all the seams and joints of the stucco to the wood soffits as that is never done with the traditional stucco coating andnot doing it allows moisture to penetrate the seams and excellerates the breakdown and exposed cracks in the stucco.
ADVISE: Lime power washed the home to remove years of dirt, chalking, and build up from the stucco substrate. Next we masked, taped off, caulked, and thoroughly primed every micro crack and all medium and large sized cracks in the stucco around the entire home on both first and second stories. Next, Lime’s experienced craftsmen sprayed the home with a thick consistent coating of SW Duration Satin. Now Greg has a beautiful home for the next 10 yrs and is covered by a lifetime warranted paint. The stucco now is both consistent in color throughout all areas exposed to the sun or covered by shade and has a new water seal and new integrity is established between both the stucco and soffits and windows. Greg was happy to review us on the BBB and recommend us to neighbors in which we have painted 20% of the homes now (exteriors, interiors, epoxy floors) in the Hyde Park At Polo Club Community.
