Did you ever drive down the highway past a rocky outcrop and noticed all the pieces of fallen rock at the side of the road? Did you ever wonder how the pieces of solid rock became shards and rubble on the side of the road?
That is the power of winter weather. It can take the largest of solid boulders and reduce it to rubble over the years. A small crack or crevice lets in a tiny amount of rain, the temperature drops, the rain water freezes, expanding as it does so, and POP… off breaks a chunk of rock, caused purely by the pressure of the expanding ice.
The same effect happens on stucco homes. Winter and cracked/damaged stucco is not a good combination. Rain, snow and ice falling on damaged stucco can exacerbate stucco damage rapidly. Cracks become larger, the stucco bulges before eventually breaking away and falling to the ground, leaving large vulnerable areas of your home exposed to the elements.
