Stucco paint maisture wicking - PIC
I'm looking for an opinion on why the paint on my stucco is failing.
Both roofer and mason seem to think the water is wicking from the lower roof at the tie in point to exterior wall. The roofer put up a flashing kickout to direct water away from 'point' and reach gutter first.
Before I invest the money to repaint the stucco, I want to consult the crew here and ask if you think that was the cause and would you move on to paint with added 'kickout'. ???
Can one point of contact cause all this wicking in an almost 270 degree fashion?
If not obvious. Water seems to have traveled down to foundation wall between portch and shutter.
'wicking' wraps around to apex of portch roof.
In an effort to also re-insulate my attic, I came to wonder if I might have two problems here.
Since my home is a 'balloon' construction without wall insulation I have wondered if the ice daming that I get as a result of poor insulation is causing water droplets to drip down the inside of my exterior wall finding a resting place where you see the 'wicking'. How plausable is this?
