I’ve recently had some work done to repair/patch various sections of failing stucco around the perimeter of a house, which was likely subjected to years of sprinkler water. The repair cosmetically looks good, but I noticed they covered over the drip screed edge with the stucco coating, rather than leave it for moisture to escape. Some of the stretches of wall which are covered are up to ~8’ in length. Is this likely to become an issue for me?
You need to maintenance/clean the bottom of the weep screed channel clear of debris that gets blown in by lawnmowers, leaf blowers, wiper-snippers or insect webs every month or so.
Get up early enough and you will see birds combing the area for a meal of trapped insects or spiders.
