Brand new home with 3-part stucco. The bottom terminated at j-metal but no weep screed. As you can see in the mirror, framing is open to the weather. Gap between foundation and face of stucco averaged about 1 1/2". No caulking visible at any penetrations, no flashing above windows. Every window had that line of brick above it with no flashing anywhere. It looks like trouble waiting to happen to me.
You’d defintely call this with EIFS, but with three-part shouldn’t they have used a metal weep screed that met the wall, flashed the windows and caulked all penetrations? The builder is going to meet me there in the morning and I want to hear what he has to say. 6000 ft home.
