Monolithic cladding systems are high risk for leaking. Some of the reasons why the houses with monolithic cladding become leaky house can be:

These problems will cause the inadequate deflection and drainage of water and start create leaky home syndrome. There are different types of monolithic cladding. Most comment one are EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems)This cladding utilises polystyrene boards with a plaster and paint finish. Texture coated fibre cement made from cement, fine sand and cellulose, with a textured coating applied and painted after the sheets have been installed. Stucco, which is cement-based plaster, applied over a variety of backings including fibre-cement and plywood sheeting, before being painted.
