Terra-Petra Waterproofing Division conducted a forensic waterproofing assessment of historic water intrusion issues at the Palmdale Water District Headquarters Office building located in Palmdale, CA.
Multiple areas of historic moisture intrusion throughout this structure indicated failures at the stucco panels. The PWD Main Office was originally built in 1992 and over the years the existing stucco panels pulled apart from the building creating a safety issue. There are several theories as to why the stucco panels separated from the structure, and we assumed that it was poorly constructed. The District sought an expert to provide an evaluation of material options to replace the existing exterior stucco wall system.
