|Some building have water funnels built in by design.||This stucco has been patched umpteen times over the years, and it still needs to be patched.|
|The problem here is that
water is getting in the first and second story
windows, and deteriorating the plaster.
A simple kick-out flashing diverting water into the gutter would avoid this problem forever. Maybe we'll
fix it one day.
The point I am making here is that the water funnel is both the cause of the inside leak and the stucco failing, and that the stucco failing isn't the cause of the water inside.
