This is all well and good, but what about a "stucco" wall? My house has a one story addition that fills in two 2 story exterior walls. The exterior walls are stucco. The addition is clad with exterior panelling and topped with a asphalt shingle. Where the asphalt roof meets the stucco a continuous flashing was installed. The flashing is butted up against the stucco and chalked. It appears to be leaking there. Water enters the addition over a what used to be an exterior patio door. The stucco is very thin with a "styro-foam" insulation under it and then 4x8 plywood/mdf(?). What can I do to fix this situation or should I tear off the old roof, (less than 6 years old), and cut into the stucco and install a "weep screed"? Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
