As has been widely reported, defective stucco installation is an epidemic in the Delaware Valley.  The losses a homeowner can sustain from a defective installed stucco, brick, or siding system – or “building envelope” – can be devastating.   Wally Zimolong has recovered over $1,400,000 for homeowners, homeowners and condominium associations, and subcontractors involved with stucco defect litigation.  Examples of Wally’s success in this area include the following settlements:

Six figure settlement for 50+ apartment complex in Philadelphia.  This four (4) story 20,000 square feet apartment building was clad with stucco and brick.  The property was under agreement for approximately $12,000,000 when defects in the brick facade and stucco were discovered by the potential buyer.  This caused the buyer to back out of the deal.  Before the start of any extension discovery, the defendants agreed to confidential settlement.


$425,000 settlement for 10 Unit Complex in Fishtown. This ten unit development had severe stucco defects on the front and rear facades.  The roofs also leaked.  In addition to recovering payment for the damaged homeowners, the developers agreed to pay attorneys and costs of nearly $100,000.


$466,000 settlement for HOA of 100 Unit Complex in South Philadelphia.  This multi-unit development contained severe stucco defects that had caused the plywood sheathing to completely rot away.


$86,000 settlement for owners of 3 story luxury town home in South Philadelphia.  The front and rear facades of this home were clad in stucco.  The leaks were so severe that mushrooms grew on the interior window sills.  Case settled for $86,000.


$22,000 settlement for owners of single family home in Bensalem, PA.  Unlike many of the defect cases we see, this home was clad with vinyl siding.  Home with vinyl siding can be just as prone to water infiltration than home clad with stucco.  However, vinyl sided homes can sometimes be “spot remediated” without removing the entire facade.  Case settled for $22,000.


$539,920.71 consent judgment for owners of single family home in Cherry Hill, NJ.  Unlike some stucco defect cases where the true extent of the damage lay hidden, the stucco on this home was so defective that it began to ripple in a wave like fashion.  A few days before trial, the defendants agreed to a consent judgment in the amount of $539,920.71.


$550,000 settlement for stucco remediation contractor. In this case, a stucco remediation contractor engaged Wally to recover money owned to it by the national home builder K. Hovnanian Homes.  The client had remediated the defective stucco work performed by another contractor and then was not paid by Hovnanian.   The builder tried to claim that the client’s remediation work was also defective.  These claims were completely refuted and the case settled before trial.
