Wow. That is a product you do not want to be taking shortcuts with. There's a house a few blocks over with Dryvit, and it's leaking like crazy.

Dryvit is a brand name. They have many different products and systems, and somewhere someone has surely installed it over stone. And it probably failed.

For most of their systems, you have to be a certified installer to buy it.

Definitely not for wet climates. I’ve torn off three houses of it so far. What a mess.

I did a bunch of research on Dryvit for my BIL in Buffalo...

On those houses you tore off, did they have the correct rain screen and drainage planes?

I have no idea, I got the jobs from a GC and was just there to get it done. All three were built by the same builder though.

We were replacing rot everywhere. All sides of windows, headers, corners, roof to walls.

All of them were only 4-5 years old

Two of them were front row on the ocean the other was about a block in.

I have no idea who did the installs or if they did it correct. I don’t know the certified way to install the stuff and from my view don‘t care to learn.

From what I learned, the key to that system is in the drainage plane. Since it was the same builder, I'd bet they used the same details... or lack of details.
