The Drain Screed is a key component of the AMICO HYDRODRY® system. This revolutionary system expels moisture from behind the cladding in two ways to prevent damaging mold and mildew buildup. A vent at the top of the system allows for evaporated water to escape, while the Drain Screed at the bottom flushes out excess liquid. AMICO also utilized Denis’ knowledge and drive to deliver high-quality products by asking him to stay on as a consultant throughout the project.

What Our Clients Say

Friel Plastering & Stucco Client Testimonials
  • Friel Plastering & Stucco remediated and replaced the stucco on two sides of our home after high levels of moisture were found from an invasive stucco test. We interviewed 5 other stucco remediation companies in the area and I am very pleased that Friel was the company to complete our project. Having to remediate stucco is not a welcomed home project for home owners, but the Friel Team made it a seamless and transparent one. From proposal to job completion, the communication was clear and consistent. Every person who worked on our home was courteous and professional and seemed truly invested and committed to the work they were doing. Our house looks great and I'm confident that the work was done to current codes, with quality workmanship and using the most up-to-date drainage system. I highly recommend Friel to anyone needing to remediate the stucco on their home.

  • We hired Denis Friel, of Friel Plastering and Stucco to fix a problem with stucco on a home that we purchased in Philadelphia. His understanding of our problem, his positive energy and his fair quote allowed us to move forward with confidence. He was very accommodating to our schedule, his team was professional, he supervised the work along the way and their attention to detail was exacting. Although the weather didn't always cooperate, he and his team kept a positive attitude. They made some suggestions for improvements based on their knowledge and experience and we are beyond happy with the outcome. We would recommend Denis and his team at Friel Plastering and Stucco without hesitation.

  • Denis Friel Plastering and Stucco is great, professional and a nice man too! He pays attention to details and does a fantastic job. He quoted us and came in on budget and on time. Two of the three sides of our townhouse required remediation from a stucco inspection to enable us to sell the house. Denis was there to help us! His quote was in-line with others and his work was excellent also giving us a warranty on his work. We just got an offer to purchase the townhouse! Thanks Denis and Team Friel Plastering!

  • Friel Plastering & Stucco, by far, was the best experience we've ever encountered during a renovation project. Their attention to detail, craftsmanship, recommendations and approach was nothing less than 'world class'. I don't write many reviews for any company experience, but I couldn't pass on writing this review. Most times, I'm having to keep a close eye on any crew we may have hired for a project to ensure they clean up after themselves at the end of their work day.
