Why should I get a stucco inspection - Stucco Testing Specialists Stucco Inspections Malvern PA

Why should I get a stucco inspection?

A professional stucco inspection, carried out by a certified stucco inspector, is extremely important to know the health of your stucco facade.

Unfortunately, for a number of years, local and state building codes were written incorrectly.  This led to many stucco installations being applied with incorrect details such as missing or reversed flashing, no expansion joints, and probably the most important, no drainage plain to allow moisture to escape from the stucco.  These are not the only things that can be wrong with your stucco application, but they are the most common errors that our inspectors come across on a regular basis.

If your stucco application has some or all of these errors/omissions, this can lead to catastrophic damage to the internal structure of your home.  Gone unchecked, hidden damage can, and often does, cost tens of thousands of dollars to carry out the required repairs.  A professional stucco inspection will give you the information you need, in order to know if your stucco facade is correctly installed, or if you have systemic failures that could be causing massive hidden damage.

Forewarned is forearmed, so don’t be left wondering and worrying, get a professional stucco inspection carried out and put your mind (and potential buyers) at ease with a comprehensive stucco inspection report.
