Stucco, an exterior siding material prized for its durability and aesthetic appeal, is commonly used in many homes. However, it is not immune to problems such as moisture intrusion and structural damages if improperly installed or maintained. Therefore, stucco inspections and testing are crucial services that many homeowners rely on to ensure the longevity and health of their stucco applications.
Professional Stucco Inspection
A professional stucco inspector provides specialized stucco inspection services that go beyond a typical home inspection. These professionals are equipped with the knowledge and tools to identify potential stucco problems that general contractors or standard home inspectors might overlook.
Visual Stucco Inspection
The stucco inspection process begins with a visual inspection of the stucco home. During this stage, the inspector examines the stucco and its surrounding area for signs of damage or improper installation, such as cracks or discoloration in the stucco. This visual inspection is a crucial first step as it helps identify any evident issues that could affect the integrity of the stucco application.
Infrared Stucco Inspection
Following the visual assessment, a more thorough investigation is conducted using specialized tools like a thermal imaging camera. This can lead the inspector to hidden areas of trapped moisture but is not a method to identify rotted or wet substrate.
Invasive Stucco Testing
The inspector drills small holes into the stucco and inserts the moisture probe to detect any hidden moisture. Moisture intrusion is a common issue with stucco, particularly if it has been improperly installed. If left undetected, it can lead to further structural damages..
Stucco inspections are vital for any stucco home as they help identify potential issues before they become significant and costly problems. Early detection of moisture intrusion, for example, can prevent expensive repairs and protect homeowners from the potential health risks associated with mold and mildew growth.
Stucco Inspection Report
Upon completion of the inspection, the inspector provides a detailed report outlining their findings. This report can serve as a guide for homeowners to understand the condition of their stucco and what actions, if any, need to be taken.
Professional stucco inspection and testing are essential services for the upkeep and maintenance of a stucco home. These inspections help ensure the durability and integrity of the stucco, ultimately protecting the house and its occupants.
