Home buyer's Stucco Inspection
Stucco Inspections for Home Buyers
It’s important to choose the right inspector. Building scientists, engineers and architects have discovered that the stucco installed in the northeastern United States which was installed prior to 2013 has a remarkable high failure rate. The major concern is rot of the wood sheathing and framing behind the stucco which was inadequately protected from moisture through errors in the construction process. This is why you need a professional stucco inspection before you buy a property clad with stucco.
