Stucco Inspections for Home Buyers
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.
A stucco remediation can run in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, so this inspection is the most important one you will buy. When you hire Stucco Safe you have a professional who will independently evaluate the stucco and document any failures or construction defects. We then provide you with a detailed and extensive report that will help you negotiate the proper repairs to the property. In some cases, there are no problems found, and in this case you will have peace of mind that you are buying a home and not a project.
