Why Do I Need a Stucco Inspection?
The exterior stucco on homes in the Atlanta area is either hardcoat or synthetic. Both types of stucco have the ability to retain water and cause moisture levels to be 30% or higher beneath the surface of the stucco. Synthetic stucco experiences more problems than hardcoat due to consistent improper installation by synthetic stucco installers, but it is vitally important to moisture test both types of stucco during a real estate transaction. With a Stucco Inspection from RIA, you’ll have the knowledge and protection you need to confidently buy the home you want.
Our Stucco & EIFS Inspection Process
1. Our stucco inspectors use moisture scanners and probe meters to determine the moisture level present beneath the surface of the exterior.
2. Our inspectors will note installation errors, missing flashing, missing caulking, moisture entry areas, etc.
3. Our inspectors can instruct you on how to maintain and care for your stucco as well.
4. You will receive a detailed inspection report noting all of the inspectors findings and moisture readings, pictures of areas of concerns, and a summary of repair items.
The stucco inspectors at RIA review all areas of concern at the time of inspection. You will then receive an email to a digital report on the same day as the inspection that includes the detailed information below:
Windows, caulking, flashing, and other pertinent information pertaining to stucco
Digital photos of high moisture levels and areas of concern
