If your home has some stucco used in its construction, then you may benefit from a stucco inspection (moisture probe test). Basically, this involves one of our inspectors making an initial visual inspection of all the stucco present around your home. They will look for staining, cracks and any other common signs of moisture having penetrated within the material. When moisture gets in and behind the stucco, it can cause damage to the structure.
If signs of moisture are spotted along with vulnerable conditions, the inspector may recommend additional intrusive yet nondestructive methods to identify if moisture has penetrated various portions of the stucco construction in an attempt to determine the level of concern that may or may not exist. This can include drilling small holes and inserting a moisture probe, which gives the inspector critical information. We’ll then fill the hole back up using an elastomeric/acrylic material. While we cannot guarantee a perfect color match, but it will be close and in most cases is not discernible. Upon determining the level of moisture infiltration, if any, the inspector will provide you with a full report and give you the options you have for handling any uncovered issues.
Because of the level of financial investment your home represents, you want to ensure it’s maintained and that any problems with its structure or systems are accurately diagnosed.
