WHAT IS STUCCO AND EIFS?

  • Stucco is a cement plaster wall covering found on Mediterranean, Contemporary, and Southwest style homes.
  • EIFS (Exterior Insulation & Finish System) is foam-backed wall covering with a similar appearance to traditional stucco. It is sometimes referred to as “synthetic stucco.”

Why do you need a stucco inspection?

  • Some stucco systems have had a history of problems with regard to moisture, deterioration, rot, and mold.
  • Moisture behind the walls can be lurking where it's least expected and can be completely invisible to the naked eye.
  • Fixing bad stucco is expensive. Remediation can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000.
  • Find out if your stucco house has moisture problems before you buy.
  • We’ll identify appearance, installation, and moisture issues with your stucco system.
  • And, we’ll provide recommendations to keep your stucco house in tip-top shape, which will preserve the home’s value. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
