Best Eifs Inspection & Stucco Inspection Chicago - Who We Are

Danny Boy Consulting was established in 2021 but it wasn’t my first contact with stucco business.

I’m running a very successful Company (Stucco & Beyond Inc) which installs stucco, EIFS and stone claddings for years. But while doing estimates I kept seeing  older houses repaired recently with reoccurring stucco problems or new construction homes that fail within few years.  I wanted to know what was causing these problems and the possible solution to them. So, it was back to the books, seminars, and even Exterior Design Institute to learn how to be a certified EIFS inspector Chicago.  From that Danny Boy Consulting was born.

We are independent, third-party EIFs inspectors Chicago, stucco inspectors Chicago, and stucco testing specialists that provide a detailed report with solutions on how to fix the issues so the homeowners won’t have to guess and will have the right instructions the first time. Our goal? Make our clients happy with our services. Let us help you start feeling safe about your home!

Why Stucco Inspection Is Important?

Over the past 30 years, stucco has been incorrectly installed on many houses, by inexperienced, poorly trained contractors. Many cases of serious water damage resulted because of the leaching of water through the stucco and into the houses. Now a stucco inspection is essential by a qualified stucco inspector if you are installing stucco, or are buying a house with stucco installed.

Stucco systems are now required to have flashing, a drainage plane to allow water movement from the stucco, and expansion and contraction joints, amongst other things. Many past installations were missing some, or all, of these things. Consequently, moisture entered and became trapped behind the stucco and then passed into the sheathing and wood framing of the houses. This caused serious water damage that had very hefty repair costs, in the region of tens of thousands of dollars.

If you are purchasing a property with stucco, it is imperative to have an EIFS stucco inspection, performed by a certified, experienced ElFS Inspector Glenview based. By having stucco testing specialists and stucco testing you can determine if there are any problems or potential problems that will need repairs and will result in hefty repair bills to be paid.
