The Importance Of Moisture Reports

Professional EIFS and stucco inspectors recommend that your stucco should be inspected every two years and also undergo specialist moisture testing to ensure that water has not compromised its structural integrity. If you are worried that there may be underlying problems within your stucco, EIFS, stone or vinyl stucco, then contact a specialist to arrange for a professional EIFS inspection or stucco Inspection. Our inspections include specific stucco moisture testing. Moisture reports can reveal if there is water damage, rot, or mold growing behind the stucco or other siding. All of these lead to significant damage if not treated correctly.
