It is estimated that more than 80% of all stucco applications in the Midwestern United States, within the past 20 to 25 years, are improperly installed. An improperly installed stucco system can lead to leaks, mold, and structural damages. These issues can go undetected for years and cost significant amounts of money to repair.
Holmes Inspection Company provides Certified Stucco Inspections and Stucco Moisture Testing on homes and commercial buildings clad with conventional hardcoat stucco and with EIFS (Exterior Insulating Finish System) building cladding systems.
The professional Holmes Inspection Company inspectors have been trained in stucco / EIFS inspections and moisture analysis by: PITI (Professional Inspection Training Institute); EDI (Exterior Design Institute); AWCI (the Association of Walls and Ceiling Industry); the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) Research Center; and Moisture Warranty Corporation.
We perform our inspections, using as a guideline the general Standards of Practice of the Exterior Design Institute (EDI) and the EIFS Industry Members Association (EIMA).
We know where to look, and what to look for. We pinpoint the moisture content in the underlying substrate. We provide a detailed inspection report including photos, infrared imaging if applicable, moisture mapping, and repair recommendations.
We do NOT perform remediation or repair work. We are not stucco remediation OR installation contractors. We are certified leak detection experts and stucco consultants who provide an unbiased, professional, 3rd party reporting on the condition of the structure and its stucco system.
We acquire endless training and certifications, over 145 hours per year of continuing education.
