BUYING A STUCCO HOME - this could be the most important inspection you do, as most stucco homes are not properly tested for moisture and WOOD ROT damage. The right equipment and experience is everything.
STUCCO INSPECTIONS OPTIONS - Full Protocol, Advanced Protocol or Basic Protocol. The cost of moisture damaged wood substrate repairs on a 3000 sft home can average $15, 000. and up, with larger houses the cost is much much more ! The cost of testing and inspection is miniscule compared to repair cost, it is not worth the risk of passing up this most important inspection. Home Inspections do not include wood rot and moisture probe testing. It is a extra cost when buying a home, but as my customers have told me "that inspection was worth every penny".
LEAK TESTING - Finding the cause of a leak can be flustrating and difficult. Often expensive repairs have to be performed all over again because the leak was not properly diagnosed. Proper leak testing and a understanding how moisture barriers work is everything .
Test Equipment - We use Delmhorst, Tramex, and Flir Infrared cameras, Magnehelic testing equipment and more. But the greatest tool for testing and diagnostics is our years of experience.

Patrick, I have read over your report. It was very understandable and well written. As a lawyer who reads a lot of reports of various types, including a lot of expert reports and technical reports, yours is excellent. It was easy to follow and your use of photos and arrows and codes and colors was darn helpful. Just thought you should know.
