Below is a video of just one example why every home with stucco should be inspected by a certified stucco inspector such as us:
After your home inspection, there is often times a contractor that follows up with consultation and repairs. But what if there is a difference of opinion on the contractor? Watch this short video to see what to do:
Do you need a stucco inspection in Orlando? Most people don't even think about that question, but if you have stucco on your home you can have some of the most expensive defects hiding below that stucco.
Does a home inspection cover stucco? To a very limited degree it does. Some stucco aspects can be inspected. For example weep screeds, head flashing, visible expansion joints, and the very important kick out flashing.
But there are issues that hide under stucco and in certain areas that need a certified stucco inspector to find. Moisture that gets behind stucco has very little ability to escape if the stucco was not done properly - or even if it was. This can cause unseen moisture damage and mold. Repairs from a stucco failure can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Certified Stucco Inspector in Orlando, Winter Garden, Clermont and surrounding areas
Problems with EIFS/Stucco on residential and commercial buildings are prolific throughout Central Florida. After encountering many buildings with poor stucco applications during home inspections, Mike began researching specialized stucco inspectors in the local area to recommend to buyers. Through research, it was discovered that Exterior Design Institute, the leading organization for stucco inspectors, did not have any qualified inspectors in Central Florida. Therefore, Mike enrolled in and completed EDI's extensive training program.
Mike's main objective in earning EDI's Certification in EIFS/Stucco Inspections and Moisture Analysis, is to protect homebuyers that are making such large purchases. A home inspector may spot problems during a home inspection, but an EDI Certified Stucco Inspector understands the science behind the problem. Operating on a specific Standards of Practice, a Certified Stucco Inspector can provide much more detail so that the scope of the problem can be understood.
Imagine working on your home to get it ready for sale. You paint, you clean, and you make upgrades. You do all of this, only to find out that the buyer's home inspector has found an issue that you didn't even know about. Now, your sale is in jeopardy.
All of this can be avoided by having a pre-listing home inspection. A pre-listing home inspection lets you find out about these issues ahead of time, and fix them before a buyer is involved. Contact us today, and we will be happy to schedule YOUR pre-listing home inspection
