If you are purchasing or already own a home in Florida, there is a strong possibility it has a stucco exterior. It is important to have an inspection by an experienced professional, who is certified by the Exterior Design Institute (EDI) as a stucco inspector in the state of Florida. Stucco is a beautiful and durable material that is common throughout Florida however, if not installed properly, it can have a number of issues which can be expensive to repair and can cause structural damage.
Moisture can penetrate into the walls and affect the window and door frames, damage stud framing, allow mold growth in wall cavities, damage insulation and interior sheetrock.
A stucco inspection can reveal issues like missing flashing, inadequate or missing sealants, excessive cracking, missing or blocked drainage accessories, improperly applied material and other problems that can lead to moisture related damage.
