Invasive Stucco Inspections

An invasive stucco inspection is a process in which the exterior stucco of a building is partially removed to assess the moisture content and inspect for hidden damage. This type of inspection provides a more thorough and accurate assessment of the building's condition compared to a standard non-invasive inspection.

Visual Stucco Inspections

A non-invasive visual stucco inspection involves examining the exterior stucco of a building without causing damage or drilling into the material. The inspector will typically look for cracks, discoloration, or other signs of damage that could indicate a more significant issue such as water damage or mold growth.

Phased Repair Inspections

A phase repair inspection is an assessment of a building or property that breaks down the inspection process into phases. Each phase of the inspection deals with specific parts of the building, such as roofing, windows, foundation, and electrical systems. This inspection helps identify the condition of each phase and the recommended repairs to be conducted.
