Stucco Inspections Washington DC

Stucco is a very popular exterior cladding system used on homes throughout the United States. Due to the extreme temperature differentials in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, it is important to have the stucco inspected prior to buying or selling a home.

At Donofrio & Associates, LLC., we conduct Stucco Inspections to determine if there are current or potential problems in the design or installation. Many Stucco homes have been built using sub-standard processes resulting in moisture build-up in exterior walls. When overlooked, this moisture can lead to penetration into the home as well as mold in the walls.

Our Stucco Inspections include the following:

Step 1: Visual Inspection

The first step is conducting a visual inspection of the exterior cladding system to determine if there are any installation defects or oversights that can present problems such as moisture intrusion. We check for any cracks, gaps, chips or peeling of the stucco.

 

Step 2: Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection

The second step in the process of evaluating the condition of stucco cladding is to conduct an infrared thermal imaging screening focusing on problem areas that were identified during the visual inspection. Infrared Thermal Imaging allows for us to see areas where there are temperature variations on the surface that are caused by trapped moisture behind the stucco cladding.

 

Step 3: Moisture Meter Readings

The third step in the process is to conduct moisture meter readings in areas where infrared thermal imaging has identified areas of high moisture
