EIFS Stucco Inspections | Certified Home Inspections Passaic County NJ
ASM Inspection Services is a certified EIFS Stucco System Inspector and the Passaic County and Northern NJ leader for experienced EIFS Stucco Inspection services. Our stucco inspections offer Infrared Camera Sevice, which helps our inspector see the differences within the average home that simply cannot be seen by the naked eye. We can identify issues like the potential for water leaks, electrical hazards, or heat efficiency issues that may not yet amount to structural damage or health risk, but that is likely.
One of the biggest benefits of stucco is that it can help make your home more energy-efficient. However, if a stucco exterior is poorly installed or not maintained properly, several serious issues can arise. The most serious problem stems from water-related issues—specifically, excess moisture that becomes trapped in your home. We can perform Independent Third Party Inspections for New Construction, Retrofits, and Remedial EIFS/Stucco Projects. We provide these services for both Commercial and Residential properties. And ASM Inspection Services uses the most up-to-date techniques and equipment (i.e. Infrared Camera) to ensure that clients are thoroughly educated in these exterior claddings.
Consider a stucco inspection to protect your property investment! Only a licensed professional stucco inspector will be able to truly tell if your home, property, or building has a problem. Here is an overview of what this inspection may include:
Visual Stucco Inspection Service
The first level of a certified Stucco Inspection is observational only. We record what can be visually observed in detailed notes that can then be used to correct any issues. We can also make recommendations for specific solutions.
Moisture Stucco Inspection Service
A moisture probe involves drilling 3/16” holes into the stucco at strategic locations and then inserting a moisture probe into the wall to measure moisture content. This is an accurate and reliable method for determining if there are any water problems.
The inspector drills several holes side by side for an invasive moisture test. He or she then inserts a probe into the wall in order to check for moisture behind cladding using a special meter. This is one of the most accurate methods used to determine if water is present or has caused water damage.
Thermal Imaging Stucco Inspection
Thermal imaging cameras are a tool to detect water entry areas and heat signatures. They can give varying degrees of accuracy and aren’t to be the final judge for stucco mold problems. We will utilize them, but do not rely solely on them. More a useful backup for proof used in all stucco mold inspection reports.
