Are you planning to complete a real estate transaction soon as either the buyer or seller of a stucco home? Or, perhaps you have observed an issue with your stucco home. Either of these scenarios would warrant a stucco inspection, and you don’t need to look any further than Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company to get that crossed off your list. We’ll review three important discoveries that your stucco inspection might uncover that need immediate attention.

Stucco Inspection

1. Cracking and Structural Issues

One small crack in your stucco might not necessarily indicate a larger problem, but be aware if you notice cracks beginning to form. This commonly happens around areas of surface penetration that are sealed with caulk. Our seasoned stucco inspectors will be able to determine what type of repair work your stucco requires and whether you have a structural issue that needs to be resolved.

2. Water Damage and Moisture Intrusion 

One of the most common issues with stucco is water intrusion and the resulting damage. Stucco is durable, but you must protect your investment by properly caring for it. You should thoroughly inspect your home twice a year and contact an expert immediately to inspect and remediate any issues you find professionally. Also, a certified inspector will be able to detect subtle signs of moisture intrusion that you might miss.

3. Improper Installation or Previous Repairs

Applying stucco requires exact measurements that will vary depending on the color and texture you choose and your climate. If any part of the mixing or application is slightly off, you may get cracking or dilapidation. Neither stucco installation nor repairs are something that you should entrust to the lowest bidder. An expert with proven experience must complete this type of work.
