Inspecting Stucco or EIFS is much different than a normal home inspection.  In order to properly perform an inspection of Synthetic Stucco or EIFS the inspector should undergo an extensive training program to understand the differences between Synthetic Stucco and other types of veneers.  Because of this there are only a handful of Stucco Inspectors in the Greater Charlotte, NC and York County, SC area.

 

Inspector Paul is proud of the fact that he is the only Synthetic Stucco inspector that is also a:

NC Licensed General Contractor

NC and SC Licensed Home Inspector

Member of ASHI-American Society of Home Inspectors

Member of NCLHIA-North Carolina Licensed Home Inspectors Association

Member of PAHI-Piedmont Association of Home Inspectors

DOES NOT PERFORM REPAIRS ON HOMES HE INSPECTS

DOES NOT OFFER HIS OWN STUCCO WARRANTIES

 

Why is it important that my stucco inspector not do any repair work?

  • If your inspector offers to make any repairs on his findings how can you be sure the findings are honest?
  • If you hire the inspector to perform the repair work, who can you hire to review the repair work and make sure that everything was repaired and repaired properly?
  • The American Society of Home Inspectors-the nations largest, oldest, and most respected Society of Home Inspectors requires that all members do not perform repairs on homes they inspect.  This is because it is a conflict of interest and there is the potential for the client or home buyer to get taken advantage of if the inspector / repair contractor is unethical.

Why is it important that my stucco inspector not offer his own warranties?

  • If you choose to have a stucco warranty, you’ll also want to have interim inspections to be sure that everything is fine. 
  • If the person who inspected your home offered the warranty directly he will insist on doing the interim inspections. 
  • If he finds out that damage has occurred during an interim inspection it will cost him money out of his own pocket to repair the damage, so he may be hesitant to disclose that he found damage.

If you interested in obtaining a Stucco Warranty, Inspector Paul follows the inspection protocol of the nation’s largest stucco insurer and his reports are accepted for review and possible warranty coverage.  With this solution you can feel safe that your warranty company will not disappear, you can feel secure that your interim and post repair inspections will be through and honest.  Warranties are written by Moisture Warranty Corporation.
