What type of stucco do you have? It is important for us to know what type of stucco you have because of the "rules" for each type of stucco. For example, "EIFS", Exterior Insulating Finish System" or "Stryo-foam" installations must use trade association or manufacturer's installation recommendations. During your inspection, we can determine for you what type of stucco you have. We are certified for EIFS system inspections.
What about stone? Cast stone is a man-made product that is installed on top of the first layer called "scratch coat". The stone is "buttered", then stuck to the wall. Sometimes it is grouted, most times not. We have found this product to leak extensively . During an inspection we will test cast stone the same way we test stucco.
