All major manufacturers of EIFS such as, Dryvit, Durabond, Senergy, Sto and DuRock recommend "regular" inspections and maintenance. On their web site Dryvit® Systems, Inc. states "It is important that you inspect your building to see if any problems are developing. However, your visual inspections should not replace the recommended schedule of inspections by a qualified professional"

Our inspection services have been established through knowledge gained from our years of experience, and by utilizing the various standards and protocols developed by other industry experts.

We recommend annual inspections if your home is clad with a “barrier” EIF system. Water-managed or drainage EIF systems and homes clad with cultured stone, stucco or thin brick should also be inspected periodically.

In most cases water intrusion problems are not apparent from a visual inspection of the exterior. However, we have the methods and tools necessary to detect any problems or potential problems.

Once a thorough evaluation of the cladding has been conducted, Stucco Control will provide you with a written report which will detail any problems or maintenance issues that have been discovered as well as specific recommendations for remedial action.

There are three types of EIFS Inspections:

Phase 1: inspections are visually based and non invasive.

Phase 2: inspections are visual and partial invasive using moisture meters.

Phase 3: inspections combine all of the above techniques as well as cutting out damaged wall areas.
