Key responsibilities and tasks of a stucco inspector include

Visual Inspections: Conducting visual inspections of the stucco finish to identify any visible defects, cracks, or areas of concern. This includes examining the stucco surface for signs of water damage, mold growth, or other issues.
Moisture Testing: Using moisture meters and other specialized tools to assess the moisture levels within the stucco system and the underlying substrate. High moisture levels can indicate potential water intrusion problems.

Substrate Evaluation / Stucco Invasive Report: Evaluating the condition of the substrate (such as wood, plywood, or sheathing) beneath the stucco to ensure it is structurally sound and appropriate for stucco installation.

Flashing and Sealant Inspection: Checking the installation of flashing, sealants, and weatherproofing components around windows, doors, and other penetrations to ensure they are correctly installed and effectively prevent moisture intrusion.
Code Compliance: Verifying that the stucco system complies with local building codes, regulations, and industry standards.

Documentation Review: Reviewing construction documentation, including permits and architectural plans, to ensure that the stucco installation adheres to approved specifications.

Report Generation: Compiling inspection findings into a detailed report that outlines any identified issues, defects, or areas requiring attention. The report may also include recommendations for repairs or remediation.

Consultation: Providing consultation and guidance to property owners, builders, contractors, or other stakeholders on how to address stucco-related problems and improve the performance and durability of the stucco system.

Recommendations: Recommending necessary repairs, maintenance, or modifications to address identified issues and prevent further damage to the stucco or underlying structure.

Stucco inspectors work as part of the client, buyer, seller or agent. They play a crucial role in ensuring the long-term durability and weather resistance of stucco-clad buildings and can help property owners make informed decisions regarding stucco maintenance and repairs.
