Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) is an exterior wall cladding system that consists of several materials and installation steps. When this material is improperly installed, improperly flashed or becomes damaged, complications can arise. “Dryvit” or “Stucco Flex” are the more commonly named products used for the application of this exterior surface.
We conduct our inspections with specialized moisture detection equipment and probes which allow readings of moisture below the surface. The comprehensive report includes several photos of any damaged areas or those areas in need of repair. Since it can sometimes be difficult for the average homeowner/buyer to determine the exact type of exterior, we also conduct inspections to confirm or deny the presence of EIFS.
