Invasive Moisture Testing
Our inspections always begin with a visual evaluation of a property's exterior components—but that will seldom suffice for determining the scope of potential moisture penetration & related issues. Invasive Moisture Testing allows us to measure the amount of moisture present within the substrate to locate areas of moisture penetration.To do this, we drill 2 small holes into the stucco/brick/stone an inch apart and insert a Delmhorst Moisture Probe Meter to get an accurate reading of the moisture levels beneath. The holes are immediately filled with sealant and are virtually undetectable—causing no harm to the building.
We truly believe, without a doubt, that an invasive inspection is the most effective way to test for water penetration & hidden damage. During our inspections, the main focus is determining if the stucco system has experienced any water penetration, if so how much? It's important to find the source and evaluate what damage, if any, has occurred.
