What kind of stucco is it. Buyers wants stucco inspection in Hobbs NM.

At Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico.

We get all kinds of calls for all kinds of inspections and questions.

This call was for a stucco inspection that is all the buyers wanted. The buyers asked if I could inspect the home to see what kind of stucco the home had on the exterior of the home.

Not a problem I told them. I wanted to know of theywanted to get a full home inspection.

They told me no the home has already been inspected.

REALLY!

My next question was "Why the home inspector did not state in the report what kind of exterior stucco was on the home".

The buyers told me that the home inspectors in the Hobbs area will not inspect the exterior stucco. They calim the liability is too great.

Seems I have heard this old song and dance before.

If you have a home insection Company, then why not inspect everything on a home. Why have the buyers or Realtors have to call a roofer for a roofing inspection?

An electrician for an electrical inspection.

A plumber for a plumbing inspection.

A heating and cooling conractor for the heating and cooling systems inspection on a home?

This seems to becoming a trend I don't care for.

Do I offer too much?

Or should I fall in line and not inspect what the "Other inspectors don't inspect at all"?

I feel a home is a home and it should be fully inspected by the home inspector when on site.

Just my honest opinion.

Other inspectors can do what they do, so will I.

Getting back to the stucco inspection. The home doe;s have a cement three system stucco.

The buyers were really happy.

Hi Jay,

Other than  Desert Sun Home Inspections. I know of no other home inspection company around here that offers a full service home inspection. Sad but true.

Have a great Christmas season in Bristow my friend.

Hi Raymond.

That is my thinking. But most companies that do offer inspection services are not certified. I bet their insurance will not cover a lot of things if they have insurance.

Have a very good Christmas in Rochester, New York.

Hi Ginny,

That's the catch.The additional inspections do cost. All of the inspections like the roof, electrical etc, they all charge for coming out to inspect their expertise.

Enjoy Christmas in North Kingstown.

Hi Dorie,

I think you hit the nail on the head. Limited knowledge is the key. A certified inspector should have known what kind of stucco it is. Simple to determine what kind it is.

Have a great Christmas day in Canyon Creek Texas.

Hi Mr. Bond,

So true. Way too many companies want to pass on the responsibility to someone else.

Hi Joan,

I was told the inspector told the buyers he will not inspect the stucco.

That's why I got the call.

Have a nice Christmas in Denver.

Hello Adrian.

I would hope that's why they call me for any inspection they need. Realtors need to realize one and done is a lot better.

Have a very Merry Christmas in Seattle my friend.

Hi Conrad,

In many cases the inspector wants to cover their own rear. This is why they call for an expert to come in and render their opinion.

Enjoy the Christmas season in Webster my good friend.

Clint, we don't see many stucco homes in the northeast, especially in Vermont.  In fact, in 25 years of real estate I have never sold a stucco home, although I have seen a few.  I did not know that there were different kinds of stucco.

Regarding inspectors - in our area they inspect everything.  Some will even make minor repairs or adjustments while they are there!

Hi Lisa,

I inspect everything except for termites. The cement stucco that this home has is very common here in New Mexico.

Have a great day in Vermont.

Hi Bob,

The West has a lot of stuccoed homes. This needs to be inspected the correct way and not deferred each time a home is inspected.

Have a great year end in Vegas my friend.

Have a great day in Carlsbad!

Hi Rob,

Cement stucco type is a really good way of protecting the home. But the EIFS application has issues that need to be monitored all the time. Not good.

Have a great year end in Bristol my friend.

Hi Michelle,

The "Other inspector" would not inspect the homes stucco. I think they didn't want any liability with the homes exterior.

 Simple inspection the home has a cement stucco and osb style trim and soffit.

Have a great day and New Year in San Jose.
