Hi all, new student here. I’m reading the section on Stucco and EIFS, and it states the following:
When the siding appears to be stucco, it may not be enough for many inspectors to simply identify the covering as “stucco.” You may decide that it is in the best interests of your client to know what type (or types) of stucco is installed on the house, and to correctly identify whether the cladding is EIFS.
I’m wondering, how do you determine the type of stucco without doing a destructive inspection? How is it possible to detail the installed layers without destroying a portion of the wall covering? Do you see a demand/need to actually identify the type of stucco?
