Did an inspection last week on a new, $2.4 million, all hard coat stucco home. No weep screeds were visible anywhere. Now I’ve been informed that the installer did install weep screeds, but covered them up. The builder said the installer is out there now cutting the stucco to reveal the weep screeds.
House overview and photos of the band where the wall meets the foundation (crawl space).
I’ve been asked to re-inspect this issue later this week. What potential issues with cutting out the weep screed should I look for?
Also, I didn’t see any weep screed where the stucco met the tile roof and I wrote that up also. Please take a look a this photo and let me know what you think.
Finally, if they failed to install weep screeds, how would I verify they have now been installed correctly (that the MRB overlaps the screed)?
All comments are appreciated.
