Inspected 53 year old home that had stucco exterior but did not see weep screed anywhere around home. Dug down about 6 inches in a couple planters and could not find the end of the stucco. While in the crawl space, I noted that the foundation is poured so that the sill plate is at least 24" above the outside grade and dry and hard as a bone. Almost 36" of head space made it the easiest crawl space I’ve been in.
This is one of the nicest stucco jobs I have seen. Not a single crack or patch job. No bubbling or water damage noted at the planters all around the house. But the concern as always is moisture wicking. With the sill plate being so high above grade, how would you suggest I write this up?
I have a couple days to turn in report. Lucky stiffs left for a Carribean vacation for New Years.
