Homeowners who are concerned about their stucco may want to proceed with an inspection to reveal possible underlying problems. Part of that inspection includes testing for moisture beneath the surface. If the siding is EIFS, the home will need EIFS moisture testing. A test may not be able to reverse damage, but a properly interpreted moisture test can be a good indication of what to expect underneath your siding.
How Does EIFS Moisture Testing Work?
EIFS moisture testing is a process that should be done if there is any concern of excess of moisture beneath the EIFS exterior of a home. Proper EIFS moisture testing is conducted with a combination of two moisture meters. The first is a non-invasive meter that scans without penetration, and the second is a probe that will penetrate the EIFS and give moisture readings of materials in contact with the probe.
