What information goes into an EIFS Moisture Inspection?

View ReportClick on the document to view an actual EIFS Moisture Inspection report from a reputable Inspector. If you are an EIFS homeowner, seller, or buyer interested in the health of the EIFS cladding system, this report will help you understand various causes of failure in exterior walls and how they are identified.

An EIFS Moisture Inspection must be performed by a Licensed Home Inspector and Certified Moisture Inspector qualified to practice in your municipality. The purpose of the moisture inspection is to help assess the condition of the EIFS system by searching for visible installation flaws, inadequate water diversion, and sealant failures. Electronic moisture testing devices are used. You receive a thorough analysis in an official report from the CMI.
