HOME & STUCCO INSPECTIONS
Home & Stucco Inspections of Georgia has been providing professional, meaningful inspections, including residential and commercial building, stucco, stone, and mold inspections since 2001. What sets us apart is our unique expertise and experience in:
Mold remediation and testing in Athens ,GA
Court-approved Dryvit Inspector involved early on with EIFS MoistureFree Warranty Research and Development to remediate and place stucco warranties on defective EIFS homes
Hands-on experience with stucco construction and repair
Extensive experience in moisture intrusion detection that can only come from probing, test cutting, and following up on thousands of EIFS and stucco homes across the southeast including Athens, Valdosta, Douglas, Hilton Head, Savannah, Lake Oconee, Atlanta, Anderson, Greenville, Spartanburg, Clemson, and beyond.
Hands-on home construction experience having been a Builder of residential homes
Extensive experience that can only be gained from conducting thousands of home, stucco, EIFS, mold, and commercial inspections spanning 17 years.
Beware of unscrupulous stucco contractors in Athens Georgia who also conduct stucco inspections, especially if not EDI, AWCI, and/or Moisture Warranty certified; many of these Athens stucco contractors are not professionally trained and make a lot of money by presenting a list of unnecessary repairs to the unknowing client, preying on the fears associated with stigma of stucco, all while often missing key areas that actually do need to be addressed.
We never have a vested interest in finding problems with the home that do not truly need repaired and we are trained to zero-in on the area or areas needing repair, not making "blanket-type" statements like, "this stucco needs to be torn off and redone," or "this entire home needs to be skim-coated." We will help guide you to professional stucco contractors with proven track records in Athens, Atlanta, or Valdosta who we know and have received positive results from referring. See our Testimonials below to see the many praises we've received over the years from our grateful clients across Georgia and South Carolina.

"I am fortunate to have found Home and Stucco Inspections of Georgia and the expertise of David Smith. I was considering the purchase of a home in southern South Carolina but had received conflicting reports from the initial home inspector and an independent stucco inspector. I called David who asked me to send him the report with pictures. However, the quality of the pictures was of such a nature that it was impossible to determine with any definitiveness if a problem truly existed. David drove from his Athens, Georgia office to the home under consideration and "left no stone unturned." He meticulously spent hours inspecting inside and outside the house taking core samples as needed. On his way home, he called me giving a thorough explanation of his inspection and conclusion. That same night I received the paper copy. After being in the house for a couple of months I called David and described what I thought might be a problem. David came back within a few weeks, examined the area and explained that what I had noticed was a non-problematic weep screed. David is so friendly, thorough and responsive. His thoroughness gave me the peace of mind to make a purchase decision. I have recommended him to others knowing they will get a top notch inspection

-Sylvia Hutton, Realtor
Coldwell Banker, Valdosta
"David provided an accurate, detailed analysis on a stucco home we were considering purchasing. When others, including our home inspector, did not feel comfortable commenting on the condition of the stucco, his thorough inspection and report gave us the information we needed to make one of the most important decisions of our lives. He kept in touch withus while we drove six hours to meet him and waited for an hour for us to arrive so he could explain his findings to us in person. He knew this was a big purchase for us and took his time in providing expert detailed information on his findings, which actually saved us thousands of dollars because of necessary repairs that could not be seen with the naked eye. He also conducted a mold test for us as to the home's air quality. We greatly appreciated him taking his time to answer all of our questions. We highly recommend David's services to anyone purchasing a stucco home in view of all the problems that many have experienced because of improper installation of the product. My husband is an engineer and was so impressed with David's detailed report that provided a section by section review of the entire exterior of the home. His credentials in this area are quite impressive! I can confidently say that before we buy a stucco home, we will have an inspection by David."

"I have worked with David many times over the past 10+ years. His attention to detail and understanding of structural issues have proven his worth many times over each time that I have hired him to inspect properties. I have told David many times that I do not feel comfortable investing in a property withouth having him take a hard look at the structure to determine the areas of concern. I look forward to working with David for many years to come."
-Chance Warren, General Appraiser

"I have used David Smith for a formal Dryvit inspection as part of a house sale twice, once in 2009 and again in 2013. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and never cuts a corner. The things I learned as a result of the first inspection were invaluable in caring for the Dryvit, making the correction of inevitable small problems much easier for the second inspection. As the familiar ad says, 'These guys are good!"
