Why you should have your stucco inspected!

Here is an example of a Florida (major part of the country with problems) inspection of an EFIS (stucco), external insulation finishing system ,building that has water infiltration.The flashing is damaged and water got in between the exterior and the foam board. The sun heats up the building all day and at sun down the water which conducts heat better than foam emmits heat at a faster rate which appears in red.As you look at the picture notice the upper left corner is where the water got in.
