I wanted to share some of the the pictures from the house I inspected today. The home is on the market for $1,000,000. You would think for the price the traditional stucco coat would have at least been done right.

Why?

It's stucco !!

A friend of mine in the Houston market who is a specialist for stucco and similar cladding (15 plus years) ... says he has never seen ONE installation that is correct.

No matter if it is a 'spensive house or a less than 'spensive house.

However ... one would hope/think that someone would get it right sometime or somewhere.

It's residential. There's no architect in the picture to specify common features of a proper installation. Every residential stucco job I've seen here is lacking. Nearly every commercial installation is textbook. I'm thinking of adding a web page to my site that'll explain how to avoid 'pitfalls of new construction' by adding specs to the construction contract and confirming compliance with inspections.

Nolan,

you're welcome to tag along to Ft. Worth this late summer early fall and see a HCS throughout the phase progress

from everything else i've seen so far with this 6K+sqft shaq it won't be anywhere close to right & proper

i'm like your friend in Houston, never seen one here either
