I am not aware of any issues in that community but don't let that discourage you from buying a house with stucco exterior. Any experienced home inspector should be able to identify if there are any stucco issues during the home inspection. If so, you can request to hire a stucco consultant for a more comprehensive inspection OR you can choose to back out of the transaction and terminate the agreement as long as you are within the inspection period.

There are countless problems with stucco homes, from all builders, so testing would be an excellent idea, although it is more expensive than a regular home inspection. Remediation can be very expensive, so take the precautions ahead of time.

There have been instances of stucco remediation throughout the Delaware Valley. It is recommended that you if you are considering a home with a stucco exterior to spend the money and test, since remediation is uber-expensive. Good Hunting!

Most people are testing the stucco today as well as property inspections. Contact us and we can refer several testing companies for stucco.

Good luck and good day,
