Siding, Masonry, Stucco & EIFS Evaluation

- ESS will also do a moisture analysis of your façade. This determines necessary repairs and areas of latent moisture that may not be visible to the naked eye.
- For masonry buildings, our team will determine areas that require tuckpointing, repair, or rebuilding.
- Is your façade is near the end of its life or does it require major repairs? ESS will prepare specifications and drawings you can use to easily and quickly get contractor bids for repair or replacement.
- Our team will also determine what siding and trim should be replaced before you start an exterior painting project.
