Minnesota Stucco Repairs: Case Study #3, Full-Tear Off and Redo

This blog post is the third in a three part series, written by Reuben, which has been posted at our new moisture testing web site.

Reuben grew up thinking he was going to be a school teacher because he enjoyed teaching others so much. In a sense, that’s a lot of what home inspections are about, so Reuben truly does what he loves.
