Certified Stucco Inspector Training
Thank you for your interest in Moisture Warranty Corporation (MWC). MoistureFree Warranty is the long-term solution homeowners and Realtors have waited for to deal with the moisture issues associated with stucco homes, and it’s the only warranty that is available nationwide!
Qualified home inspectors may submit homes to MWC for warranty consideration and will be paid a referral fee for each warranty issued. In addition, a referring inspector also has the benefit of providing all follow up (warranty midterm) inspections on the home he/she sent to MoistureFree Warranty.
To be considered for warranty coverage, stucco homes should be tested using the MoistureFree Warranty Inspection Protocol, or the home’s inspection must be approved by a MoistureFree Warranty Specialist to be sure it meets MoistureFree Warranty standards.
To submit a home for warranty consideration, simply contact MWC at 800-400-8679. The home must be submitted within 90 days of a qualifying inspection.
Moisture Warranty Corporation has trained hundreds of home inspectors throughout the country on the correct methods for thoroughly inspecting both synthetic stucco (EIFS) and hardcoat stucco homes.
We support the inspectors by being there for them as they encounter questions in the field, provide them with newsletters about information important to their business, and foster a mutually beneficial relationship. If you are interested in becoming MWC Certified in your area, please call 800.400.8679.
