- While inspecting the exterior of this building I came across multiple concerns. This building was constructed in the 1990’s which had face sealed stucco, original aluminum windows with wood trim and no flashings. There was significant concern for moisture ingress as the building envelope was not up to current BC building code standards. I recognize that building code changes over the years but there were multiple components on the building that will require significant upgrades. These types of concerns must be noted during the inspection as it could be a significant expense for the potential buyers of the condo.
Great Article!!! The lower mainland is booming with new condominiums and they will all need to be inspected.
