My name is Dan Bowers and I do residential, commercial and environmental inspections in the Kansas City metroplex and surrounding areas. I’ve been performing building inspections full time since 1984. Before that I was a Home Builder and Commercial Contractor for 10 years. In the past 20 years I have been featured in over 64 articles for local newspapers or magazines, appeared on several TV or radio shows on housing defects, and we’ve have been featured on both Stan Kramer’s investigative TV show, the KC Star’s home video series on home ownership and Channel 41 as an expert in construction defects, etc. AND I have taught adult education classes on building and construction defects at Johnson County Community College in Kansas.
I first started doing Stucco & EIFS Testing and Moisture Analysis in 1998 after taking the two Certification courses from Exterior Design Institute (EDI). These were an extensive 40 hours of training in Philadelphia for “Moisture Analysis & 3rd Party EIFS Inspection”. Since then I’ve taken many training courses on stucco, EIFS, moisture intrusion, building science, stucco repairs and have earned many Certifications in these fields. We’re considered to be the best in our area by many Realtors, lenders and insurance companies when it comes to inspecting Stucco or EIFS OR finding moisture intrusion.

Many inspectors in our area have simply purchased Stucco / EIFS testing equipment and started walking, talking and testing, with NO formal training or education. With the costs associated with moisture intrusion and hidden damages, costly repairs from poorly installed, defective or leaking stucco., it’s CRAZY for you to entrust your family’s home OR commercial business to someone like that.
