how does this sound...

Weep screeds and flashing details are not visible or appear to be missing at one or more locations of the masonry stone veneer.  These details are vitally important for the ability of exterior wall coverings to properly shed water and are considered best practices for stone veneer installations.  Lack of flashing and weep screeds may contribute to prolonged moisture retention, water intrusion to the interior,  and eventual damage to the wall structure.  Recommend qualified masonry, stucco, or stone veneer contractor evaluate and repair as necessary.

Not that it is right by any means but the moisture will run in and out, makes a person wonder what is there for moisture barrier behind the shutters.

Well it does me anyway.

I believe a house wrap is there... but not sure.  Then the felt paper as the "2nd" paper layer as required by local codes.  No other details other than attachment and 2 layers of paper are present in the codes... pretty vague.  Debating on how to write this one up... or if I should just leave it alone...

If the second layer is not under the bottom flange of the window something you can not see there will be issues.

I would recomend IR.

All faux stone is , is glorified stucco with exposed aggregate. It will drain water better because it has not been painted or sealed like a lot of stucco has been these days.
