Urgent EIFS advice

Anna Smith
last year

Hello, we’re building a new house and chose eifs as exterior finish. We got it inspected by an eifs inspector as “it just didn’t look right“ to our gutter installer. The inspection report confirmed our doubts and it said the soffit j-channel shouldn’t have been buried by eifs layers. Now it’ll be impossible to repair or replace the soffit, if there was moisture, animal invasion or any other damage. Also, the second picture says that they used wrong termination channel and now the moisture will not weep out from behind because the mesh is wrapped inside the channel. Please advise!
