One of the main concerns with building facades is recognizing and determining the source of interior moisture leaks. Entering moisture can travel many routes before it shows up on the interior of a building. In some cases it never shows up, instead saturating into building materials and presenting later as a mold and mildew issue. Determining the points of failure in a building’s exterior can be a calculated, although labor-intensive process.
Performing a detailed façade analysis to determine potential avenues of moisture intrusion requires experience from past inspections. Schnell Contractors, Inc. can perform the following leak detection services to correctly ascertain the leak source.
- Provide staged water test at area of leakage
- Flood test using ASTM certified water pressure nozzle
- Remove existing exterior materials to inspect ‘ as built “ conditions
- Perform a “test” repair, followed by a water test
By taking an analytical approach to water leak detection, Schnell Contractors, Inc. can confidently identify the leak source and make accurate recommendations for repair without wasting our clients money using a “hit or miss” approach.
