Third Party Water Intrusion Investigations By Recon

When we received the call requesting assistance in locating the sources of multiple water intrusion issues in a three year old structure we were happy to help.

Despite calls for service to the contractor, the potentially responsible subcontractors that responded to investigate provided no solutions, just a finger pointed toward a different subcontractor.

After watching the circular firing squad approach end without results, we got the call.

Our approach was simple; we looked at the details where leaks were being reported without bias regarding who may be responsible.

Our process included gathering background information about where leaks had been observed inside, followed by a methodical examination and diagnostic testing until the leaks were duplicated.

Once we were able to see the leaks happening, we provided documentation to the owner so that they could request specific remedies to the latent problems affecting the building.

Have a building that needs a neutral third party examination?

Water Intrusion Investigation – University Campus Building

Recon Independent Assessments again provided investigative services, in partnership with the Architect working for Facilities Maintenance, on a university campus in North Florida to provide valuable information that will allow for the creation of repair documents to stop ongoing water intrusion issues affecting a building.

By documenting the existing conditions and performing testing, we were able to locate the defects causing the water intrusion.

A report documenting the sources of water along with photos detailing and supporting our conclusions was submitted the following day.

Recon is proud to have built an ongoing relationship with the facilities staff and architect that has been ongoing for years.

Water Intrusion Investigation

When the building is experiencing leaks there are many possibilities for where the water is coming from.  If you need assistance locating the source of the issue, we can help.

We did just that earlier this month for a Central Florida city.

We were able to identify multiple issues that will need attention to restore the building envelope to prevent water from passing through to the interior during wind driven rain events.
