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.
