Condo Project – Field Testing for Water Penetration Resistance

Recon spent time on-site with the project team providing field quality control testing of installed windows and sliding glass doors for water leakage in order to confirm that the products as well as the means and methods of installation were working to keep water out of the building.

We all know its going to rain, preparing for it is key.

The time spent evaluating the newly installed systems in various openings provided crucial feedback that will allow for the delivery of a watertight building envelope.

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.

If your building is being affected by water intrusion, we can provide similar services for you.  Give us a call to learn how we can do it.

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.
