Its not always visible.  To aid in examinations of buildings Recon employs many tools.  One of them is infrared thermography.

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?

Details – The Water Is In The Details

When we examine a project, we look at the details that have, in our experience, contributed to water intrusion on past projects.

Our focus is tight.

Our goal simple.

Protect our client’s reputation and interests from water intrusion issues and the expense it brings.

We report issues in a clear and concise way that allows for direct action to correct the potential problem, before it affects the building in an adverse way.

If you want a second set of eyes to focus on the small details, we’re here to serve.

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.
