Field Quality Control Testing During Construction

Recon continues to support its clients by providing the field testing required by project specifications within Division 8.

Third Party Testing

Our clients and their reputations are important to us, so we carefully and responsibly provide third party testing during construction to ensure water penetration resistance of the building envelope at openings.

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?
