Coastal Zone – Water Penetration Resistance Field Quality Control Testing

The importance of creating a watertight building envelope is critical along coastal Florida communities.

Recon Field Quality Control

Recon was honored to be entrusted to provide field quality control testing of installed windows and doors in several multi-million dollar residential projects this year.

By partnering with the builder, window installer and architect, we were able to verify the success of the installation of quality products in the homes.

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?

Targeting Success Through Testing

Ready To Serve

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.
