Accurate analysis of existing roof systems and building envelopes provide the cornerstone for many services including: Due Diligence Studies, Litigation Preparation, Insurance Claims and for Roof Management Planning, such as Roof Wisely. With the appropriate diagnostic tools and decades of past experience, we provide the most practical solution for even the most complicated roofs or building envelope problems. In addition to arriving at a solution the cause, whether it will be materials, workmanship or a design defect, will be identified and corrected.
By beginning analysis in the interior we identify leak locations, air infiltration concerns and much more information vital to problem solving. In this case, a tenant converted his business from a fresh water fish store to one for tropical fish and vented the condensation into the space below the roof deck. The resultant condensation rotted out the roof deck from the underside.
Elton Gregory Middle School in Redmond had both roof and building envelope defects. We used multiple colored dyes for metal roof leaks and Rylum tubes (seen here) for testing water intrusion through the CMU. The testing and analysis substantiated multiple points of moisture intrusion.
Every roof cut we make tells a story! This roof sample revealed that roof leaks weren't the cause of mold odors, but were attributed to condensation occurring under the two year old cool roof which was inappropriately specified on this apartment complex.
