Water Intrusion Investigations
About Water Intrusion
Water intrusion into a building envelope is a significant
problem to today's modern structures. The problems caused by water
intrusion into a building range from a nuisance to complete devastation.
Locating the source of where water is entering a building can be quite a
mystery and requires a qualified expert with experience in pin pointing
the source. Our engineering staff is up to the challenge.
WFCG utilizes numerous techniques and tools to quickly and accurately determine
the source of water intrusion, including site observations, electronic moisture
meters, water pressure tests, ultrasound technology and infrared photography
just to name a few. Leaving a water leak un-checked often leads to a myriad of
other problems within a building/residence such as wood rot, drywall damage,
flooring damage, mold and mildew issues and environmental health concerns.
Once identified, WFCG reports on the root cause of the problem, details the
mode of failure and provides solutions to the problem at hand. We ensure that
the solution is practical, feasible and complies with applicable building
