property-ownersDue Diligence

Part of a prospective owners due diligence prior to the purchase of a building should be a complete investigation or inspection of the entire building envelope. For over 30 years, we’ve provided clients with comprehensive and easy to read reports that can tell you:

  • The existence of current water infiltration
  • The probability of future water infiltration
  • Cost projections to address construction defects or water infiltration
  • Our cost to provide project management and expert guidance to 3rd party contractors hired to fix the defects.

 Insurance Claims

Property owners are often reliant on an insurance company’s analysis of a building’s defect and cost to repair the damage. Many don’t realize the benefits of hiring a building envelope consultant to provide an independent investigation. We have provided property owners with their own reports for many types of damage including:

  • Hail and wind damage
  • Water infiltration
  • Hurricane and tornado damage
  • Ice damming and mold infestation
  • Fire
  • Structural failure or collapse
  • Faulty workmanship
  • Manufacturing defect
