Recon Independent Assessments Investigates Water Intrusion

The recent tropical rains that swept across Florida has lead to the reporting of leaks in many buildings.  While some of the issues were straightforward and solutions were easily attained, there are times when a more thorough approach is required.

Recon is always ready to help & our longtime clients know it.

We’ve been busy tracking down the cause and origin of leaks for many of them using a combination of visual examinations, IR Thermography and diagnostic water testing.

Recon Independent Assessments provides building envelope quality control examinations throughout the construction process to help monitor the details that could result in water intrusion if not completed correctly.  Our periodic visits provide a focused look at specific areas that may get overlooked by the project team due to the vast amount of activity that is ongoing.

These visits supplement window testing that is conducted on site.

The singular focus of our visits (building envelope details) allows us to provide feedback to the Superintendent and Project Manager so that issues can be addressed in a timely manner.  Eliminating potential water intrusion issues during the construction process leads to a better building being delivered and that is always our goal.

Let us know if we can discuss how our cost effective QC program can benefit and strengthen your project team.
