Building Envelope Diagnostics

Whether your building is new or old, large or small, commercial or residential, all buildings can benefit from building envelope diagnostics services. The process has been around for decades –  since buildings were first constructed. The building envelope consists of the entire exterior building system of your structure, including windows, doors, roof, floor, foundations, and insulation. Generally, any outer exterior element that keeps the building dry, heated, or cooled. 

The process involves inspecting and testing the physical exterior to determine signs of weakness or if there are any air, water, or thermal leaks within the building. If any trouble spots are found, they are noted and then fixed or replaced. Building envelope diagnostics help to maximize your building’s life expectancy while increasing comfort and safety levels. 

 

Building Envelope Testing Services

Many different types of disintegration can occur within an improperly built or maintained building envelope. Moisture-related problems are the most prevalent in today’s world, commonly stemming from leaking roofs. Water leakage can damage the structural integrity of a building, posing unsafe working and living conditions and an extraordinary amount of damage. Controlling water, vapor, air, and thermal movement is critical to your building envelope and if problems are not detected and maintained by a professional immediately, it can cause significant damage. At CRI Restoration, we assist our clients with water intrusion and metal corrosion prevention (like coating metal to prevent rust), as well as excessive air filtration and exfiltration, building forensics, temperature testing, and more to prevent moisture accumulation, mold growth, corrosion, and inefficiently heated or cooled spaces relating to your building envelope.
