Element Forensic Engineering provides a scientific approach to the evaluation of damage occurring to a building envelope, including surface, subsurface, walls and roof. Our team of trained professionals use both non-destructive and destructive investigative techniques, to provide a thorough and comprehensive conclusion.
Non-destructive methodologies include visual assessment, thermal imagining and moisture readings. Our conclusions and reporting differentiate between a one time (singular) and reoccurring event. With the determination of the cause, we are able to develop repair recommendations and solutions.
Typical areas of investigations include:
- Cladding issues
- Roof membrane issues
- Flashing issues
- Ice damming
- Indoor moisture
