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
