Leak Detection in Brick / Block or Concrete Walls
Cavity trays and damp proof courses often pose problems, implications of which can be little understood. As a consequence, many leaks into buildings originate within the walls, although they transfer to leak through the roof, thus being interpreted as roof leaks.
Making the wrong assessment under such circumstances can be a very costly mistake, as considerable cost is often put to remedying the roof, when a smaller amount could actually rectify the problem within the wall.
Knowing and understanding the potential for dpc’s and cavity trays to result in leak or damp problems is a vital part of our work.
Once the cause has been established, our consultancy services can come into play for the development of correct and accurate remedial solutions.
