Expert Leak Detection in Composite Walls
These might be described as having substantially different elements. For example, modern buildings with a steel frame may have an external insulating panel and render finish. Such structures are notoriously difficult to work on, as they provide little scope for physical inspection. Notwithstanding that, we at Thornton Consulting have considerable expertise in establishing not only where, but also why, leaks occur.
We at Thornton Consulting use our expertise and knowledge derived from many of thousands of tests over two decades and are now recognised experts in tracing and analysing such leaks. Where we come upon a new system that we have not investigated before, we will undertake the necessary researches with the supplier and, if available, the cladding contractor. The tried and tested principle is to identify suspect points and then prove them via positive testing.
Once the source has been determined, it is vital to ensure that rectification is targeted to the defective component. We provide a full advisory service in this respect, such as discussing the problem with those involved, preparing specifications where required, supervising remedial works, testing the repairs, etc.
