A building envelope is the barrier that separates the indoor environment from the outdoor environment and involves the interaction of roofs and exterior wall systems. When poorly designed, installed incorrectly, or damaged, these barriers can compromise the function and efficiency of the entire structure.
Examples of building envelope failures include wall, window, door or roof leaks; high levels of condensation on windows and walls; staining on interior finishes and exterior cladding; dampness and musty smells; and visible corrosion or decay.
Improve performance & maximize the value of your asset
Our building science professionals employ many years of experience and state-of-the-art technological tools to test and evaluate building envelope conditions through both invasive and non-invasive techniques, such as:
- Water and air infiltration testing
- Blower-door depressurization
- Infrared thermography
- Moisture mapping
- Temperature and humidity readings
- Roof surveys
- Evaluation of mechanical systems
- Construction defect investigation
With decades of experience in Southwest Florida, Innovative Construction Solutions can expertly identify evidence of building envelope deficiencies that are common in the region, such as recurring water problems and damage, and then recommend the appropriate repair/restoration strategy.
