Building Envelope Analysis

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.

Testimonials

The physics of building in the South Florida hot, humid climate are hard enough on their own, but Innovative executes the details better than any other builder I know. It is truly state-of-the-art building science.

Gary Bergstein

Kudos to all that waterproofed our home during the exterior renovation. Despite being on the beach, with Hurricane Irma’s 130 MPH winds, and many windows and doors which we did not have a chance to cover, no water came in the house! Also, it appears that we suffered no structural damage of any kind. Thanks again for your attention to detail and quality work!

Dave & Brenda Pelizzon

Just a quick note to thanks you guys for building a great house for Debbie and me. We came through Hurricane Irma in great shape. We were reflecting how fortunate we were to have such a professional construction team. Thanks for your time and patience in building a truly beautiful well constructed home.

Ray & Debbie Guerin

Your team resolved quite a few problems in my previously renovated 1950s built home. They resolved everything from air conditioning issues to insulation problems to gas and water leaks. They fixed problems other people could not even find.
