Wall, window, door or roof leak leaks; condensation on windows and walls; dampness and musty smells; wall damage or deterioration; stains on interior finishes and exterior cladding; visible corrosion or decay; and poor energy performance can compromise the function and efficiency of the entire structure and are serious concerns for builders and building owners.
