Air Leaks in Buildings
An air leak can be a subtle problem, but one that can cost a lot of money over the long term due to wasted energy. It can also be anything but subtle, allowing moisture a path to seep into your home and cause substantial structural damage in the form of insect infestations, mold, rot and more.
Not only can an air leak cost you money, it could even endanger the health of you and your family. It can lead to degradation of your home’s indoor air quality that can have a major impact on anyone with respiratory issues.

Air Leak Detection
The professionals with Innovative Construction Solutions have several ways of effectively detecting air leaks. We can find them no matter where they may be coming from, whether it’s an electrical outlet, a plumbing trap, the space between your baseboards and flooring, or anywhere else.
One of the ways we detect air leaks is a method known as blower door testing. We mount an extremely strong fan to the frame of your front or back door. This fan lowers the indoor air pressure by pulling all of the air out of your home. If there are any openings or cracks, higher air pressure from outside will get inside. The test will show us the rate of air infiltration into your home, and reveal where that infiltration is occurring.
A roof leak can be even more damaging than an air leak, putting the structural integrity of your home in major jeopardy. We can perform a detailed inspection of your roof to find any signs of water intrusion and identify areas that need repair. We’ll also be able to let you know how long your roof is likely to last.
There are a lot of reasons why a roof will leak. It could be due to a recent storm, normal wear and tear, poor construction or installation, or something else. Regardless of the reason your roof might be leaking we’ll get to the source of the problem and help you determine the best course of action to fix it.
We use sophisticated thermal imaging cameras, known as FLIR cameras, to find leaks in many different types of roofs, including tile, metal and flat roofs. This technology is a non-invasive way to pinpoint the exact location of a leak so that the proper steps can be taken to seal it for good.
