Window & Roof Leaks
Roofs and windows in Fort Myers must withstand the forces of hurricanes and unrelenting sun, moisture and heat. Extreme weather, poor design, and poor construction can all contribute to leaks. They are sometimes too small to detect with the naked eye, but the longer they go unchecked, the more damage they will cause.
It’s important to keep in mind that water that appears to be coming from a leaking window or roof may actually be coming from an entirely different place. Damage to an interior or exterior wall or the roof may have allowed water to intrude near a window. Because it can be hard to identify, it’s important to have the professionals at Innovative Construction Solutions take a look and determine how to fix the problem.
Innovative Construction Solutions specialists can test your exterior windows for water leakage utilizing a spray rack that is typically positioned in the general area of the suspected water infiltration. We also provide infrared imaging for window leak detection using FLIR thermal imaging cameras, the highest quality infrared equipment in the industry. These tests can quickly identify the source and location of any leaks and the extent of moisture damage.
We also utilize the latest leak detection technologies to find hidden leaks in flat and barrel concrete tile roofs and metal roofs. Our inspectors have extensive knowledge and experience in both newly installed roofing systems and re-roofing systems.
Next to rain damage, air leaks through walls, roofs, and floors can be responsible for significant energy loss and home deterioration.
Heating and cooling accounts for about 54% of your energy usage, and air leaks are responsible for more than half of that. They can also cause problems with indoor air quality that affect the health of your family.
Uncontrolled leaks also carry moisture into framing cavities, causing mold and rot, water damage, or pest infestations, and can have a damaging effect on your home’s structural integrity.
We have the expertise to detect air leaks emanating from locations such as rim joists, cracks between finish flooring and baseboards, electrical outlets and light switches, utility chases, plumbing traps under showers and tubs, plumbing vent-pipe penetrations, kitchen soffits, recessed can lighting, fireplace surrounds, and cracks between partition top plates and drywall.
By sealing the air leaks, we can help reduce the amount of conditioned air that is escaping from your building, improve the quality of the indoor air, and prevent moisture from wreaking havoc on the structure.
