Building Investigation / Weather Tightness
Leaking, mould and dampness can make a building an unhealthy and unsafe place to live. Finding out why a building is not performing as it is supposed to requires consideration of more factors than just looking at the building itself.
Using our expertise in building methodology and the understanding of the science of construction, along with specialist equipment such as moisture meters, thermal imagers, drone and water testing equipment.
Auckland Affordable Inspect a Home can identify leaks, defects, causes of mould, and dampness and report back on their findings. Irrespective of the era of the building, weather-tightness risk will form part of the investigation as design, the builder’s interpretation of the design, the conditions of the site, the quality of the build and the effect of the elements. (Sea spray, driving rain, flooding etc)
Our investigation can include no invasive testing, such as water testing, moisture testing and thermal imaging. Timber sampling to determine if the timber has been treated and the bearing capacity of the timber.
Asbestos sampling includes air sampling, meth screening and lead paint testing. This helps us give property owners a full picture of the current or future building’s healthiness.
If you are worried you may own a “leaky” home or a home with leak issues, or just want to know its ok, we recommend you start with our standard building reports for non-monolithic(plaster) properties to get a good understanding of how your home is performing and what risk it may be subject to. If you are worried you may be looking at buying a “leaky home”, we recommend you order our standard building report for monolithic properties
