Window and Walls Investigation
Our firm has been involved with the investigation and/or design of new and existing windows and wall systems. Our involvement has been either on a forensic basis where a window or wall system has failed and allowed water to enter or, in the case of new construction, as a specialty consultant to ensure that the window or wall system is designed and constructed properly.
Our design intent for windows is to create an installation so that the window properly interfaces with the wall resulting in a leak free installation. Depending on the window system this may involve an installation that collects water received through and around the window redirecting it to the outside. Alternatively the design intent may be a barrier system that blocks all water from entering in the first place. In either case the moisture is prevented from entering the wall construction or interior space.< Back
