Investigative Reports are performed by a Principal and serve to identify the cause of moisture migration problem in an existing facility. As part of this investigative process, often the structural performance of a building is addressed as well. The format of an Investigative Report includes photographs of the problems that are found. Following the photographs is a dialogue which serves to explain the conditions and what specifically is wrong at each location.
