When your building’s envelope has leaks allowing the elements to penetrate interior systems, the efficiency and performance of your building becomes compromised. These leaks can occur in your roof, exterior walls, doors, windows, and other building penetrations. Various contractors tend to be focused on their area of expertise versus taking a comprehensive approach to see how the performance building components are affecting each other.
90% of leaks are a result of a building component negatively impacting another.
Over 10 building components comprise the building envelope.
Building envelopes are the important, complex systems that keep your heating and cooling in and the outside elements out.
The building envelope is a general term to describe the multiple building systems that separate the exterior of the building from the interior of the building. The building systems include: the roofing systems, exterior wall systems, floors, and any openings in the structure (doors, windows, skylights, etc.)
Yes, based off an inspection of the property in question, we can provide recommendations of repairs to prevent leaks.
When it comes to your building’s envelope, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. An Alliance team member will examine common exterior, leak areas and analyze the impact that weather-related elements have on the building.
Once we complete the building analysis and inspection, we’ll review our findings with you, so you can start preparing for whatever repair work is needed. If you already have a contractor to do the work, we’ll include them in our discussion, so that you both have a better idea of what work needs to be done and approximately how much it should cost.
Alliance will also provide a report of our findings and opinions. The report will be written in a way that you can easily understand what we found and how to proceed in order to resolve any issues our team found with your building’s envelope.
