Most construction litigation defect claims are the result of water infiltration and damage. Even with proper waterproofing and detailing, age and weathering can cause waterproofing to fail and damage can result.
McGinnis Chen Associates, Inc. offers a variety of investigative and diagnostic testing services for existing buildings that are afflicted with water infiltration or building enclosure performance failures. MCA utilizes a variety of techniques, equipment, and computer analysis to investigate issues within the entire building enclosure. MCA has non-destructive moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras, water testing equipment, and boroscopes to assist in our investigation efforts.
Our staff is trained to identify areas of concern and document the conditions requiring repairs in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our in-depth knowledge of construction and years of working in the industry attest to our accuracy of identifying the remaining service life of individual building components.
