Detailed roof inspections can identify locations of moisture penetration and prevent structural damage. WEC engineers offer expertise on all roofing styles and materials, including flat roofs constructed of built-up roofing materials or single-ply membranes or steep roofs of wood or asphalt shingles.
Each of the following materials, EIFS, brick, vinyl, aluminum, and composite wood, have advantages and disadvantages. WEC engineers are skilled at evaluating defects and the installed conditions of each of these siding materials. Efflourescence and mildew staining all may be symptoms of bigger problems.
Mold and mildew are the results of chronic moisture problems. WEC investigates moisture penetration related to siding, roofing, and foundations. Moisture- related issues with EIFS cladding and windows are also in our area of expertise. WEC engineers are skilled at finding moisture entry locations and prescribing methods to minimize water intrusion.
Over time and as the subject property ages, construction materials will deteriorate, creating a need for various capital improvements that consist of the repair and replacement of the defective materials. In many cases, these capital improvements can prove to be quite substantial, resulting in the need for a professional engineer to oversee the improvements and ensure that the problems are identified and corrected in the proper manner.
