Weatherproofing and leak issues are often more complex than expected. Buildings and roofs made to last thirty years often are built with component that fail in ten years. If one element or component fails, the building envelope or covering may leak. Air and water leakage lead to premature failure of the entire building, not just a roof.
This is where AWC becomes your advocate, not just as a roofing consultant, but we assess the entire building’s component systems. Failing or prematurely failed systems can be appropriately prioritized for correction or replacement. As a consultant, we are independent to elimiate conflicts of interest. We provide expertise in diagnosing building and roof problems and prescrbing solutions. Before getting advise from contractors, we will provide an opinion that does not suggest a proprietary application.
Some things you may not have considered:
- All Leaking does not start with the roof system. Windows and balcony decks often are the first items to develop leak issues.
- Plumbing of internal drain lines can leak without the roof system being directly involved. The same is true of roof mounted HVAC equipment.
The best approach to diagnosis of the building systems is the initial investigation and report provided by AWC, a professional Roofing and Building Envelope consultant.
Owners of multi-unit HOA buildings in Los Angeles, San Diego, and surrounding southern California areas, will find the professional Investigation Report indispensable in all future planning of the building roof and other systems.
All options are based on appropriate site specific alternatives, owner desires, budgets, and other parameters suggested by the owner’s input during initial consultations.
