Especially in Texas, the unpredictable shift between scorching heat and torrential rains and storms can quickly wear down a building envelope. If not corrected at the outset of a construction project, even the tiniest problems could lead to expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient repairs in the not-so-distant future.
Building envelope consulting from our experts allows you to spot potential issues early on, such as air infiltration, water infiltration, structural deflection, and thermal and sound transmittance.
An uncorrected water infiltration problem could lead to a mold infestation that could cause serious health problems. And even a small air leakage could significantly reduce the air purity of your building, leading to an increased risk of colds, illnesses, and asthma flare-ups. Not to mention the increased monthly energy bills it would cause.
Our accredited building envelope consulting tests are designed to help ensure from the very beginning that your building envelope is durable, reliable, and capable of holding up when faced with strong weather.
Especially with the unpredictable Texas weather, hiring a building envelope consultant could save you a tremendous amount of time and money.
After all, a construction project is a layered, multi-phase endeavor where each component rests on the foundation of the project: the building envelope. So it doesn’t take much at all (just a small leakage of light, air, or water) to create problems that could cost thousands of dollars to fix.
