Our extensive leak detection knowledge and experience using the latest innovative equipment and processes

An independent roof inspection and report will provide you with a detailed and comprehensive investigation into the condition of your roof, including detailed information about plumbing defects your roof may contain and compliance with the Australian standards.

Modern construction methods often mean that not all leaks are straightforward to identify, some can occur for years before they become visible, often after considerable hidden damage is done to the building

Identifying the exact source of water leaks can often be a time consuming and difficult task which often requires complex processes, an experienced eye and some real detective work to find the exact source.

Our extensive leak detection knowledge and experience using the latest innovative equipment and processes assist us to locate some of the most elusive ongoing leaks in buildings.

The most common areas we encounter that require specialist leak detection and investigation include leaks from showers and bathrooms, balconies, roofs and window and building facades Some of the many causes of these leaks including defects in waterproofing membrane failure, poor sealing around windows, doors or expansion joints, roofing and poor installation of building paper and flashings
Often a suspected water leak can lead to an unexpected and increasingly common culprit….condensation. Condensation can be a major problem causing water damage to property and mould build up which can cause serious problems for your health. We have seen mould in new homes prior to handover from builders and buildings less than 10years old condemned due to mould caused by condensation so this is not a problem restricted to older buildings

Examples of some of the state-of-the-art technology we employ for our specialist leak investigations include, Thermal cameras, remote crawling Inspection cameras, miniature and telescopic inspection cameras, sound detection devices, moisture meters and Testing equipment including coloured dyes to trace water to the source of leaks. Non destructive leak investigation and detection is always our primary aim if possible.
