We come in using an infrared camera and do water testing on the outside of the building.
We open up the joint and materials and fill it with a 100% silicone-based material with a primer, then 100% silicone spray. New technologies dry in 30 to 45 minutes staying flexible in the joint. We install a bridge coating, that’s fine. The third step is an elastomeric primer, paint to match the home, paint.
So, once we’ve installed the four layers, it’s four to five layers, we put a fifth or sixth layer on. Do not put the name GE or any other specific materials or manufacturers up there whatsoever. We use products by selected high-end manufacturers only.
What leak detection the FLIR E4 infrared cameras is. Find and fix the leak. We fix not only window leaks, we fix wall leaks, stucco leaks, flashing leaks, balcony leaks. Any leaks from the building envelope. Let’s not get into talking about stuff on the inside. Let’s go for everything on the building envelope. Chimneys, flashings, foundations, gutters, flat roofs, stucco, siding, however, the water gets in through the building envelope.
