Case Study: West LA, Apr. 2013
I was called in by Sam. He works in the movie industry in West Los Angeles, California. Sam had leaks from sprinklers outside his home. The water got in and underneath the weep screed from outside, plus there was a lack of drainage. We came in with our FLIR B cam infrared camera. I was able to diagnose the point of entry through the stucco foundation and the weep screed. We wrote up a protocol repair order for the outside, and additionally came in the inside, set up containment, remediated the building materials, water damage, and minor mold. Completed the entire exercise in less than a week’s time. Every issue has now been corrected, and we re-water tested and proved that it is now correct. The home has made it through rainstorms without any water leaking in and the owner is happy and the home is now water wise.
