Residential Investigations



Often a house is not a home if it is freezing or soggy inside. We know that construction can be a complex beast and sometimes the smallest of oversights can result in a degradation of occupant comfort.

We work with home owners who have complex problems and apply building science technical knowledge together with various testing techniques such as infrared scanning to arrive at the facts that are needed to devise a repair solution.


  • Initial review and meeting with Owner.

  • Thorough review of drawings and construction details.

  • Testing might include review with an infrared camera, smoke pencil, blower door or water testing.

  • Testing may require the assistance of a contractor.

  • Exploratory openings inside or outside the house.

  • Letter or email reporting with photos.

  • Options and budget considerations for remediation.
