Forensic Analysis

Our skilled technicians will determine the extent and cause of vapor drive, condensation, and ice build-up in your temperature controlled warehouse space. We’ll conduct a forensic analysis of the existing conditions through invasive and non-invasive investigations.

Invasive investigations include cutting into the roof system at roof-to-wall junctures, drip edge details, penthouse and roof top structures, as well as making a systematic grid of core cuts to determine the extent of contaminated insulation and exposing deficiencies in the building envelope.

Non-invasive investigations include the use of infrared cameras to spot ice exposure and insulation contamination, smoke tests to uncover areas of unwanted air transfer, as well as a visual assessment of current vapor barrier ties to the roof system and insulated panel structure.
