Leaks in the building envelope

Sealing the outer envelope of your building is extremely important for many reasons. Cracks in stucco, gaps around penetrations through the wall and failed caulking around windows are some of the most common defects that will allow water intrusion into your walls.

Water intrusion can cause structural damage in wood frame buildings as well as damage to interior finishes. Leakage on a regular basis will cause mold growth and other unhealthy contributions to your indoor air quality.
