We will inspect the building’s exterior finishes, flashings and openings, to determine their condition and their construction to avoid future problems such as moisture, leaks, rotting and deterioration. For example defects on stucco finishes like the one on the left are difficult to identify, but we will look at details such as stains below windows and other warning signs that there is a hidden damage.
Furthermore, rotted wood windows that have been patched may look fine from a distance, but it’s usually easy to spot damaged areas when up close. The same applies to aluminium clad wooden windows, which can completely rot on the inside, yet leave no visible evidence at the exterior. We will inspect for internal rotting, having noted that the windows that rot first are the ones with no overhangs.
