We Specialize in Exterior Cladding System Evaluations
At Lunny Building Diagnostics, we are Water Management Experts. We specialize in the inspection, evaluation, and forensic testing of exterior building envelopes for proper application of cladding systems & identification of problems relating to moisture penetration. Whether the cladding material consists of stucco, EIFS (Dryvit), cultured stone & natural stone veneers, brick, cement board or vinyl siding, our investigative diagnostics will provide the detailed information necessary for our clients to have a complete understanding of what was installed & how it’s performing.
A building’s exterior cladding system should never adversely affect structural integrity or the condition of interior components—as long as the cladding material is undamaged and properly applied When installed correctly, exterior cladding will protect the frame and the interior of a structure from moisture intrusion. However, it’s not uncommon for oversights in the application of materials and a lack of understanding of Water Management principles to render an exterior cladding system defective. When moisture penetration occurs, damage is soon to follow. That’s why you should call Lunny Building Diagnostics to schedule an appointment today!
