Construction Defect Issues
Many construction defect issues arise from inadequate supervision at the time that the building is constructed. At times, installation contractors fail to conform to the manufacturer's specifications and, ultimately create a construction defect.
In some cases, these construction defects lead to problems with the structure's exterior envelope or the structural integrity of the building.
From a cozy cottage to a downtown high-rise, we provide on-site third party inspections of the building and any work being performed during a reconstructive process to help maintain that all materials are being installed as per the manufacturers installation specifications and also industry standards.
We also oversee construction of new structures. We work hands on with the general contractors and provide architectural detailing to prevent any possible construction defects from the start
For over 30 years, we have strived to be an advocate for our customers’ rights in the purchase of their properties and the preservation of their investments.
Water Intrusion Experts
Here in the United States, water intrusion issues cause millions of dollars of property damage every year. Much of this could have been avoided by hiring a qualified water intrusion expert to oversee the design and construction of the building's exterior envelope. Or, at a minimum, through inspections by a qualified expert, identify areas of concern, provide corrective recommendations and maintenance plans. Our firm uses state of the art equipment to detect water intrusion, such as thermal imaging.
Cascade Inspections Northwest is also a certified EIFS and Stucco Inspector.
We also perform inspections on all types of exterior cladding systems.
