Moisture Intrusion

Webster Mechanical Engineering (WME) provides forensic consulting services in the area of moisture intrusion on residential and commercial buildings.

Moisture intrusion is typically noted as mold growth or as moisture condensation on cold surfaces. When the mold or condensation is limited to one localized area, the source of moisture is usually easy to determine. However, when the moisture intrusion is present throughout the structure, the entire building must be analyzed to determine the source and the conditions leading to its intrusion into the structure.

WME conducts on-site moisture intrusion evaluations, which includes thorough examinations of the building’s envelope, construction, HVAC systems, plumbing systems, exhaust and ventilation systems, and the occupancy usage to determine the sources of the moisture and the conditions causing the intrusion.
