Wall cladding systems come in many shapes and forms. They range from lightweight metal systems to stone or concrete facades. More often than not, by the time a leak appears, the information relating to design and build has been lost.
At Thornton Consulting we use our expertise and knowledge derived from thousands of leak detection tests on wall cladding systems over more than three decades and are now recognised experts in tracing and analysing such leaks. Where we come upon a new system that we have not investigated before, we will undertake the necessary researches with the supplier and, if available, the cladding contractor. The tried and tested principle is to identify suspect points and then prove them via positive testing.
Once the source has been determined, it is vital to ensure that rectification is targeted to the defective component. We provide a full advisory service in this respect, such as discussing the problem with those involved, supervising remedial works, testing the repairs, etc.
