INVESTIGATIVE WINDOW MONITORING

Windows are a crucial component of the building envelope, and any issues in their performance can become very visible to tenants and create an ingress point for moisture into the structure. Monitoring window assemblies during the design/testing phase, as well as during investigations, is a speciality for SMT and we can adapt our technology to the needs of the project.

Parameters Measured

  • Window Leak Detection

  • Wall Moisture

  • Interior air conditions

  • Moisture content of exterior wall sheathing

  • Condensation potential in wall cavity air space 

  • Perfect for window retrofit projects or new construction
