We Offer Free Moisture Testing With Your Building Inspection and Report
It is important to include moisture testing in your building inspection.
No house is a hundred per cent watertight. Auckland is exposed to heavy rainfall. If a house has a lack of maintenance this percentage of water tightness decreases. Moisture can gain access in extreme weather events and start deterioration without being noticed until it is too late.
If not detected early expensive repairs are required with extra costs for Council and architects involvement. Depending on the year constructed and material used, this can speed up the deterioration process and create an unhealthy living environment.
Innohome can assist you with non-invasive moisture inspection as part of your property inspection. Non-invasive means there is no harm is done to the house while being able to detect areas of elevated moisture.
We are able to target specific high-risk areas. We have extensive knowledge of materials used in the past, design failure, construction knowledge and modern technology. Because of Kevin extensive knowledge of building materials used in the past over different building eras, he can advise on the best repairs option as well as required maintenance schedules to halt moisture deterioration before it spreads.

In addition, the device is suitable for preliminary inspection and location of areas for further investigation.
