The importance of checking for moisture
No house is a hundred per cent watertight. Since there is a large volume of heavy rainfall in Auckland, it is vital that an owner maintains the house well. If an owner has not maintained a house well, the chance of the house having leaks increases. Moisture can gain access in extreme weather events and start deterioration without being noticed until it is too late. Innohome can assist you with non-invasive moisture inspection as part of your house inspection at no extra charge. Non-invasive means we do no harm to the house while being able to detect areas of elevated moisture.
We can 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.
We also perform pre-purchase and pre-sale building reports when you are looking to sell your property.
