Building Envelope Evaluations
> Structure Thermographic Inspections

Pinnacle Infrared has the expertise to conduct building envelope system consulting, investigation and evaluation on various buildings. Pinnacle Infrared has been engaged numerous times to find deficiencies that may be present in the building envelope (e.g. roofing, walls, foundations, masonry, cladding waterproofing, windows, airtightness, storefronts, etc.) In these cases, Pinnacle Infrared has also been retained to review the actual construction and compare to design documents to determine adherence to standards. We also provide window testing in accordance with ASTM established procedures to ensure a long-term watertight wall system.

We combine the powerful tool of infrared thermography with knowledge of architectural details, engineering expertise, application of best practices, and a thorough inspection protocol. This capability and diligence provides the owner with substantial proof that the building envelope is installed in a watertight manner and in accordance with the design.

Below are a few of the standard ASTM tests that we perform:
  • ASTM C1060 Standard Practice for Thermographic Inspection of Insulation Installations in Envelope Cavities of Frame Buildings
  • ASTM C1153 Standard Practice for Location of Wet Insulation in Roofing Systems Using Infrared Imaging
  • ASTM C1601 Standard Test Method for Field Determination of Water Penetration of Masonry Walls
  • ASTM E783 Standard Test Method for Field Measurement of Air Leakage through Installed Exterior Windows and Doors
  • ASTM E1105 Field Determination of Water Penetration of Installed Exterior Windows, Skylights, Doors, and Curtain Walls, by Uniform or Cyclic Static Air Pressure Difference
  • ASTM E1186 Standard Practices for Air Leakage Site Detection in Building Envelopes and Air Barrier Systems
  • ASTM E2018 Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process
