  • Condensation Investigation & Testing

    Condensation investigations requires a multi-disciplinary approach.  Window condensation may result from cold window surfaces, very moist air or both. Usually, more than one aspect of the building is out of balance. Because of the multiplicity of factors, condensation investigations can be challenging.

    Our approach to condensation investigation involves multiple steps. We bring test equipment to your building anywhere in the world. Then the detective work begins.

    Hello Mark,

    Is there a coating than can be applied to aluminum to prevent or inhibit condensation?

    I would like to use aluminum studs for a small shed.

    Maybe something like Rhino lining or Gator lining.

    Thanks for your help,
