  • Window Water Leak Testing

    Water leaks at windows can be serious and destructive. Fixing them is a priority matter. But first you need to find out why and how the leak occurs. This is where window testing is needed. We bring our portable test equipment to your building anywhere in the United States or Canada. Our water test reporting is clear and illustrated with photographs. In addition, we customize test methods to fit a particular application. This can accelerate the diagnostic process and provide very specific understandings of water leakage paths that may exist.

    When windows leak water, or when performance testing is required for new window product
    certification in the field, these methods are used:
