LEGAL, EXPERT WITNESS, AND DISPUTE RESOLUTIONS SERVICES

Mr. Robert J. Mault, Principal, EIFS & Stucco Inspection & Forensic Services, provides inspections and testimony as an expert witness in Construction Defect litigation cases as well as arbitration hearings and construction dispute mediation services.

AIR & WATER/WEATHER RESISTANT BARRIER, SEALANT/WATERPROOFING INSPECTIONS

Three of the more important components of an exterior wall envelope are the air & water/weather resistant barriers, sealants and flashings. We will inspect the in-process installation, existing or designed details to help protect the building from water infiltration.

MOISTURE INSTRUSION ANALYSIS

With specialized equipment, moisture content can be located and analyzed within a typical structure. Locating moisture content in stucco or stone cladding is a bit more difficult and time-consuming than in EIFS claddings, but it is often done. A written and photographic report documents the location, and will attempt to identify the source of any moisture intrusion. (Detailed information).

PLAN REVIEW FOR EIFS AND STUCCO

We will review contract documents containing EIFS or stucco. The evaluation includes review of details and specifications with commentary. It is our role to offer opinion based upon experience, product knowledge and industry standards. However, it is the role of the architect to take that opinion and use it (or not) in the preparation of the contract documents. It is the architect that is ultimately responsible for the real world performance of the contract documents.

SCOPE OF WORK (REPAIRS)

We will produce a delineated repairs/remediation plan that will bring your facility back to life. We can work with your architect to produce a realistic approach to problems within a given budget.

SPEAKING/PRESENTATIONS:

Robert J. Mault is also available to offer presentations on exterior wall claddings tailored to individuals or groups at your office, workplace, seminar or convention. It is our experience that the Question & Answer period is the most popular portion of the presentation. Please contact our office for further information.
