Standards

Like with everything, there are rules… and water intrusion testing is not immune to having rules or parameters. For the most part, there are a handful of organizational institutions who dictate such standards for water intrusion inspection and testing like for example, AAMA or ASTM. These standards apply to just about everything building related like decks, roofs, exterior wall coverings just to name a few.

Moreover, its these standards which more or less prescribe the methods by which tests are to be performed and conducted. Most all buildings have areas which succumb to degradation and because of this require specialized individuals with specialized equipment to performed forensic analysis to source water or moisture intrusion within a building or system and there is a standard for these tests.

On the other hand, newly installed systems such as windows also require specialized equipment and training to test these systems and likewise, there is also a standardized test for this as well.

Some of the standardized tests we perform;

  • ASTM D5957
  • ASTM 7053/7053M
  • ASTM E2128
  • ASTM E 1105
  • ASTM E331
  • ASTM E547
  • ASTM C1601
  • AAMA 511-08
  • AAMA 502
  • ASTM 1869
  • ASTMD 4263


Examples of Test Standards

502” Quality Assurance Field Testing –Performed on “newly” installed products to verify installed performance of the product and the installation. For many Los Angeles based builders, the AAMA 502 is one of the most common fenestration tests there is for new construction less than 6 months old. For one thing, the AAMA 502 fenestration test can be viewed as a means of quality control for building owners, contractors, and alike, to guard against poor craftsmanship not to mention the fenestrations ability to resist water and air infiltration early-on in the project.

To be clear, there are essentially two sides to water intrusion testing. There is Quality Assurance Testing and there is Forensic Investigation. MAZZA Testing

Quality Assurance Testing

Quality Assurance Testing or QAT, within the building community and water intrusion testing industry refers to the testing of an installers final product or final installation, whatever that product may be.
The test can be performed in accordance to a very specific standard such as with fenestration testing, the AAMA 502 test or the ASTM E1105 test.

On the other hand, the test can also be at the discretion of the buildings owner to verify a competent installation. In other words, it a test performed so the original installer can be held accountable for any issues which may arise from such a test.

Forensic Investigation

Water penetration into a building can come from many different systems. Understanding the “where and how” water enters into a building is known as a forensic investive approach. Most all good forensic investigations requires a certain level of DT or destructive testing. Destructive testing is also known as the removal of building finishes.

This removal of the buildings finishes like drywall or exterior cladding i.e. stucco, brick, siding etc… This process allows a qualified water intrusion technician such as MAZZA TESTING to better see, visually where water derives.
In other words, it difficult to determine precisely where water originates without destructive testing and a forensic evaluation.

Disinterested Third Party

Here in the city of Los Angeles, there are plenty of companies who are more than happy to evaluate or otherwise inspect your condition with hopes to obtain work. On the other hand, we are truly a disinterested neutral third party testing company which is to say, we do not perform any work after our tests. Although our water intrusion testing is performed by a California Contractor, we still have no interest in performing the construction related part of the project.

Once testing is completed, our water intrusion expert will provide you with a written, narrative style report documenting the facts of the test as well as recommendations depending on the test performed. No matter what test Mazza Testing provides, you can rest assured that we are there only as a neutral disinterested third party firm.


A quick about

All things considered, there are many different individuals who perform well, many different types of water intrusion investigation through the greater Los Angeles area. In other words, just about every contractor with a water hose will say they do water testing.

Although this may be true, and it is… not all contractors understand and or follow the standards which dictate or otherwise prescribe the scientific approach to testing systems, like MAZZA Water intrusion testing company. Granted there are literally hundreds of specific tests which can be performed in sourcing water infiltration. Therefore, it takes a professional who is experienced in leak detection or water intrusion testing to determine the approach to sourcing the issue coupled with the appropriate test.

Of course, you have to understand that this is what we do, everyday. We look for water inside buildings, period. Whereas other contractors attempt to determine the leak point in hopes to sell you on their service, we will not.
