Rain Leak Detection Services The term “when it rains it pours” has never been more true than when living in Los Angeles, CA and the Greater LA area.  When water infiltration does occur The Original Water Intrusion Specialist, WIS, is here to help you find your water leak.  Although it may seem as if rain rarely falls, it does. In fact, oftentimes Los Angeles and the surrounding LA cities and suburbs are so unprepared for heavy rainfall and rainstorms that when the rain does come we often have severe rain related water leaks, flooding, moisture infiltration in walls causing mold, window leaks, and water intrusion in general throughout all of the Los Angeles area.  

Since we are the preeminent testing agency in the LA region with a very high track record of success, we are the go to company for Water Intrusion Testing and Rain Leak Detection for many high end residential clients and many commercial building owners.  Due to this demand for our services, and with consideration that we won’t dispatch anyone other than a true ‘Water Intrusion Specialist’ to your job site, that does in fact limit how many new jobs we can take on each month as we only have so many water intrusion experts; they don’t grow on trees after all! In addition, we are also just as selective about who we work as you are about hiring a Test Company.  We want to know who you are first, what your project entails, timelines, do you have realistic goals, how committed are you to finding water leaks the right way versus the cheapest way, and more general project information so we can make a proper decision if we will be a good fit to work with one another.  

Note that our Rain Leak Detection Services in Los Angeles are performed on both large commercial buildings experiencing water intrusion and also on residential homes that have water leaks and other moisture related damage that occurs whenever the rains come.  We can test a variety of different products and systems for moisture intrusion which include:

Since our tests are performed in accordance with these standards, our results can be easily reproduced and explained if you ever have to see the court of law.

Water intrusion testing and in Los Angeles can also even be more of an art form than a science at times since finding water intrusion isn’t really all that easy.  If it was easy, you would have found it already and not searched for a Water Intrusion Specialist, right?  There are even forensic tests such as the AAMA 511 and ASTM E2128 which incorporate a very scientific approach to water intrusion testing and forensic practices.  Chasing down rain related water leaks and moisture infiltration is no easy task, but ensuring that the company who you choose for this task is properly qualified is simple.

We work with a variety of test equipment such as Calibrated Spray Rack Systems, AAMA 501.2 Spray Wands, FTL Pressure Differential Test Kits (aka Wind Simulation Machines), moisture meters, borescopes, and FLIR infrared cameras. Let us not forget to mention the most important part, a wealth of experience and professional training. Experience in rain leak detection is mandatory. Without knowledge in the proper use of this equipment, the equipment is relatively useless. However, for those who may not possess such equipment but do have some knowledge in testing and application, we also rent necessary water intrusion testing equipment here in Los Angeles and other Southern California cities.
