Leak detection involves identifying and fixing leaks on the roof or exterior facade of a building. This can be done through a combination of visual inspection, moisture testing, infrared thermography and fluid pressure testing. It is important to identify the root source and address leaks promptly in order to prevent further damage to the building and ensure the safety and comfort of the occupants.

Facade leak detection is the process of identifying and addressing leaks in the exterior walls of a building. These leaks can cause damage to the building's structure and create a variety of problems for the occupants, including mould growth and decreased energy efficiency.
There are several methods for detecting leaks in building facades, including visual inspection, moisture testing, and infrared thermography.
Visual inspection involves a trained professional physically examining the exterior of the building for signs of water infiltration, such as stains or discolouration on the facade.
Moisture testing involves the use of specialized equipment to measure the moisture content of building materials, which can indicate the presence of a leak.
Infrared thermography involves the use of a thermal imaging camera to detect temperature differences in the building's facade, which can be indicative of moisture behind the walls.
It is important to address facade leaks as soon as they are detected in order to prevent further damage to the building and to ensure the safety and comfort of the occupants.
Repairs may involve sealing or patching small cracks or holes, or more extensive work such as replacing damaged building materials or adding additional waterproofing layers to the facade.
It is essential to follow proper safety procedures when working at heights, as it can be a potentially hazardous activity. Technicians should be trained and certified in rope access techniques, and proper safety equipment should be used at all times.
