Water leak & weathertightness investigations for commercial buildings.

The team at Zenith are experienced water leak and leaky building investigators, they have seen many different types of leaks and defective cladding over the years.

Zenith are very knowledgeable about the way in which concrete behaves, the way in which water ingresses through the concrete structure and how the building structure is affected by the water ingress or water leak.

Zenith was developed out of our focus on delivering long term, fit for purpose solutions for every aspect of building remediation process. This is how the name Zenith came about, as a way to place emphasis on the companies aim towards the highest possible ideal in every building project that they undertake. This culture of aiming high has meant that Zenith has a list of clients that they performed services for many years ago that attest to the quality of their workmanship today.

From cap flashings that have heavy gauge steel tube balustrades fixed through them with Tek screws into the underlying wooden parapet structure to leaking cold joins in pre cast poured in concrete paneled buildings, they have seen, investigated and solved every type of leak.

Zenith undertake water leak investigations as the first step to solving a building leaking issues, the building may not end up requiring a large scale project to solve its problems, however in almost every case Zenith has been preceded by a large number of tradesmen, that have failed to rectify the water leaking issue’s and have just applied silicone product.

This is very common in our industry with other industrial abseiling company’s as they have the skills to gain access to the building’s exterior but not to properly diagnose and fix the problem.
