A building envelope consists of the physical barriers (such as walls, roofs, windows, and doors) that separate the interior of a building from the exterior environment. Its integrity is crucial for maintaining the structure’s energy efficiency, comfort, and durability. Building envelope leaks can lead to significant issues, including structural damage, energy loss, and mold growth, making prompt and effective intervention critical.

Understanding Building Envelope Leaks

Building envelope leaks occur when external elements like water and air penetrate through supposed barriers. Common areas for these leaks include:

  • Roofs and Attics: Poorly sealed or damaged roofing can allow water to enter, leading to leaks and moisture accumulation.
  • Walls: Cracks, gaps, or deterioration in exterior walls can serve as entry points for moisture.
  • Windows and Doors: These are common weak points for air and water leaks, especially if they are not properly sealed.
  • Foundations and Basements: Water can seep through cracks in the foundation, leading to basement leaks and structural issues.
