Get to the source of the leak with our water intrusion investigation service. Leak investigation documentation and estimates are often provided to property managers, owners, HOA Boards, residents, and tenants.
When it’s time for repairs, we manage the entire water intrusion repair process and can repair the source of the leak, any damage to your buildings structure, building envelope, or interior. Our technicians are skilled, efficient, and professional so you know that your repairs will last for years to come and extend the life of your building.
Leak Investigations to Determine the Root Cause
When water intrusion is discovered, determining the source of the leak is the top priority.
Our leak investigation experts begin with a water intrusion test to see if surface moisture levels indicate an active leak. Active leaks must be mitigated, and the area dried out before the water intrusion damage can be repaired. Sometimes this can mean removing or cutting into building materials to expose the leak.
Continuing the Leak Investigation
In this case, the leak has affected the ceiling of this bathroom and the drywall has to be removed so the repair technician can document the source of the leak.
The technician cuts open the drywall and documents the condition of the wallboard before removing it. Underneath the wallboard discolored insulation indicates the area has been exposed to moisture.
Next, the technician will remove the insulation and dispose of it, exposing the source of the leak.
Using a meter, technicians check the ceiling for moisture. In this case, the drywall must be cut open to find the source of the leak.
Before Work Begins
The technician takes a “before” photo documenting the work area before the investigation begins.
Preparing the Work Area
Our experienced technician protects the room from consequential damage by fully covering and masking the rest of the room.
Detecting the Source
The source of this ceiling leak is a broken pipe seal from the floor above. In this case, the leak investigation has revealed that another unit in this building is involved.
In this instance, the area is temporarily patched until repairs can be scheduled.
The work area is cleaned and all debris has been removed and disposed of.
Leak Investigation Documentation and Repair Estimate
Once the investigation has been completed, we provide an estimate for repair along with documentation of the findings. Estimates can include all the information you need to provide to stakeholders before deciding on a course of action.
Water intrusion Repairs
Water intrusion repairs can address the source of the leak, damage to the exterior siding, damage to the building envelope, structural damage, and interior damage which can include insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, trim, and cabinetry. Throughout the repair process, our experts determine the scope and extent of the repairs and which materials will deliver the best results for your property. We include this documentation in our estimating process so you can provide details to all stakeholders and make the best decision for your property.
When a leak is active, all areas that need repair must first be dry. During the rainy months, this can mean a temporary patch repair to the source of the leak until things dry out or we can build a temporary structure to complete the repair in inclement weather. In most cases, once the area is dry, repairs can be scheduled.
This multi-family residential condominium complex required extensive repairs from water infiltration. Water intrusion repairs to the interior floor, exterior deck and structural elements of the building were completed once the work area was dry.
Our repair technicians followed our repair protocol that guarantees your siding repair will last for years:
This exterior storage area had a leaky roof causing extensive water damage to the structure and siding.
Once the work area dried out, the repair technician began to remove the damaged siding, posts, decking, and rails.
All the affected areas were repaired and new WRB ensures a dry interior.
New flashing, siding and trim are added to match the current building materials.
Hardware was installed, the roof tiles replaced, fresh paint and deck stain were matched to the existing products. This exterior storage area looks as good as new.
We deliver quality repairs for a single unit or our experienced crews can make property-wide water intrusion repairs.

Victor [Repairs Foreman] did you all proud today, I was really impressed. As a woman in business, I can say it is a pleasure to work with the gentlemen of HOA Services. You have my sincere appreciation.
They are all really cool people who are nice and easy going. If I didn’t like small things along my rebuild process, they fixed any issue I had. They put my cabinets and kitchen back together very, very well. I would use again for small things I have around the house.
The feedback I received this morning regarding the workmanship and attitude of James [Repairs Division Technician] was very positive. They want to use you guys going forward for small maintenance issues.
