WINDOW PRODUCT FAILURES
Roberts Consulting Group investigates window product and installation failures, with our specialized tools and 24+ years of experience in the field, to determine the cause(s) of the window leaks. Sometimes the window is not the problem. Our approach is to determine the primary water intrusion source by isolated testing methods. With our through testing we are able to test any one area in question and provide reports for the appropriate repairs to keep water out. Often we have found other primary sources of water intrusion that are within the general location.
Once the repairs are made, we can retest affected area.

MOLD CLAIM INVESTIGATION
Roberts Consulting Group investigates the cause and origin of the primary water intrusion to determine the source(s) of water triggering mold growth.
