Pacific Exteriors specializes in exterior construction defect repair, construction problems, water intrusion repair, and remediation here in the greater Portland metro area. Construction defects are typically design flaws and building mistakes done during the construction of the building. The most common tell-tale sign of exterior construction defect is water intrusion, moisture intrusion, dry-rot and mold growth. Construction defects reduce the value of the home or building, and in some cases can be dangerous for occupancy. From a variety of different factors, like poor workmanship, inferior materials, and lack of proper waterproofing in protecting the building’s exterior envelope, this problem has become wide spread over the past 15 years.
With the amount of wind driven rain and the building boom here in the Pacific Northwest, Multifamily properties, Apartments, Condominiums, Townhomes, Hotels, Residential homes, and Commercial buildings all have these exterior construction problems and construction defects. Pacific Exteriors is the contractor to call for exterior building envelope repair.
With such an incredible recent home building boom here in the greater Portland, OR, and Vancouver metro areas, builders and contractors have been more concerned with timelines of project finishing, and coming in under budget with low grade materials and labor. The integration of critical waterproofing steps and details not done, building codes not followed, and non-compliance with manufacturer guidelines of installation protocols have created this problem. The end results are windows leaking, water intrusion, mold, dry-rot, construction problems, wasted materials, resources, time, energy, money, and a great deal of frustration. Construction problems and construction defects could have been avoided had builders focused on quality materials, detailed flashings, workmanship, and protecting homeowners from leaking windows, water damage, water intrusion, moisture intrusion, and building homes and structures correctly with simple exterior envelope waterproofing measures.
Here in the Portland, OR and Vancouver WA surrounding areas, builder problems, siding damage and dry rot, leaking windows, water damage to interior window sills even on new construction is commonplace when proper waterproofing is not done correctly. Pacific Exteriors has repaired many construction defect issues on large scale projects and homes simply because of minor aspects missing that were an integral part of the building process and protection of the exterior envelope. Damaged siding, exterior siding problems, window problems, roofing problems, decking issues and rotting trim around windows and doors, water coming into the home, to windows leaking water are all signs of these type of exterior construction problems.
