Testing & Diagnostics
Qualitative and quantitative testing services provide evidence that completed components and buildings are constructed to meet design requirements.
Testing and diagnostic tools are used to evaluate construction quality, as part of commissioning programs, or as diagnostics to evaluate issues.
Infrared Thermal Imaging. JRS has the equipment and trained personnel to conduct infrared imaging analysis. This diagnostic tool measures surface temperatures and temperature differentials that help indicate trapped water, air leakage, and thermal bridging.
Whole Building Air Leakage Testing. Whether as a diagnostic tool or to meet Energy Code-required testing, JRS has been conducting whole building air leakage testing since 2010. We are leaders in this area and can conduct tests to meet a variety of testing protocols. Results are both qualitative and quantitative.
Blower Door Testing. Many projects require compartmentalization or assembly air leakage testing, to meet LEED requirements or verify design goals for air barrier separations. We have the right equipment, personnel, and expertise to perform this testing.
Water Penetration Testing. Installed glazing systems benefit from water tests to check their performance and integration into buildings. We have the expertise and equipment to conduct tests with and without induced pressure.
Electronic Leak Detection. JRS’s can perform low-voltage vector mapping to detect and pinpoint breaches in roofing and waterproofing membranes, without causing damage. This is often used as an alternative to flood testing, and is a valuable quality control tool.
