Ian at Moisture Detection clearly has a wealth of knowledge on all topics related to building weather tightness. More importantly he had the knowledge on all the options for addressing the leaks. Those options were discussed with me and I agreed on a scope of work. Moisture Detection undertook work, at a reasonable price, to improve weather tightness (windows, barge boards, roof flashing), remove gib and inspect some areas, and inject RotStop throughout the house. Some repairs were also conducted by a registered builder. Now with annual moisture readings I have been able to correct any causes of high moisture readings and have confidence in the condition of my plaster clad home. I have no hesitation in recommending Moisture Detection to any current or potential plaster home owner.
