Water Intrusion

Water intrusion in commercial buildings can occur due to several factors, especially in the case of glass structures. Primarily, it happens when the integrity of the glass glazing or surrounding sealants deteriorates over time due to weathering or substandard installation. This degradation creates openings through which water can seep into the building structure. Additionally, glass structures are often vulnerable to pressure differentials. If the pressure outside the building is significantly higher than inside, it can force water to permeate through even the smallest imperfections in the glass glazing or its sealing. Lastly, design flaws such as improper slope of glazing systems can lead to water accumulation, contributing to water intrusion. Recognizing these potential issues is crucial in preventing and addressing water intrusion in commercial buildings.
