What can a tube attached to a wall tell you about your building?
This is a Rilem Tube, it’s used to test how well your masonry facade can repel water, and can test either the brick/masonry part or the mortar joints.
By simply attaching this to your façade, it can simulate weather conditions up to 98mph wind driven rain!
Why is this important?
This is a funny-looking wall!
A Property Manager called us for help with a building they recently acquired.
The masonry company used by the previous Property Manager is now out of business.
