Building or renovating?
No one likes a leaky building, least of all us. At ILD, we use state of the art technology called EFVM to locate leaks.
EFVM. The perfect choice for your build.
a precise result
We can pinpoint leaks exactly to ensure no leak goes undetected.
limited impact on your DESIGN
EFVM doesn't affect the structure of a building. There's no need for reinforcing.
ability to retest easily
Retesting is straightforward and won't cause delays to the building schedule.
EFVM can be used in a variety of areas, including garden roofs, parking garages and pools.
Talk to us before starting your project.
By including leak detection in your building timeline and/or architectural specifications, we'll be able to make sure all the other trades on your build know what's required.
It'll make it much easier for us to do our job, too.
Send us your drawings
Once you've confirmed you're using membrane, we'll ask you to send us your drawings. We'll measure, offer advice and send you a quote.
During this process, we can answer any questions you may have, including:
- How to incorporate membrane into your drawings
Which process is best for testing the membrane – flood or electronic
- How to ensure you're meeting your local council's regulations around waterproofing testing (if applicable)
If you're keen to progress, ILD's requirements will be incorporated into your building programme.
What happens on-site
Building starts. We'll work with you/the project manager/the water-proofer to sort out a plan for when testing will happen.
Note: This timing is contingent on whether or not mesh is required (this is dependent on the type of substrate).
For non-conductive substrates such as plywood or insulated roofs, mesh is required. Your waterproofer or builder will need to lay the mesh before testing can happen.
For conductive substrates such as concrete, mesh isn't required and testing can be completed after the membrane is installed.
We'll send you our report
After testing is completed; we'll provide you with a report including details on any leaks or workmanship faults.
This report will include CAD drawings, picture documentation and written analysis detailing the locations of the breaches.
If leaks are detected, we can easily retest the membrane after they've been fixed.
