For Builders and Designers

We design details for those tough-to-build situations (a deck over a living space, window installations at a high exposure site, etc.)  You know how to build it, but are you sure it will be watertight year after year?  Do you have time to check which sealants are compatible with which flashings and which materials to use to protect the building from water intrusion damage and ultimately protect your business from litigation?

Waterproofing Design and Details
MFC has decades of construction experience evaluating damaged buildings.  By inspecting and repairing hundreds of installations that failed, we know what works.  And what does not.  We are waterproofing specialists who come on site and design the custom details you need to build those challenging assemblies.  We also offer on site crew training for complex installations so your team’s knowledge base grows.  Our goal: no call backs.

Don’t let waterproofing complexities stop you from building the design you envision. We can add the custom details, allowing you to focus on the creative elements. Let us be part of your team so the finished product is outstanding.

MFC adds value to building projects when we collaborate with the project architect or other designers. This can be an informal discussion of waterproofing possibilities, our redline editing of existing architectural plans, or a full architect-MFC-builder-owner conference to value engineer a project’s waterproofing needs.

Forensic Testing
Are you at a remodel job site and found rot? Need an expert opinion as to what caused it? MFC will do investigative testing to discover the source of water damage that led to the rot. We also have specialized diagnostic equipment on hand to help determine the extent of the problem. You then could use our results to relay to the owners when discussing your scope of work.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Whether in the middle or at the end of construction, when the Owner/Builder relationship is not working as it should, projects can run off course.  MFC can get the project back on track. We have experience side-stepping the blame game, getting to the heart of the issue and designing a fix that works for everyone. We are happy come on site and be a neutral “voice of reason,” able to communicate with all parties to work out a resolution. MFC’s Arbitrators, Mediators, and Neutral Experts will work to find common ground and a solution that is fair for all.
