The purpose of the AAMA is to provide specific information to assist industry professionals in selecting appropriate standards for the application of field investigations of fenestration products. This test is used when the source of the leak is thought to be related to a defective fenestration product. The height of the water is determined by the amount of pressure the fenestration product is rated. Example: 1 inch of water equals 5.

Once the appropriate depth of water is reached, we monitor the test specimen for leakage. It is NOT to be used as the sole criteria to determine whether or not the fenestration product is defective. These techniques are far too often forgotten because investigators rely on assumptions rather than following investigative testing protocols.

The improper diagnosis of a water intrusion can result in unnecessary repairs, additional water damage, and inevitably, an unhappy building owner. The time and expense to perform an initial, well focused, accurate evaluation of a water intrusion will save the interested party money in the long run and result in repairs that extend the service life of the building.

AAMA Water Spray Testing

In essence, the whole purpose of diagnostic testing is to recreate leaks which are known to occur in specific locations. For example, the guideline is built around the ASTM by adding additional steps which can be used to help identify water intrusion into Los Angeles buildings. Having a company experienced in water intrusion is essential in determining the cause of the infiltration. Because of this, not just anyone will do. You need a water intrusion expert. Furthermore, the AAMA guide allows for the assistance in choosing the appropriate adaptations to the already existing standards in order to apply them to field testing and investigations. Additionally, it outlines required actions or necessary steps to window leak or product investigation.

Water Penetration Field Testing

Volume 9, Issue 6 - June Uncontrolled water penetration through exterior walls, with consequences ranging from mold infestation to physical damage, has been the subject of numerous investigative studies. However, leakage problems are not so likely to be due to faulty window design. But such standards and tests do not account for the more likely culprit: window leakage due to poor installation. In addition, water penetration at or near a fenestration product opening actually may originate from the surrounding construction. Situations also can arise where a forensic investigation of an actual leakage problem is useful to pinpoint the leakage path.
