about water damage fault/s which may exist in the client's property. I give this

I hereby proclaim that I have no personal interest in this report's object and have
no personal relationship with the client or anyone that may be involved in respect
to this inspection. I have conducted this inspection to the best of my professional
ability, and in faith that the facts brought forth in this report are true and the
conclusions derived from them are true too.
Any of the findings and data specified in this report refers only to the date of the
inspection. We will not be held responsible of any new faults to occur after the

What constitutes viable evidence for this report:
Regular photos, thermal imagings, videos, samples and information given by the
client, all gathered by the inspector, form the base according to which the
inspector can ascertain the origin of the problem/s, if any exists, and formulate
his recommendations accordingly.
Please note:
our company makes great efforts to locate the source of any problem in your
property. There are, however, cases in which the inspection may fail due to
different reasons. If such a failure should occur due to a mistake made by the
inspector, we will perform a second inspection at no further cost.
However, if the inspection's failure is not at the fault of the inspector, such as in a
case where an inspection cannot be made due to field's conditions or if the
inspector receives misleading information from the client, we will not be held
responsible for the inspection lack of results and will not perform another
inspection without additional cost. We feel this point should be made clear as
these cases tend to be rather common. We emphasize our policy in this regard,
in order to serve you, our client, in the best and most transparent manner.
Furthermore, if a need should arise for a second inspection using different tools
than those used in the preliminary inspection, the client shall be charged with
addendum payment accordingly in case that a second inspection takes place.
In order to facilitate and clarify this report, we recommend reading the
explanation on thermal imaging before you. Please note that a proper reading of
a thermal image requires special training and one should not make assumptions
based on the images in this report alone. The conclusions of this report are those
set by Luzon's qualified inspector and by him alone.
Explanation of thermal imaging:
The thermal scale is indicated by color. The bluer the color- the colder the area.
On the other hand, red indicates that the area is hot. The point of the darkest
blue is usually the source of the leak.

The findings are as follows:

1. Area The findings

The Lowest Floor, The first area inspected is the lowest floor. In the wet room, the bathroom,

the Wet Room signs of paint pealing can be seen on the ceiling. As it can be seen in pic.

num. 1, there is a high level of moisture. On top of this area there is a

the Boidem can be seen in pic. num. 2, and in this area there are also signs of

moisture. On top of this area is located the pipeline system of the whole

3. Area The findings

The Second Floor, On top of this area, as said, is located the pipeline system of the whole

a pipeline system house. It can be seen in pics. num. 3-5. From an inspection made no pipes

were found leaking, but a more in depth inspection showed that there were

three iron pipes which were replaced with plastic pipes. Two of them were

neutrelized, but the third one is the one causing the wetness and it was not

replaced completely, some of it is now plastic, but a part of it remained

iron. It can be seen in pic. num. 6. This pipe is the cause of the moisture

signs in the bathroom wall. The high level of moisture in this area can be

seen in pics. num. 7-8.

The Lowest Floor, Other areas in the lowest floor were inspected as well. A wall in the

the Stairwell, stairwell which is adjacent to the bathroom has a high level of moisture

adjacent to the with paint pealing, as can be seen in pics. num. 9-10.

5. Area The findings

The Bathroom We were told that in the past there was a leak from a pipe in the bathroom

and later on the whole bathroom was renewed, including the pipes and the

ceramic tiles, a few years ago. I assume the waterproofing system which

was then done is insufficiant, therefore there still is water passage while

the shower is used, as can be deduced from pics. num. 11-12, in which it

can be seen that there is a high level of moisture underneath the flooring

and on the wall adjacent to the wall seen above in the staircase.

6. Area The findings

A Bedroom In a bedroom adjacent to an exterior wall which was treated it can be seen

that the paint is pealing although the level of moisture is rather low. This

wall was treated, as we were told, by proffesionals in the field of

waterproofing. The wall with low level of moisture can be seen in pics.

7. Area The findings

The Lowest Floor, Near the exit to the balcony in the lowest floor there is a certain level of
a Balcony moisutre in the door's threshold area. A material was applied on the
flooring in order to prevent water absorption into the bedding layer, but I
suspect it was done unprofessionally, so except for ruining the floor, the
problem was not solved. In pic. num. 15 water passage through the door's
threshold into the house can be seen, as well as capillary uptake as a
result of it. There is no drainage system in the balcony so therefore water
gets trapped in the bedding layer and then penetrates to the door's

9. Area The findings

The Exterior Wall The exterior wall waterproofing system is failing, so water is absorbed and

passed into the storage room located underneath the balcony, as can be

seen in pics. num. 19-20.

1. The main problem is at the water system going up towards
the upper floor, the main pipeline, which is made of iron.

,‫למעשה עיקר הבעיה היא במערכת המים שעולה לכיוון הקומה העליונה‬
.‫ שהיא למעשה ברזל‬,‫הקו הראשי‬

2. There are also waterproofing issues at the floor of the
balcony at the backyard in which has no drain system.

‫יש גם בעיות של איטום הן ברצפה של המרפסת יציאה לחצר האחורית‬
.‫של הבית ואין מערכת ניקוז‬

3. The walls around the storeroom lack waterproofing.
.‫בקירות מסביב למחסן חסר איטום‬

4. In addition to that, the waterproofing system of the wet room
is also inadequate and causes water penetration into the
staircase while the shower is used.

Recommendations for fixing the faults and

rehabilitating the damages:

Recommendation specifics: Price
1. There is a need to make a detour over the
iron pipe by a professional plumber who will 25,000
cancel its usage and will replace it whit a
plastic system. This can be done externally
or by inserting a narrower pipe into the pipe,
but in this case, I assume it would cause
decrease in water pressure, so I prefer
making a detour instead of trying to insert a
pipe into the pipe.

‫יש לבצע מעקף של צינור הברזל על ידי בעל מקצוע‬
‫בתחום האינסטלציה שלמעשה יבטל לחלוטין את‬

‫ הדבר‬.‫צינור הברזל ויחליף את זה במערכת פלסטיק‬
‫יכול להעשות או בצורה חיצונית או על ידי השחלה‬
‫ אולם פה להערכתי‬,‫של צינור בקוטר יותר נמוך‬

‫הדבר יגרום לירידה בלחץ של המים ולכן אני מעדיף‬
‫שיעשו מעקף ולא ינסו להחדיר צינור בתוך צינור‬
.‫שירד הלחץ במים‬

2. At the balcony, in order to solve the problem
properly, there is a need to dismantle the
whole balcony and make a new
waterproofing system according to
specifications of LU25 which will include
also making a double drainage system
according to specifications of LU31 and
making a waterproofing system at the door's
threshold according to specifications of

Page 16 of 20

LU100, which will prevent water passage

into the house. The cost is estimated.
‫ אם רוצים לפתור את הבעיה בצורה‬,‫באזור המרפסת‬

‫נכונה ואמיתית יש צורך בפירוק של כל המרפסת‬
‫ שיכלול בתוכו גם עשיית‬LU25 ‫ועשיית מפרט‬

‫ ובאזור סף‬LU31 ‫מערכת ניקוז כפולה לפי מפרט‬
‫ שימנע מעבר של מים אל תוך‬LU100 ‫הדלת מפרט‬

.‫ עלות מוערכת‬.‫הדירה ובזה תיפתר הבעיה‬

3. At the storeroom exterior walls there is a 4,500

need to seal holes and cracks and

afterwards to spray a sealant made by

Polydan according to specifications of

‫ יש צורך‬,‫איטום הקירות החיצוניים מבחוץ למחסן‬
‫בעשיית תיקונים סתימת חורים וסדקים ולאחר מכן‬

‫התזת חומר איטום מתוצרת פולידן לפי מפרט‬

4. In the wet room, due to the fact that we 2,800

were informed that the waterproofing was

done by professionals and it is likely that the

failures are in the walls' sealing, in this stage

only an external treatment will be done,

which means making epoxy grout between

all of the tiles, on the walls as well as on the

floor, for reducing the costs. If it does not

solve the problem, there will be a need to

dismantle the whole wet room and making

waterproofing again according to

specifications of LU200. The price is for

applying epoxy grout in the interfaces

between the tiles on the walls and on the
