:Inspector's signiture

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.

Asset's The apartment is located in the
building's south. The building is old. It
cause: was built about 30 or 40 years ago.

The client's apartment is renewed.

Several changes were made in it.

‫ נעשו בה מספר‬,‫דירת הלקוח משופצת‬


There are water damage signs.
.‫קיימים נזקי מים בדירה‬

We have been hired in order to locate the source of the fault/s, if such

exist/s, and to give our recommendation on proper solutions to these

faults and their pricing including rehabilitations, if required.

The inspection was made by a qualified inspector, who used the required
technological instruments in accordance with his professional judgement in
the field.

The use of the Thermal Imaging Camera was done in accordance to Israeli
code no. 13187

The findings are as follows:

1. Area The findings

The Living Room We began our inspection at the living room. there is a stain in the right side of the

and a Drainage ceiling above the window, below the upstairs neighbor's balcony's entrance. This

Pipe nearby stain can be seen in pics. num. 1-2. It is dry. The client explained that it occurred

last winter when it rained heavily so a pool of water was created at the neighbor's

balcony. Afterwards, they found out that the drainage was full of debris, so they

cleaned it, and added pipes, because the drainage pipe is small, thin, and

ineffective, as can be seen in pic. num. 3.

2. Area The findings

The Balcony We went to the cleint's balcony, which is in the bedroom adjacent to the living

room. The pipes added due to the drainage issue can be seen in pic. num. 4. The

balcony was renewed, and stones were added. The cleint told us that there are

few water damage signs inside the apartment near the balcony's door. He also

told us that after the renovation was done, there was a short circuit during the

rain, so they opened the socket and water came out of it. This socket can be seen

in pic. num. 5. We saw that waterproofing is lacking in the stones, and maybe also

in the neighbor upstairs' balcony which caused wetness in the wall, causing the

short circut.

3. Area The findings

The Kitchen We continued to the client's kitchen. Above and below the airconditioning there
are water damage signs, as can be seen in pics. num. 6-11, there is a high level
of moisture inside the ceiling and also in the wall. In pics. num. 12-13 water
damage can be seen inside the kitchen.

The Neighbor's We went up to the neighbor's apartment above the client's apartment. First, we

Apartment, the examined the balcony, which is on top of the client's living room. As can be seen

Balcony in pic. num. 14, the drain is very small and ineffective. In pics. num. 15-16 it can

be seen that there are many signs of water damage in the balcony's walls, and

possibly waterproofing is lacking in the door's threshold area which caused the

stain in the client's apartment underneath it. In thermic pics. 17-18 a very high

level of moisture can be seen underneath the balcony's floor. It can also be seen

that the drainage is ineffective, there is no double drainage system as is required.

The Neighbor's From there we went to the kitchen upstairs, which is on top of the client's kitchen.

apartment, the It has a small service balcony. As can be seen in pic. num. 20, the drain is very

Kitchen small and ineffective. In pics. num 21-23 it can be seen that there is a lot of

debris. In pics. num. 24-25 it can be seen that there is a high level of moisture

underneath this balcony's floor, and it seems that the waterproofing is ineffective.

Because of that, while it rains, water is leaking into the client's kitchen. In thermic

pics. num. 26-27 it can be seen that in the left wall there is a high level of

moisture. I assume that when it strongly rains, the stones absorb the water and

instert it into the client's kitchen below.

There were found three problems:

:‫התגלו שלוש בעיות‬

1. In the neighbor upstairs' balcony and its door's threshold
waterproofing is lacking and the drainage is ineffective. A
double drainage system should be installed.

‫בדירת השכן שמעל חסר איטום במרפסת ובסף דלת וגם הניקוז איננו‬
.‫אפקטיבי וצריך להתקין מערכת ניקוז כפולה‬

2. In the client's balcony waterproofing is lacking in the new wall.
Because of that, water entered the socket and also entered into
the room, near the balcony's door.

,‫ כתוצאה מכך‬.‫במרפסת בדירת הלקוח חסר איטום בקיר החדש שנבנה‬
.‫ וגם נכנסו לתוך החדר על יד דלת המרפסת‬,‫מים נכנסו לשקע‬

3. Also, on top of the client's kitchen, in the neighbor's apartment
there is a small balcony in which waterproofing is lacking and
effective drainage is needed, and in the wall near this balcony
waterproofing is lacking too, so a sealant should be sprayed.

‫ שחסר בה איטום‬,‫ יש מרפסת קטנה‬,‫ בדירת השכן‬,‫וגם מעל המטבח של הלקוח‬
‫ ובקיר על יד המרפסת הקטנה הזאת גם כן חסר‬,‫וצריך להתקין בה מרזב אפקטיבי‬

.‫ וצריך לעשות איטום באמצעות ספריי‬,‫איטום לקיר‬

Recommendations for fixing the faults and

rehabilitating the damages:

Recommendation specifics: Price


1. At the upstairs neighbor's balcony there is a 13,000

need to make waterproofing over the whole

balcony. It is a small balcony, so it will be

useless to make a local repair, which might

worsen the problem. Within the overall

waterproofing a double drainage system

will be installed and the door's threshold will

be treated, according to specifications of

LU25, LU100 and LU31.
‫באזור המרפסת של השכנים מלמעלה יש צורך‬

‫ היות ומדובר‬,‫בביצוע איטום על כל המרפסת‬

‫ לא כדאי לעשות תיקון נקודתי‬,‫במרפסת קטנה‬

‫ במסגרת האיטום הכולל‬.‫שעלול להחמיר את המצב‬

‫תעשה מערכת ניקוז כפולה וטיפול באזור סף דלת‬

.LU31-‫ ו‬LU100 ,LU25 ‫לפי מפרטים‬

2. At the outside walls there is a need for 7,500

waterproofing between the interfaces and

around penetrating elements and

afterwards spraying a sealant in order to

prevent absorption and passage of water

into the apartment.
‫באזור הקירות החיצוניים יש צורך באיטום בין‬

‫הממשקים וסביב האלמנטים החודרניים ולאחר מכן‬

‫עשיית התזת חומר איטום למניעת ספיגה ומעבר‬

.‫של מים לתוך הדירה‬

3. In the neighbor's apartment, At the service 3,800

balcony outside the pantry there is a need

to make a drainage system for the water

entering the laundry area and waterproofing

of the whole floor and the walls in order to

prevent absorption and passage of water.
‫ יציאה מחדר‬,‫ באזור מרפסת השירות‬,‫בדירת השכן‬

‫ יש צורך בעשיית מערכת ניקוז ליציאת המים‬,‫מזווה‬

‫שנכנסים לאזור של המסתור כביסה ועשיית איטום‬

‫על כל השטח רצפה כולל הקירות למניעת ספיגה‬

.‫ומעבר של מים‬

4. After the treatment preventing water 1,500

penetration is completed, there is a need

for repairments inside the house in places

damaged by the water penetrated. It will be

done by scraping, spackle, and applying

new paint until perfect finish is achieved.
‫ יש‬,‫לאחר הטיפול שיעשה שימנע את חדירת המים‬

‫צורך בעשיית תיקונים בתוך הבית במקומות שנפגעו‬

‫ עשיית תיקוני‬,‫מהמים שחדרו וזאת על ידי גירוד‬

.‫שפכטל ועשיית צבע חדש עד לגמר מושלם‬
