05. My condominium has several problems with infiltrations. I need to know what to do to solve them. Can Checkhouse help me?
Yes. Checkhouse professionals are qualified specialists in the several areas of real estate technical due diligence, that evaluate with accuracy the condition of common areas (Garages; Roofs; Terraces; Entrance foyers and Elevators; Swimming pools, among others), and the fractions of the condos.

Through equipment with the most advanced technology, Checkhouse performs a “check-up” to the quality of infrastructure, visible and not visible, and the equipment of buildings.

06. In the event of a dispute, how can a Checkhouse Report (TDD) help?
Checkhouse reports are often the tie-breaking factor in disputes involving condominiums; apartment owners; contractors and real estate managers. In fact, the technical report produced after the Technical Diagnosis to the property concerned, allows many times to mediate conflicts between the parties. When this is not possible and these cases come to court, the Checkhouse report serves as proof for the source of the problem (be it an infiltration, a cover of a terrace, a fissure, etc.).

07. I have problems with na infiltration, but can diagnosis be performed even though the affected area is already dry?
Yes. Through equipment with the most advanced technology, Checkhouse performs a “check-up” to the quality of the infrastructure, visible and not visible, with a series of non-destructive testing, identifying the source of the infiltration problems.
