Congress Associates Offers International Leak Detection Services throughout New England

Congress Associates is the new Independent Sales Representative for International Leak Detection (ILD) covering all of New England and Connecticut. ILD leak verification services are now offered through Congress Associates as a complement to its roofing and waterproofing solutions.

Congress Associates is excited to represent ILD leak detection and integrity testing services,” said John Massengill, Congress Associates President. “Our mission is a strong commitment to provide a high level of service to our customers by offering truly innovative products and services in the industry. ILD is a great addition to our roofing and waterproofing service offerings, but more importantly an exceptional solution to offer our customers for the long-term protection and maintenance of their building assets.”

International Leak Detection (ILD) has been the leading provider of roofing and waterproofing integrity testing since 2001. The company success is based on 30 years of experience, the proprietary Electric Field Vector Mapping (EFVM) testing method, and a dedication to extraordinary service. The ILD leak-proof reputation has been attained with stringent quality assurance and training standards to ensure the highest caliber of service.

ELECTRIC FIELD VECTOR MAPPING (EFVM) is a low-voltage test method that creates an electrical potential difference between a non-conductive membrane surface and conductive structural deck or substrate, which is earthed or grounded. Developed by ILD Germany in the early 1990s, EFVM quickly became a valuable tool for leak investigations on existing systems. Introduced to North America in 2001, the EFVM testing procedure has become the standard for waterproofing verification.

Over time, small punctures, membrane splits or mechanical damage to waterproofing membrane result in wet insulation, mold, and costly interior damage. Previously, lengthy and costly leak investigations were necessary to locate a membrane breach, especially in protected roof membrane assemblies, garden roofs, or parking and plaza decks. Now the unique ability of EFVM® allows for testing the integrity of waterproofing membranes with a non-invasive method while reading through the system overburden and providing accurate results.
