Air/Vapor Barrier Installation Audits
J.R. Specified Systems, LLC is a certified ABAA installation auditor and offers turnkey inspection/auditor services for pre, during, and post air/vapor barrier system installations for liquid applied, Self-Adhered, and Sprayed in Place Polyurethane Foam (SPF). Air/Vapor barrier audits are available for both ABAA & Non-ABAA projects anywhere in the continental U.S. As part of the Quality Assurance Program (QAP), each ABAA-specified project has third-party audits of the installers work. The number of audits conducted shall be either how many the specifier has specified, or the square footage of the project as per the ABAA QAP and listed in the ABAA master specifications. The auditor will conduct a visual and physical examination of the air barrier installation to ensure all aspects of the air barrier installation including the conformance to the project specifications and to ensure the air barrier materials and accessories are installed as per manufacturers specifications. The auditor shall ask to see the Daily Job Site Reports, and other related materials pertinent to the project for that day and for days prior to the audit. The auditor will verify that the information recorded on the form is accurate and complete to the extent that this can be done.
Once the ABAA auditor and the ABAA QAP technical staff have reviewed the audit report, it and accompanying pictures are sent to the Air Barrier Contractor, General Contractor, Architect (specifier) and Manufacturer. This allows for the interested parties to resolve any concerns, or deficiencies that have been found during the audit.
