"XL Services is in the business of problem solving. It's our job to figure it out to end your aggravation."
IMPLEMENTATION AND QUALITY CONTROL OF OUR SOLUTIONS TO MASSIVE EXTERIOR ENVELOPE DEFECTS
This 120 unit residential building was only two years old when the exterior envelope began to leak like a sieve. Doors, windows, balconies, roof, pool deck, subterranean garage and exterior details were the source of constant moisture intrusion causing problems such as wood rot, staining, flooding, damage to personal property and reduction in the value of the individual units and the building itself. XL Services was hired as consultants to the general contractor making the repairs to this building. This two year project required numerous directives and site specific recommendations in order to facilitate the repairs. This service included working closely with local building authorities and other design professionals, on site training, quality control inspections, and providing written specifications and details of custom repair solutions.
IMAGINE IF THIS POOL LEAKED
Thanks to XL Services' close work with the pool company, ProLinePool.com, the proud homeowner got the pool of his dreams, the one that others said couldn’t be built. XL Services negotiated a first of its kind testing protocol with the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety for the six inch thick glass walls that were a unique installation in the City of Los Angeles. Under careful scrutiny by our principal consultant, the tri-level hillside pool successfully passed all required testing.
MAN FALLS THROUGH SKYLIGHT
After falling nearly 27 feet to the ground below, an HVAC unit technician miraculously survived his fall due in large part to the cushioning created by a stack of cardboard boxes. This near fatal accident required careful and deliberate investigation into the reasons it occurred. XL Services was called upon to determine the cause for the accident including industry standards and safety regulations that may have been violated.
SLIPPERY WHEN WET
ADA laws are now 20 years old and continue to evolve as equal rights to access increase and become more specific. "According to the 2004 American Community Survey, more than 51 million Americans have some form of disability, and over 2.7 million people over the age of 15 use a wheelchair. As the population ages and medical advances allow people with disabilities to live longer lives, this number will increase." - Washington, Aug. 9 / PRNewswire-USNewswire.

In the tradition of "no job is too big or too small," we perform one issue investigations and the most complex, from single family dwellings to large scale multi-unit developments and commercial buildings.
Most consultants would turn around and run away from this complex roofing project, not us. With nearly 1,000 penetrations, roofing leaks galore, and an occupied building requiring all 120 air conditioning units to function without a shut down, XL Services took on the challenge to design an effective re-roofing protocol and oversee the construction which included both a multilevel built up system and a raised seam metal roof. We are proud to say this nightmare had a happy ending.
