Construction defect investigations are designed to determine and document the specific cause(s) of damage to a structure and to identify the responsible person (individual or company) or failed component (manufacturer). The information enhances the client’s ability to seek damages from a responsible third party.
This service simultaneously capitalizes on our home inspecting and claims adjusting disciplines. Knowing how a home is constructed is only half the battle; an indepth understanding of how the various systems operate in conjunction with each other and drawing upon past investigative experience enables us to pinpoint the cause of the failure. Destructive testing is sometimes warranted. A narrative report details the step-by-step process by which the cause of the failure was determined. Photographs document the sequence of the investigation.
