What We Evaluate

Water is one of the most destructive forces around and as a result flood and flooding related damage comes in many forms. Finding the full extent and cause of damage is of the utmost importance when trying to evaluate and property that has been affected by flooding. We find it, make recommendations on how to fix it – and offer tips for preventative measures.

Flood related damage can have a variety of different root causes:

  • Heavy or unusual rainfall
  • Saturating periods of rain
  • Melting of built up snow
  • Steep grades causing runoff
  • Impermeable rock or saturated soils
  • Compacted or dry soils
  • Poor grading or grade design
Extent of Flood Damage

The full extent of damage from flooding can be difficult to assess as by its very nature water will penetrate through any gap. Floods can even cause significant structural damage when a property seems to have missed the runoff as a rising water table changes the soil properties underneath a structure.

We can evaluate the full extent of damage from a flood:

  • Contamination of soil or groundwater
  • Flooding related fires
  • Wood rot or damage to affected wood members
  • Damage or warping of wood finishes and flooring
  • Foundation damage from changing soils
  • Damage to interior finishes from water contact
  • Roof damage from ponding water or overload
We find you the facts to help move your investigtaion, litigation, or claim forward.
