What went wrong and how extensive is the damage? Why did the problem arise? How does one fix the damage? Through careful site observations and research we answer these questions and generate reports, drawings, and specifications as requested. We may also offer professional advice and provide expert witness services in the case of litigation processes. We specialize in rooting out the causes of material decay and structural failure due to the effects of moisture, fire, weather, unstable and expansive soils, and insufficiencies of existing design and construction. We commonly experience occurrences of mold, concrete deterioration, efflorescence, rust, deformation, and erosion, on various scales and stages of damage. Our expertise also includes preventative solutions to a myriad of potential problems by bringing buildings up to code, the augmentation or replacement of structural systems, and proposing work-arounds that economically satisfy the situation and our clients.
