Structural Forensic Roof Inspection

Forensic Engineering Services

RSH Engineers are well trained and equipped to provide you with premier forensic engineering services related to storm-related damages resulting from tornado, hail, wind, hurricane, floods, etc.  We can also investigate the damage and provide you with an accurate and detailed report about the problem, along with appropriate solutions.  In addition, our engineers can assist you with your insurance claims by performing on-site inspection of the damages and by providing the comprehensive engineering report in the industry! This will certainly help you with your insurance claim!

 

 

As the name suggests, forensic engineering is application of engineering principles to investigate performance problems and structure failure, find the causes that resulted in the failure and provide guidelines for conducting investigation. Forensic engineering companies send in forensic structural engineers to evaluate whether the structural failure was caused due to faulty parts, normal wear and tear or mal-intention. Forensic engineers conduct multiple tests to re-enact events and recreate the failure as part of examining every aspect of the accident and generate comprehensive reports that are admissible for insurance claims.

Forensic engineering firms take up cases where investigation is needed to understand why a built structure or system failed. These may be issues of the building itself or the property surrounding it. We have a team of experienced forensic structural engineers and civil engineers who will perform forensic inspections for roof damage due to heavy snowfall, wall collapse due to heavy rain, a collapsed tree, or electric circuit damage due to tornadoes or cyclones. They will check the reasons why the damage occurred –

 

  • Couldn’t the roof bear the weight of the snow?
  • Was the leakage or seepage in the interior or exterior part of the walls?
  • Was the hardware rusted?
  • Had the owner overlooked regulations?

 

Our forensic engineering consultants are regularly recruited by both homeowners and insurance companies to perform structural forensic roof inspections and present a technical report by a qualified forensic engineer. The forensic engineering consultants will analyze and gather data related to the structure, components and materials that have suffered failure. They will go around the investigation place and –

 

  • Conduct inspections
  • Take measurements
  • Collect evidence
  • Conduct experiments
  • Development models
  • And get exemplary material

As part of our forensic engineering services, our forensic engineer will also check if all the codes and standards were followed. They will ascertain if the cause for damage occurred during construction or due to wear and tear. They will study –

 

  • The structural failure
  • Origin and causes of failure
  • Compare with similar past failures
  • And standard of care taken

 

Our forensic engineers and specialists apply accepted scientific and engineering principles to collect evidence and conduct analysis to understand the cause for the structural failure. We have lent our forensic engineering expertise to commercial property owners, home owners, tenants, real estate developers, real estate agents, insurance companies among others. We have worked on claims for accidents caused due to fire, explosion, construction ground vibration, wind, snow, rain, tree impact, lightning strikes, construction defects, foundation issues, structural collapse etc. We offer exclusive forensic engineering services for,

 

  • Reconstruction
  • Property condition assessment
  • Structural defects and failure
  • Architectural design investigation
  • Product safety and failure
  • Building system investigation
  • Building code compliance
  • Wind, water, and corrosion damage
  • Fire cause and origin
  • Prescribing scope for immediate structural safety measures
  • Preparing engineering report
  • Preparation of engineering drawing for repairs and reconstruction
  • Building envelope assessment
  • Building permit application review
  • HVAC design investigation
  • General field review during construction
  • Septic systems design evaluation
  • Property survey and grading plans
  • Assessing scope for structural repair

 

Our forensic engineering team has knowledge about all structures such as steel, concrete, wood, masonry, and aluminum structures. They will determine the cause of failure, extent of related damage, emergency safety measures, comments on restoration of damage and the expenses  for repairs. We provide accurate, evidence-based solutions and offer support for insurance claims and legal purposes. We have a vast experience of conducting forensic roof inspections to help in resolving insurance claims for many industrial, commercial, and residential constructions.

 

We assure rapid response from our forensic engineering team because the earlier the investigations are made, the more evidence is available. It facilitates a more accurate description of the problem and we can submit our investigation report faster.
