Floods temporarily inundate areas in excessive rain, water or mud to the point that structures and equipment can be damaged, degraded or destroyed. In some cases, what’s often thought of as an unavoidable, natural occurrence is a disaster in which human intervention played a role.
Our licensed team is experienced in determining flood-related damages including exterior envelope, structural, electrical, equipment, moisture intrusion and mold. Additionally, we discern scope of damage, estimate of repair, and replacement cost of water-damaged structures and equipment. Investigators combine their thorough understanding of building codes with event weather data and onsite observation to isolate damage caused by a previous event or deferred maintenance.
