Structural & Equipment/Elevator Damage
U.S. Forensic performs structural evaluations of damage to foundations and buildings from hydrostatic and hydrodynamic pressures of flood waters. We can also assess damage caused by scour, erosion, and consolidation due to inundation. We can provide repair versus replacement options including costs. Flood related damages to the mechanical and electrical components of buildings can also be determined.
Basement Determinations & Sheathing Damage
We provide relative elevation surveys and positive drainage surveys to determine if a lowest floor is a basement as defined by the National Flood Insurance Program. U.S. Forensic can assist on sheathing damage assessments, elevated building versus slab on grade evaluations, and flood in progress determinations.
U.S. Forensic also maintains High Water Mark databases for all major domestic flood events and can provide reports of maximum flood depths and wind speeds for assistance it claims involving concurrent wind and water damages, or claims where flooding cannot otherwise be confirmed. For large events, we can offer aerial footage immediately after the event. This information can be accessed by our clients.
