INSPECTION / ASSESSMENTS
We inspect home structures and other facilities for damage from fire, storm, flooding and other disasters. In addition, we provide detailed assessment of any possible structural defects which may be noted during a residential home inspection. We work closely with home inspectors, attorneys, realtors, mortgage brokers, bankers, insurance companies, appraisers and other professionals involved in the sale, purchase or repair of a home or other facility. We provide timely reports and if required, repair solutions to support some of the aggressive schedules that can accompany a real estate transaction. Most of our reports are completed and delivered to our clients within 24 hours.
We also work with many home owners who require assessment of their existing home due for storm damages such as that caused by “superstorm” SANDY. Many individuals have contracted our services to obtain an independent written assessment to provide to insurance carriers, FEMA, etc.
We frequently prepare detailed design drawings on AutoCad as well as specifications for the repair of existing basement foundation walls, footings, roof trusses, rafters and joist and other structural elements in residential, commercial and industrial structures. These drawings and specifications are usually required to obtain permits from the local municipal building department.

-Basement wall replacement or reinforcement with carbon fiber and Kevlar strips or steel reinforcing rods
