Field Observations

Our most experienced engineers and field service staff are available for forensic investigations. We perform these services for homeowners, builders, attorneys, and insurance companies. We use scientific instruments such as a manometer, moisture meter, pacometer, ferroscans and total station for non-destructive field measurements. This work is typically presented in a formal written report outlining the observations, causative items, conclusions and recommended repairs. Previous investigations have included masonry walls, basement walls, retaining walls, fences, lateral load systems, wood truss roof structure, heavy timber roofs, dry wall cracking, stucco cracking, post-tensioned foundation systems, conventional foundations and mat foundations.
