Frequently, Element Analytical is engaged to assess the extent of damage to structures with request to detail a scope of repairs. Distinguishing between charring and discoloration only of wood framing from fire soot or finding underlying conditions from impact such as by an automobile are critical in providing an accurate scope of damage repairs. Regardless of the loss event, our structural engineers are familiar with applicable codes, and commonly prepare repair design solutions that clients have told us are cost-effective when submitted to contractors for bidding.
