ForensisGroup can help you find credible concrete expert witnesses for your case. Concrete, a mixture of sand, water, cement, and gravel or stone, is one of the most commonly used materials in the field of construction. Building structures often utilize concrete in the foundations, walls, and roofs. The material is especially relevant in construction claims and lawsuits because there are standard practices for using concrete for construction.
While the material is known for its durability, concrete is still susceptible to tension. There are different types of concrete, each prepared in a unique manner that works to prevent such damage from occurring. Pre-tensioned and post-tensioned concrete are each manufactured with the use of steel tendons, which places pressure and stress on the concrete. The tendons are removed once the concrete has adapted to the tension, which prepares concrete for the stress it will experience once it has been utilized in a structure, whether it is a building, bridge, or other type of project.
Unforeseen damage may occur with any type of construction project, so it is important to utilize the skills of a concrete expert witness experienced with failure analysis and evaluating construction defects.
Lawsuits involving concrete are usually made against the concrete manufacturer, general contractors, or construction companies.
