Masonry expert witnesses are experienced with many types of projects within the construction field, as the discipline refers to any type of structure utilizing stones, bricks, concrete, and other mortar-based materials. A project involving masonry may become the subject of a lawsuit if the material in question is not properly implemented during the construction process. Masonry may be especially important in the overall quality and construction safety of civil, residential, or business-based structures, as the material is mainly used for the walls and foundations of construction projects.
Masonry expert witnesses work with material prominently used in the foundation of numerous structures, defects found in this area would have a negative effect on the project by causing construction defects and damages. Installing adequate waterproofing methods with the purpose of preventing water intrusion is therefore very important when working with masonry-related materials, as the walls must be built to properly withstand such elemental damage. The failure of masonry-based projects may be detected during construction inspections, which may lead to a potential lawsuit as a means of determining the source of the issue, whether it is on the fault of the employees, contractors, or an issue with the material itself.
Masonry expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion based on damage calculations, building inspections, and other methods of assessing the amount of damage caused by a masonry-related issue.
