One very common cause of construct defects can be moisture intrusion. This can result in building defect claims and health ailments for the building’s occupants. ForensisGroup has moisture intrusion expert witnesses with years of experience working in the construction industry, many with a primary focus in home inspection. Others are experienced in civil engineering and specialize in moisture intrusion, damage, and construction failure. Other moisture intrusion experts are experienced carpenters and home inspectors for insurance companies.
These experts conduct forensic structural and civil engineering investigations, and construction defect evaluations. They analyze the building envelope, or the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building. This shell is the main protectant against air, water, heat, and light, and is the area where moisture intrusion problems occur. These professionals have experience inspecting moisture intrusion and other types of water damage, such as wind and hail. They conduct claims appraisal work, subrogation analysis, and product failure evaluations. Their consulting experience includes performing investigations for insurance companies, attorneys, and property owners.
