DAMAGE TO BUILDINGS

Court and private reports

Reports play an important role in clarifying damage or defects and help prepare decisions. It is often difficult to identify the exact cause of damage as it is not always obvious. However, through experience and diagnostics, the cause and responsibility are usually determined with seriousness, objectivity and impartiality. In the event of damage, it is important to reliably determine whether the causes are due to planning, execution or material errors or a combination of various factors. In some cases it may be necessary to work with other experts or to carry out material testing in external laboratories. The reports prepared should be written in language that is understandable and understandable for laypeople and should provide a plausible and coherent justification for construction professionals.

Claims Management - "Step by Step"

If you are confronted with damage, the following procedure must always be observed. The cause of the damage must always be determined first before any remediation measures can begin. Practice shows that this approach is often deviated from, even though it seems logical. For example, in the case of moisture damage (mains water damage, mold infestation, etc.), renovation (drying of components, etc.) has already begun, even though the causes have not yet been determined. Additional costs, which could amount to well over 100% of the damage repair costs, could be avoided!
