An expertise will allow you to determine whether
the damage is sudden or gradual and to establish whether the damage existed before the acquisition of the building by the new owners;
confirm if the situation was visible to the buyer or the inspector before the purchase;
verify the extent of the damage;
assess the costs of repairing damage;
establish a discounted depreciation percentage.
Expertise consists of a thorough inspection of one or more specific problems. This type of inspection sometimes requires a certain number of punctures, analyzes or destructive tests. In such a case, we always use state-of-the-art equipment and analytical tools to achieve our goals.
When your roof is high and its slopes very steep, with its complex slopes, the intervention of a drone is the fastest, safest and economic solution for you. The drone can access restricted and dangerous areas more easily, avoiding the intervention of a nacelle and scaffolding. In addition, you will keep accurate images of your building.
Thermography identifies anomalies in air infiltration, the performance of insulation materials and special attention is paid to water infiltration.
Expertise reports on hidden defects provide information to the people concerned in order to establish whether poor workmanship or hidden defects are the cause.
If the inspector agrees to testify in court with his best knowledge of the technical and budgetary analyzes of an expert inspection, he will enlighten the judge in the resolution of technical problems. Mr. Richard Oliva integrity, impartiality and objectivity are recognized and respected.
