Insurance Claim Help – Forensic Engineering

Crosstown Engineering’s professionals provide independent structural engineering services including foundation inspections and engineering reports for property owners, insurers and developers throughout the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. These engineering reports provide an in-depth assessment of your home’s foundation problems and also includes an expert, independent opinion for the foundation repair plan.

Our evaluators can determine if the foundation has moved and determine if the movement is the cause of observable damage. This is very helpful when dealing with insurance companies.

Foundation Inspection Dallas and Fort Worth Region: What to Expect

We’re experienced in a broad range of damage assessments and origin of damage claims. Damage can be due to a variety of causes including: wind, flood, sinkhole activity, design flaws, improper material selection, material shrinkage or defection, foundation movement caused by organic material decay, expansive or “active” clay soils, loose fill, relic subterranean formations, construction defects or poor construction and much more.

Once we’ve identified the cause of the observed damage, we issue a signed and sealed professional engineering report that documents the damage assessment and identifies its probable cause.
