From forensic engineering and roofing to general construction and beyond, we can serve as a single source for nearly all your property-damage related consulting needs.

SRP Consulting Services - An Example Of What We Do

Documenting damage

In a typical engagement, we send a team of experienced consultants equipped with all the necessary resources and skills to assess and properly document the full extent of damage to your property. While onsite, the team of experts; which may include licensed drone pilots-in-command, structural engineers, roofing consultants, fire or flood investigators, and construction professionals, work together to perform a thorough site investigation, photographing and documenting the building size, construction materials, current condition, and amount of damage to all structures.

The team leverages state of the art equipment and industry-leading techniques to properly assess and document data. They can effectively access wide-area locations, providing real-time streaming video, accurately capturing critical details that will help support your claim.

Damage reporting

Once we have performed the initial inspection and collected all the data, we provide a full damage assessment estimate within 24 hours. Then approximately 10 days later, we deliver our detailed comprehensive Property Damage Scope and Costs of Restoration Report which serves as an important tool to help you recover all the costs associated with your loss claim.

We can also supplement these reports, providing separate cost impacts for Restoration, Code Upgrade, Renovation, developing a business resumption plan to help you achieve your goals.

Whether the project requires a simple evaluation or an exhaustive investigation, we commit ourselves to providing the highest caliber of service, taking honor in consistently delivering rapid response, accurate analysis, and complete in-depth reporting for every client.
