Flood damage inspections Texas, New Orleans

flood damage inspections after hurricane in Louisiana, Texas


Flood damage Inspections Texas & New Orleans inspects building exterior for downed power lines and gas leaks. Gas leaks will smell like rotten eggs. If you suspect a gas leak, contact the utility company immediately.

While entering the building, see if the door sticks at the top. If it does, this could mean that the ceiling is ready to collapse. After you open the door, stand outside the doorway, clear of any falling debris.

Wear sturdy, treaded boots. According to the American Red Cross, the most common injury following a disaster is cut feet. Broken bottles, nails, glass, and other dangerous debris may litter the floor, and stairs may be very slippery.

A flood damage inspections Texas process entails a series of steps by the flood damage inspections company . These steps are as follows:

1. Identification of the source of flooding, Speed of flooding, etc.

This is the first process in the inspection process. Flooding may be caused by a number of factors like natural disasters as well as from the indoors. When water damage is caused by natural disasters like storms or overflowing rivers, the intrusion source becomes very obvious. However, water from indoors may cause a bit of a challenge to identify and spot their sources. These could be caused by bursting of pipes, unnoticed water sipping from the roof and into the walls for a long period of time, and much more by our licensed engineers.

The flood damage inspections Texas & New Orleans engineers are trained to handle such scenarios and they come equipped with the necessary tools for the work to do flood damage inspections Louisiana. These tools include moisture detectors, thermal imaging cameras, and probes that can identify even the slightest amount of humidity in the house.

2. Classification of the water according to its sanitation level

The next step in the water damage inspection is the classification of the floodwater. The floodwater during flood inspections Texas is normally categorized into three different groups namely:

White water – this is the cleanest of the three categories as well as the easiest to recover from. This simply means that the water would not pose an immediate threat due to chemical or biological contaminants. The water usually comes from rain, water heater overflows, and leaky faucets.
Grey water – this is the second cleanest of the three. It also does not pose an immediate threat to the well-being of the inhabitants of the house. Grey water can also be recovered from, though not as easy as for white water. The sources of these water include wash basins, baths and showers.
Black water – During flood damage inspections Texas, EMA note damages caused by black water.  This is by far the most damaging of the three and the worst as far as sanitation is concerned. Black water can carry toxic substances, corrosive and harmful microbes which have the capacity to ruin property and cause health hazards to the people who are exposed to them. Black water normally comes from the toilet, sewage discharge, washing machine runoff, and much more. The water is the hardest to clean up and can require the use of specialized equipment to handle its effects by flood damage inspections New Orleans by licensed engineers who have experience of providing flood damage inspections after hurricane Katrina and Rita.

3. Mapping the extent of damage by Flood Damage Inspections Texas

This is the final step in the water damage inspection process. The home inspector maps the extent of the water intrusion far beyond the view of the naked eye. Through the use of special equipment, the inspectors are able to identify the kind of havoc wreaked by the water intrusion. The inspectors then use this knowledge to help their client create a visual representation of the impact inflicted to give them an idea of the kind of repair work that would be needed. Recommendations are then made on the best ways to improve the property, make possible upgrades, do repairs in order to keep such unfortunate happenings at bay by flood damage inspections Bahamas, New Orleans.

Metal Roof Damage Inspections

Metal Roof Damage Inspections

Steep-Slope and Low-Slope Roofs

Metal roof damage inspections after a storm are done by professional engineers. A metal roofs  can be installed on steep-slope roofs. The metal roofing industry defines steep-slope as a roof with a pitch of 3:12 or greater. Some products can be installed on roofs with a slope as low as 2:12.  Slope limitations vary by manufacturer.  Confirmation of compliance with manufacturers’ specifications lies well beyond the scope of a metal roof damage inspections.

If you suspect that a roof does not comply with the manufacturer’s installation requirements, recommend further evaluation by a qualified engineer or a roofing consultant.

metal roof damage inspections
metal roof damage inspections in North Carolina New Orleans & Florida.

Metal roof damage inspections check for evidence of various damages to metal roof after storm. Normally a metal roof shall not be installed at a slope lower than the minimum recommended by the manufacturer. Occasionally, someone will attempt to get away with installation on a slope lower than that recommended by installing waterproof underlayment. This is insufficient and such an installation is defective.

Metal Roof Damage Inspections

shingle & metal Roof inspections
Roof damage inspections North Carolina, & New Orleans & Florida.

Solid sheathing is typical for a roof deck for metal roofing, although it can be installed over closely spaced boards.  Some types can be installed over battens, which are sometimes called strapping.

Underlayment

Architectural metal roofing is designed to be installed over underlayment. This is especially crucial when metal roof is installed over an existing roof-covering material.

Because structural panels have no deck on which to install underlayment, they may develop problems if they’re installed on homes which generate significant amounts of moisture or which have poorly ventilated attics that produce condensation.

You probably won’t be able to confirm the presence of underlayment on homes with metal roofs, and structural panels are rare in residential construction.

Metal Roof Damage Inspections for Panels

Metal panels roofs are commonly used as residential roofing come in a variety of profiles. In high-quality roofing, panels are continuous from ridge to eave, and vary in width. You may also see some panels that overlap, and some with seams that butt or interlock. EMA can perform metal roof damage inspections after storms & hurricanes.

Panels sometimes have ribs formed into the field for added strength and wind resistance.  The side edges are formed to interlock, creating vertical seams in the finished roof.

Types of Buildings Using Metal Roofing

Metal may seem like a material better suited for commercial purposes, but you would be surprised by the types of buildings that benefit from metal roofs. Their use is widespread, and if you begin to pay attention, you’ll see them almost everywhere on:

  • Schools
  • Restaurants
  • Churches
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Stores
  • Office buildings
  • Homes
  • Barns

The list goes on. It has excellent weather resistance, making it an ideal choice for commercial purposes in many locations. It can keep patients in hospitals safer than other roof types because of its durability.

More and more homeowners are choosing metal because as an individual, your budget is limited and metal roof costs are lower than other materials over time. No project is too small, and metal can be aesthetically pleasing if you want to utilize it for an overhang, an awning, your workshop, or another creative project.

Metal Roofing Maintenance after metal roof damage inspections

While metal roof maintenance is minimal, it’s important to conduct regular inspections to ensure there’s no damage or to see if you need to repair or replace it. Twice a year, you should inspect your metal roof by:

  • Cleaning off dirt and stains that the rain didn’t wash away
  • Cleaning drains and gutters
  • Removing any branches or other objects that may be caught in the roof
  • Removing any other metal objects touching the roof
  • Checking for scratches, chipping, or fading

Most of the time, rain and other weather will wash away anything on your metal roof. If it’s installed correctly, this is the way it’s supposed to work. The surface is smooth and intended to make it easy to remove dirt.

However, there will be times when you need to clean it a little or make sure branches and other debris aren’t scratching it. Depending on the type of metal, contact with other metals can cause it to degrade more quickly, so it’s also critical to check for any other metal objects that may be interacting with your roof and remove them.

Roof Engineers North Carolina

If you discover that you have a sag in the roof of your home or building you are probably wondering what caused it and how it should be fixed. Many times sags in a roof are due to excessive deflection or a break in one or more of the structural roof members caused by some type of overload. In Colorado roofs can become overloaded with snow drifting on lower roofs that intersect upper floor walls. In some instances, roof members can deflect or break when they are temporarily overloaded with stacks of asphalt shingles or tiles during re-roofing. Older roofs may experience noticeable “creep” deflection which is a phenomenon where structural wood elements “relax” over time and experience long term permanent deflection under a sustained load. 

Roofs can also sag when the attic is not adequately vented by roof engineers north carolina. Wood framing can experience significant expansion and contraction under changing temperature and humidity conditions that occur within the attic throughout the year. Wood members that have higher moisture contents typically experience a higher magnitude of long term creep deflection. If the roof is constructed with pre-manufactured trusses the connector plates can become loose over time as the wood containing the embedded plate teeth expands and contracts. If the connector plates pull loose then the connected truss members may pull out of the joints causing the truss to deflect. Loose plates can also result in load transfer to other members of the truss which can lead to cracks, splits or breaks in a truss member. 

Mechanically pressed metal connector plates can carry a surprising amount of force but even very small gaps between the plates and the wood surfaces significantly reduces the holding capacity of the plates.

Roof Inspections Corpus Christi

our engineers performing the roof inspections Corpus Christi for shingled, tiled and flat roofs as a result of high winds, hurricane and storms & roof reinstallations. The shingles and tiles are inspected for damages and type of damages either caused by mechanical means or due to a hurricane, storm, high winds and/or hail. For hail and wind damage, the roof surface is checked for puncture and tears in shingles asphalt mat as well as broken or damaged tiles at roof ridges, rakes and high point. Shingles are checked for bond breakage, nail pops, tear downs and puncture. The evidence is then cross referenced with weather data and other factors and an engineering report is thus prepared and submitted to our clients.

Then the granules can detach from the shingles. EMA check in the gutters and at the end of the downspouts for asphalt granule deposits during the roof inspections Corpus Christi. Inspect the roof for spots that look bare where all the granules have detached and been washed away. Also inspect for missing, torn or warped shingles. When the edges or corners of shingles are rising or curling, they have outlived their usefulness and will need replacing. Also look for indentations or punctures from hail damage. While homeowner’s insurance usually covers damage from hail, if the property has been vacant or a previous homeowner collected insurance money and did not have the roof replaced or repaired, you could be paying either for repairs or a new roof. In some areas placing a new layer of shingles over the old is allowed by code. There is usually a limit as to how many times this can be done such as 3. So if a property needs a new roof and you can simply place a new layer of shingles over the old you save a lot of money. But a roof that needs replacing and has reached the legal number of shingle layers will require a tear off and all old layers of roofing will need to be removed. This can be far more costly than simply adding shingles so knowing how many layers are on the roof and the legal limitations can be valuable. You can commonly determine how many layers are present by examining the edge of the roof.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are commonly steel, copper, aluminum, or galvanized iron. Most metal roofs have a life expectancy of about 50 years. Perforations, pits, rust, or corrosion can help determine the age of the roof. EMA engineers cCheck the seams, corners, and joints for loose, dried out, or peeling caulk or other seam material during roof inspections Corpus Christi.
