BSC specializes in foundation related damages and assessments. Generally, foundation claims consist of an evaluation of the effects of a plumbing leak or high-winds on movement of a foundation.
BSC's founder spent a large portion of his career designing wood buildings that incorporated steel, concrete, and masonry elements. This unique experience allows BSC to quickly identify damage, life-safety issues, and repair scopes.

Roofing & Siding Damage
BSC has extensive experience evaluating roofing and siding damage from high-wind events. Moreover, our in-depth understanding of how various cladding materials weather over time allow us to distinguish between new and old damage.
BSC can identify the sources of envelope breaches and help identify the cause of the opening. In addition, we can aid interested parties in scoping the extent of damages.
Knowing how to properly install cladding elements can be the key to identifying why and how a component was damaged and, often more importantly, how to repair it.
Fire Damage Assessments
BSC has extensive experience evaluating the extent of fire, smoke, and extinguishing water damage.
Often, structural elements of a building are exposed to heat, smoke, and water during the course of a fire event. BSC can identify elements that require replacement or repair and conversely, those that can be salvaged or that may remain in service.
Our founder spent a portion of his career managing the design of fire suppression systems in government-regulated port buildings. This unique experience provides BSC with an invaluable resource when code upgrades are a consideration after a fire event.
