Structure Evaluation Engineers, Inc. (SEE)  was retained to evaluate the damage to the foundation walls after flooding and provide litigation support and expert witness services.

After a heavy storm the subdivision flooded and the street water level started rising gradually to the top of the first step of the front stoop. Although the sump pump was working, the basement was flooded over night. After the street water receded the water in the basement was pumped out. After pumping the water out the owner noticed a horizontal crack on the foundation walls around the house at six feet above the basement floor and significant sand infiltration in the basement. SEE determined how the sand infiltrated into the basement and the cause of horizontal cracking. The basement walls needed to be strengthened immediately to maintain structural integrity of the house.    

SEE worked closely with the attorneys representing the owner to provide litigation support and expert witness services. We prepared expert opinion statement and testified in a deposition.
