Structural Analysis

MEG provides a wide range of structural damage assessment investigations and other limited site inspections which typically involve a physical inspection of the structure. MEG has performed numerous damage and safety assessments of municipal, industrial, commercial and residential structures.

Fire Damage
Hurricane Damage

High winds are a primary cause of hurricane-inflicted loss of life and property damage. Another cause is the flooding resulting from coastal storm surges and the torrential rains that can accompany a storm and overload inland lakes and drainways.

MEG was involved in assessing property damage in 2004 when hurricanes Charley, Ivan, Frances and Jeanne resulted in severe property damage. We were called upon to make evaluations of roof damage, flooding damage, building settlement, and more in Polk, Hardee, Highlands, Orange and Charlotte counties. As we are statewide now, we can provide these services wherever hurricane disaster strikes.

Wind Damage

Wind from sources other than hurricanes can tear the roof from a building, rip siding from exterior walls, and launch wind-blown debris through windows and doors breaching the building envelope. Falling trees can crush roofs and walls. Hurricanes and tornadoes generate exceptionally destructive winds that can turn buildings into piles of rubble. High winds can occur anywhere, and strike during many types of storms. MEG has expertise and capability to help you evaluate property damage from winds.

Water Damage

There are numerous possible losses caused by water intrusion which can result in destructive processes such as decay of wood, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood, and many others. The damage may be imperceptibly slow and minor such as water spots that could eventually mar a surface, or it may be instantaneous and catastrophic.

Fire Damage

Determining if fire damage is caused by natural occurrence or human intervention, MEG can conduct a Structure Condition Assessment of the property to determine cause of damage, salvageability, and evaluate the need and methods for repair.
