Damaged/displaced tiles were observed during the evaluation process, enabling moisture infiltration into the assembly.

On-site monitoring was provided to ensure proper installation of designed roof.


Performed a comprehensive analysis on all affected buildings, documenting related damages for each. Temporary remedies were provided to mitigate continuing damage at leak locations which were unresponsive to the emergency repairs.

On necessary complexes, provided design work addressing replacement of assemblies damaged by the hurricane. Included in the design considerations were installation of a complete system (claddings, fasteners, underlayment, and flashings) that meets and exceeds geographic wind-uplift requirements to withstand up to category 3 force hurricane winds. Also provided documented details to the roofing manufacturer and received for our Client an unprecedented 20 year NDL complete system (underlayment, flashing and cladding) warranties for all associated designed facilities.

Also provided our Client with the Specifications, Detail Drawings, Contract Documents and assistance with other related issues including Pre-Bid activities.

During this process, we assisted the Client with preparation of insurance claim and other supporting documents, and supported the Client during the insurance claim process to facilitate an appropriate settlement.
