Insurance Inspections

Criterium Williams Engineers expertise in the inspection of building systems is often requested when clients need someone to determine the cause and origin of a failure, determine how best to remedy the problem, develop estimates and contract documents, or manage the repair. We do not decide whether defects are covered by insurance but render an opinion as to what caused the problem and what can be done about it. 

We work with property owners and attorneys to insurance companies to provide an unbiased opinion in an effort to fairly resolve any differences of opinions.

Typical defects relate to:

  • Site and Structure- e.g. subsidence, cracking, drainage problems, water penetration

  • Mechanical Systems - e.g. comfort concerns, indoor air quality, energy costs

  • Electrical Systems - e.g. capacity, safety

  • Accessibility


Our initial engineering report documents our findings and will provide opinions as to the suspected cause. Additional investigation may be required, or a design repair may need to be produced.
