Historical Record of Current Condition
When your home or property is damaged by a storm or fire, do you have the documents to prove to your insurance carrier the condition of the building prior to the storm? With the photos we take and the written report we fill out, you’ll have valuable information on the condition of the property. One of our biggest clients used their MBA and its photos to prove their roof was undamaged prior to the hailstorm and helped them receive more than $10,000,000 for their historical roofing systems to be entirely replaced. The money invested in the MBA was well worth it!
Discovering Problems Before More Damage Occurs
All exterior building systems require maintenance. Small, but vitally important parts of your exterior are critical to protect your property.
Caulks used to seal the joints between dissimilar materials is a major problem for historical buildings. Caulk ages and loses it adhesion and flexibility. It does not last forever. Having your MBA will provide insight into the conditions of this vital part.
Squirrels and racoons are not welcome on your roof. They are only looking for a food source and or a warm place to stay. These animals can destroy roofing, siding and wood soffits and cause major damage.
Mortar between bricks and stones is soft to protect against damaging the harder bricks and stone, therefore it deteriorates at a quicker rate, failing, causing leaks.
When was the last time you inspected your chimney?
Discover minor issues like these with the MBA before you have a major problem (they usually cost more than $199.00).
